Message to clients

I'm hear to help navigate your emotional responses to struggles in life and to help find your best self. Your own experience is fact and matters. In our sessions, I promote curiosity and openness through a variety of techniques to tap into your inner most concerns.

One thing to know about me-I value the therapeutic relationship. I adopt a humanistic approach when working with clients (I am human and I make mistakes too!). My ultimate hope is to be able to work with my clients through a confident and comfortable rapport.
