Message to clients

Welcome! My primary goal is to ensure that my clients feel safe and heard. Are you feeling stuck revisiting traumatic past experiences, overwhelmed by worries, or experiencing persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness? Do you struggle with negative self-talk, self-doubt, or intense emotions like anxiety, anger, guilt, or shame? Perhaps you're facing challenges in building emotional intimacy and finding genuine connections that align with your values in relationships. Are you grappling with substance use and feeling unsure of who you are anymore?

I understand how difficult it may feel to be vulnerable, and I am here to support you. Together, we'll identify your struggles and provide you with tools to find calmness in your mind and body. More importantly, I'm committed to guiding you on the journey to finding your true self.

I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that aligns with your personal values and life goals, ensuring that we address your unique needs and support your overall well-being.
