Therapy is an opportunity for a collaborative healing experience. When we struggle to cope or function it's common to blame ourselves or feel stuck in it. But my training and general experience as a human have shown me that the way we move through the world is responsive to our experiences: remarkable and adaptive. I've never met a client who didn't make sense to me. You don't have to figure it all out on your own. I would be honored to share my skills and perspective to help you move beyond just surviving and into embodying your life force.
