Message to clients

I am so honored to be able to work with people who voluntarily want to change their situation toward better mental health. It can be very difficult to talk about difficult pasts and I encourage you to begin to "treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping" (Jordan Peterson).

therapy is designed to create a space for people to be who they are without judgment and it is my goal to help you understand yourself better and learn the skills to improve your life.
