Message to clients

It takes a lot of courage to begin your therapy journey, so congrats on deciding to take this next step to improve yourself and your life! Whether you decide to meet with myself or another therapist -- I truly wish you all the best.

My primary goal as a therapist is to ALWAYS provide a safe, nuturing, judgement free space for you to express all of your inner thoughts and feelings. Whether you are feeling depressed, anxious, having relationship issues, or just feeling stuck; it's helpful to have someone who is objective and not directly involved in your everyday life to speak to.

As your therapist, I will use your own unique strengths to help you develop the coping skills needed to deal with life's inevitable challenges (personally, I enjoy art so I gravitate towards incorporating this into some sessions). As your therapist, I will guide you in building an awareness into any past traumas you may have experienced and their impact on your current mood, behaviors and relationships. Unpacking and processing issues and traumas from the past and altering negative thought patterns and behaviors that no longer serve you is essential for healing and living a lighter, healthier, happier life!
