Message to clients

Life is difficult, and it is important to take care of yourself. Being here means you are considering taking a step towards self-empowerment, and making that decision is in itself a first step. While you may fear judgement from others, be the most critical judge of yourself, or feel stuck and unable to find a balance in your life, I’m here to say that it does not always have to be this way. It is possible for you to access the strength within you and put yourself first! I will guide you through this process of self-exploration.

Whatever the everyday life challenges you are facing may be, I am here to help you work through them. I believe in a person-centered approach in which we tackle your holistic wellbeing with honesty and at a pace that feels comfortable to you. Working together will enable you to feel more in control of your life.

I consider therapy to be the kindest gift you can offer yourself. If you think you’re ready to take the next step towards a positive change, schedule a 15 minute free consultation to find out if we are a good fit.
