Message to clients

I can help clients gain the necessary tools to feel prepared for tomorrow and create the life they have always envisioned through holistic and evidence-based practices. My approach is to meet them in their healing journey and work to create a safe and nonjudgmental path toward their goals.

My personal trauma led me to focus on the wrong things in life in my attempt to heal, which is common for many people who struggle with their mental health. Through my experiences, I learned so much of my life is more in my control than I realized once I understood how much of my worries were outside of my control and how to let go of them. A weight was lifted off my shoulders when I began to focus on being present in my daily life rather than my anxious thoughts. While this didn't solve all of my problems, this shift in perspective felt as if I discovered the key to happiness. I hope to share my discovery with others and empower them to create their happiness.
