I always feel honored when a client or family invites me into their journey through the therapeutic process. Everyone has difficult experiences, some of which can shape them in ways they never wanted. I love walking alongside clients to help restore freedom and parts of themselves that they lost somewhere along the line. It is my privilege to watch clients leave behind things they no longer need—be that an unhealthy view of themselves, behavioral patterns that lead to inauthentic relationships, difficulty in handling emotions, or anything else that hinders clients from stepping into everything they want to become.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” - Albert Einstein. I believe that the script we tell ourselves and others is incredibly powerful. The way in which we relate to others, navigate the world, and give meaning to our lives is all guided by our perception of our own narratives. Unfortunately many of us are dominated by our inner critic and negative aspects of that story without including the most important part - you are still here. Even through life's tribulations and traumas there are moments of triumph and resilience. Until we look at the unique parts of our story we remain in misery.
