"As of June 10th, I have availability for new clients on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays. Life can be hard. With life's challenges and demands, it is easy to get drained, tired, overwhelmed and worried. You get so caught up in doing things that the world demands of you that you may forget to tune-in to yourself. Therapy is a space where you can break away from the world, allow yourself to reflect, and explore how and why you're living your life the way you are. It's where you can have good days and you can have bad days and both are completely okay and accepted. And, eventually, in that space a transformation can happen."
