Message to clients

No more feeling uncomfortable. We all struggle from time to time. Whether it be life stressors, past / present relationships, current events, they all impact us mentally and emotionally. I want to help you normalize those emotions by creating a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere where you can develop the confidence and skills you need to reach your mental health / life goals. I understand that taking this new step can be overwhelming and I am hoping to make this transition as relaxing as possible for you.

My passion and intention is to help you reach your mental health / life goals by providing an integrative, warm, direct, compassionate, and empathetic environment. I offer a safe place to be heard, respected and understood. I am here and ready for you as you embark on this therapeutic journey.
