I believe my role is to encourage, support, and collaborate with my clients on their journey of growth and healing. My goal is to create an open, non-judgmental, empathetic, and warm setting to allow clients to feel safe to talk about difficult issues.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is based on trust and understanding. It is important to me that I work collaboratively with my clients to empower them to work through stressful situations and achieve positive outcomes in the therapeutic process. I am passionate about encouraging my clients to communicate their emotions while developing effective solutions that they can use in their own life.
