Message to clients

Thank you for exploring my profile and for taking the courageous step toward seeking help with your challenges. I wholeheartedly believe in the transformative power of therapy to guide individuals through their struggles and nurture their personal growth. When I meet a new client, I start with the assumption that they possess inner strengths and resources, often yet to be fully recognized. If you've embarked on the journey of finding the right counselor, navigated through inquiries, phone calls, emails, and scheduling, and still arrive with a readiness to be vulnerable and seek assistance, you've already demonstrated admirable qualities such as persistence, humility, curiosity, responsibility, and hope.

Whether or not you decide to work with me, I want to honor your commitment to self-improvement through counseling. I envision a world where everyone has accessible and affordable therapy, leading to reduced suffering, improved relationships, more fulfilling work, and stronger family and community bonds. Your choice to invest in your healing and personal growth is a meaningful step toward contributing to the well-being of humanity's shared struggles and challenges.

Remember, even if you are the sole beneficiary of therapy, you are unquestionably deserving of it. Your well-being is invaluable, and investing in your mental health is a testament to your self-worth.
