Message to clients

Regardless if it is our first session or our 50th session, I will meet you exactly where you are at for each session. There are no expectations of where you “should” or “should not” be. Instead, we will work from where you are that day to understand the basis around why and how you are thinking and feeling. In the midst of uncertainty, anxiety, and fear, I will be right there with you, actively listening and intentionally speaking with you so we can make progress together. I do not believe that therapy is a “one size fits all” approach to health, but instead an individualized necessity based on you as a person. I encourage my clients to be their best selves; unapologetically and authentically.
