What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

As a therapist, I approach each client with love and understanding, recognizing your individual strengths and resources. I am here to support and accompany you on your journey towards healing and growth, providing a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore and process your experiences. Expect to be held with a gentle, attuned presence that follows your lead and moves at your pace. I do not believe in pressuring you to give up your coping strategies, substance abuse, depression, or face their traumas before they you are ready. Instead, I support you in achieving your own physical and emotional health goals. I meet you unconditionally at your current stage of change, and we go from there.
