Message to clients

I've always been a "caretaker" for as long as I can remember. However, as I got older, I realized taking care of others was a trauma response to not properly address past trauma in my life. In other words, I was great at taking care of others but when it came to my own life, I was lacking. It wasn't until I discovered therapy that I finally addressed my past trauma and understood how important a great therapist is. When you don't take care of yourself first, it is very difficult to continue to take care of others.

I want to offer a safe therapeutic environment for my clients where they can feel heard, supported, and validated. It's important for my clients to know that I care about them and am truly invested so they know they matter. Looking back on my own therapeutic journey, the therapists that stuck out to me were the ones that showed a genuine interest in my personal journey.
