As an adept counselor and psychotherapist, I bring valuable personal insight into mental distress. My approach is centered on attentive listening, empathetic understanding, and creating a secure, non-judgmental, and confidential environment tailored to your needs. Through my practice and own lived experience of mental distress, I've discovered this approach to be immensely beneficial. In my own journey when I initially began therapy, I was anxious and unsure of what to expect. However, I quickly realized its profound benefits for both myself and my family.
I will accompany you on your journey with a person-centered approach, recognizing your expertise in your own life. I see my role as supporting you in becoming the best version of yourself. Through fostering a sense of safety, I find my patients often gain clarity on their path and discover their own solutions to challenging situations and circumstances.
I encourage you to take the first step today. When you feel heard, validated, & supported, you'll uncover a transformative space within yourself, revealing your real self & true potential.
