About

Congratulations on taking the first step toward a happier, healthier you! Reaching out can sometimes be the hardest part. Are you experiencing low mood, loss of energy, anxiousness, or hopelessness? Do you have difficulty facing situations, people, & places? Are you experiencing feelings of guilt and worthlessness? What about difficulty with relationships in your life? Have you had some extremely difficult things happen and are looking for a space to heal from these experiences? My hope is to walk alongside you on your journey and help you achieve your goals toward feeling better.
