Clytie says, “I do not see clients as “people to be fixed,” but rather people who are hurting, struggle to regulate, discern their emotions and/or need spiritual guidance. Everyone has experiences times of distress and this is an aspect of life. I believe it is my role to help clients gain the skills or perspective they need to cope with their situations.”
