Message to clients

Psychological autonomy enacts a self-reflective way of being, centering on the examination and reflective awareness of personal desires, wishes and intentions. The exploration of how one's mind, emotions, and behaviors have been influenced by their life experiences allows for the possibly of freedom of choice and agency.

I will accompany you on your journey of self discovery in an effort to live more authentically. The past cannot be changed. However, the exploration and understanding of your past can help you to understand your thinking, feelings, and behaviors, as well as to meet the current challenges in your life.
