"Have you been considering going to counseling for some time? It's okay to be uncertain about what it's all about or how even how to get the conversation going. As your therapist, my primary goal is to provide you with a comfortable space where you can safely unburden yourself as we explore your concerns. I find traditional approaches like CBT, DBT & EMDR are most effective when personalized in conjunction with interactive multimedia like art and music. Throughout our therapeutic journey I will tailor my approach to meet you where you are at, with a primary goal of helping support you in living an self-actualized and authentic life."
