Message to clients

One of the most important factors to change in therapy is the relationship you establish with your therapist. In therapy, it's really about fit. When I'm working with a client, I want them to know that we are in this together and that you don't have to do life alone. It's so awesome to have someone that can support you, help you be accountable, challenge you to grow, who is just for you. If any of this resonated with you, I'd love to connect to see if we are a good fit. This line of work is very meaningful to me and I feel privileged to work with people in this capacity.
