Message to clients

I am confident that you will feel seen, heard and validated in our work together. Whatever you are feeling and experiencing is real and can be shared without judgement. I am always in awe of the strength and bravery that my clients show in their lives and in what they bring to our work. Being vulnerable means taking a risk - though it can also bring rewards you never thought possible! I form trusting, supportive connections with my clients, and from there amazing growth can take place.

I do hold my clients accountable and may assign "homework" between sessions to put the ideas and strategies into practice. I will give you my all during our sessions and I expect the same so we can truly see change happen! I know you can feel better and I would be honored to help you on that journey.
