I believe that change occurs through a compassionate and trusting therapeutic relationship. I recognize the importance of exploring negative patterns that pose as barriers in achieving balanced and fulfilling lives. I aim to have clients feel appropriately challenged and nurtured, as I believe clients enter therapy to address emotional burdens and break cycles of internal struggling. This allows us to develop strategies to build meaningful relationships moving forward. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than witnessing the transformation that occurs when clients feel empowered and supported to navigate difficult emotions and tackle their problems.
