About

Have you ever been asked if you've thought about seeing a therapist? Did your mind immediately start questioning whether you're so damaged that only a professional could help you? What if they were asking if you've ever considered that you are worthy of a safe space dedicated to providing you the opportunity to process your experiences?
Acknowledging that you need support is not a weakness. The pain you’re holding in could be causing more damage than you realize. You may not have been ready to seek help in the past. You may be used to being strong and telling your loved ones that you’re fine. But I want you to know that your feelings are valid and you have the freedom to be vulnerable.
You have found a therapist that aims to understand your hardest struggles and celebrate your successes. I want to hear your story and help you figure out where you want to go next. I can promise that I’ll be kind, straightforward, real, flexible, and always show up with a great sense of humor. I look forward to meeting you!
