Message to clients

Thank you so much for checking out my profile. I am honored that you are considering myself as your therapist during this time. I want you to know that my main work has been centered around helping people with big T trauma navigate life after their experience. I also have a fair amount of experience with grief and loss. I began training as a therapist during the pandemic. This allowed me to have a very focused approach to my work.

During the worst time of most people’s lives I was on the frontline helping and serving in underserved areas. I hope that this encourages you to reach out. I am excited to meet with you and want to hear your story. I want to know how we can get you to a place of healing together.
