"I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough."
