About

It can be difficult to start the journey for healing. I believe that any person who is willing to look inward, develop self awareness and ask themselves the tough questions, is on the right path to a healthier, rewarding life. I look for honesty, transparency and open mindedness in a client and with that I believe I can guide them to help them meet whatever goals they are ready to address.
By providing a non judgement, safe, space I am offering a place where clients can feel heard and validated. I offer solution focused, empathic approaches to treatment plans and goals. I look to challenge and provide empowerment.
It may be scary to take that first step to addressing life transitions, emotional issues or everyday stressors and sometimes feeling like "I can just deal with it on my own". I believe people are resilient and autonomous beings. I want to be able to encourage that process while helping build a healthier, happier life.
