Message to clients

Starting this process is a big step and finding the right person to connect with is important to working through the many challenges we face in life.

There will be times you will feel angry, frustrated, sad, happy, or any other emotion that makes us human. You are not alone. I believe that our work together can be effective based on our connection, honesty, and vulnerability. There will be challenges but my hope is that we will explore this space together in a safe, supportive and non judgemental environment. I look forward to meeting with you.
