Message to clients

Going to therapy can be very difficult and even scary. It can be challenging to not only find a therapist that you connect with, but also a therapist that you deeply trust. As a therapist, I do my best to create a space for you to feel safe and heard. It takes courage to open up and be vulnerable with another person. I am honored to be a person that can hold this gentle space as you explore who you are and who you would like to be in the world.

I welcome traveling with you on your healing journey. I look forward to hearing about your world and how I may be a place of support for you.
