Personal Statement
I know starting this process can be daunting and takes courage. I believe everyone has the ability to change and grow. I am here to support you and take things one step at a time. I strive to create an environment where clients are able to be their authentic selves free of pressure or judgment. Trust, sensitivity, unconditional positive regard, empowerment, and empathy are at the core of my practice so that each client may feel completely safe in their most challenging and vulnerable moments. I help clients learn healthy coping skills, restructure negative thinking, build confidence within themselves and their relationships, and feel empowered and balanced in their lives.
