"I became a psychotherapist to help support others through life's challenges. From relationships to family to career, life can be a roller coaster of events. I believe that creating some space in your life, even just one hour a week, can be very beneficial to your health and overall well being. As the saying goes when flying on an airplane, "...make sure to put the oxygen mask on yourself first before attempting to help others around you." This is crucial. If you are not well, how can you help take care of those around you?"
