Message to clients

My goal is to make you feel 100% comfortable when you come and see me. I want you to be able to utilize this time for yourself. I want you to feel like you can go home and have a short-term, mini goal to work on throughout the week, and even if it’s difficult, I want you to be able to come back to me and say ‘You know what, I didn’t do it.’ Or, ‘It was really hard’ or ‘I didn’t make time for myself,’ and that’s okay. This is a judgement free zone and it’s all about you.
