Message to clients

I provide a nurturing, safe, and non-judgmental space allowing you to work through what are the most important issue(s) in your life. Deciding to begin therapy can be difficult. I work closely with clients to ease any concerns, answer questions and ensure we progress through your goals at a comfortable pace. I employ art therapy, psychotherapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma informed techniques to help you reach life goals and explore your authentic self.

It is helpful to have clients whom are willing to explore various therapeutic paths to reach their most functional and healthy self. This process can mean remaining open minded to suggestions for healthy lifestyle changes benefiting you in the short and long term.
