Message to clients

Feeling sad or anxious is a natural part of life, but navigating these challenges alone can be daunting. I'm here to provide you with the support you need as we tackle your struggles together. Opening up about personal experiences can be difficult, but I'll ensure we proceed at a pace that feels comfortable for you, and confidentiality is always paramount.

Clients often describe me as validating, goal-oriented, and personable. In our initial session, you'll have the opportunity to share what's on your mind, while I create a warm and validating space to explore the underlying factors. If necessary, I'll equip you with interventions to utilize between sessions. I'm eager to embark on this journey with you!
