Message to clients

I've always had a passion to help and care for others. After my first career did not provide that at all, I pursued counseling and fell in awe of what I could do for my community. I want to be added to the faces and the numbers that others can see themselves in. Representation matters to reduce the stigma of mental health and seek help. I do not limit myself to BIPOC clients, but I want to show we are out there helping. I want ALL my clients, regardless of race, sex, gender identity, sexual identity and age, to know I am here for them. I help my clients grow and shape themselves into their true authentic and nurtured selves.
