Message to clients

Therapy is an opportunity for clarity and improvement. Not many people get the opportunity to work on and improve themselves, so that’s why I am here, to help guide you through your experience. I genuinely love what I do, which makes me the person for you. I am your teammate during your journey towards succeeding in your goals. Not your partner’s goals, not your parent’s goals, and not your friend’s goals, your goals! Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and trauma can consume someone’s life and if you're tired of feeling consumed and ready to do the appropriate work necessary, then I am here to help you.

Working with women, men, and children I learned what most people need is just someone to listen. I am trained to assist you in applying the appropriate skills that will support you in becoming an expert in yourself. I am also EMDR trained, together we can work on breath work and stretching, healing the body, mind, and soul.

I am here to validate you, challenge you, and help you grow into the person you want to be. I believe you possess natural strengths that may be hiding now and in time I can help you reveal them and apply them to your daily life.
