I believe that we all have the tools within ourselves to grow and heal. Using a relational, holistic approach, I help clients discover those tools and make meaningful, authentic choices. I provide a warm, empathic, and nonjudgmental space where clients can feel open to self-exploration. Through our work together, I help clients utilize their strengths, develop insight into their struggles, and explore their values to find peace and balance within. I believe that developing self-acceptance also helps us better connect and communicate with those around us. I recognize that while the process of change can be challenging and uncertain, it is also empowering and fulfilling.
