Message to clients

I work with you to guide you towards self-awareness through what you actually want in your life based on meaning and values. This helps us to identify actions pivoting towards the life you want to lead. During the first session, I get to understand what is motivating you to start therapy at this time and the goals you want to focus on moving forward. I generally provide practical interventions for you to use in your daily experiences to actively work towards your goals in between sessions as well.
