Message to clients

If your feeling ambivalent about starting therapy- it's normal! The hardest part is finding your way to make it to your first session. At that point you will then see how wonderful it truly is. Therapy is a gift. It is the opportunity to process your emotions, receive support and have someone with you to navigate difficult situations and feelings. I am a therapist that you know truly cares because you will be able to feel it. I am an excellent listener and will help make connections about your life that you may not have had the opportunity to become aware of before therapy. I am able to be a part of my clients transformational therapeutic journeys and it is an absolute honor. I am so deeply grateful that I get to do the work I do. My goal is to help you find your way to peace and to live your life exactly how you want to.
