My approach to developing a therapeutic relationship is genuine, honest, collaborative and non-judgmental. I aim to provide a safe space for my clients to help them feel comfortable exploring the challenges they encounter. I understand that it can be overwhelming to seek therapy and I help my clients learn the tools to communicate their thoughts and feelings and to cope with emotional distress. It is essential that my clients feel understood and supported with whatever they are experiencing. I strongly believe in the power of human connection and empathy, and I am very passionate about helping my clients feel empowered and motivated to live a life that is authentic. I recognize that each client that I work with is unique and deserves treatment that is tailored to meet their own specific needs wherever they are at.
