I love people and I love building relationships. I am passionate about helping people to understand how they have been impacted by past events and to feel empowered that change and healing is possible. I have always felt led to have grace with people whose behaviors are off-putting to others, because we all learn to survive the environment we were raised in and won't know a different way until they have a safe place to process. I love being that safe place for people.
I have struggled with anxiety and I have had to work through difficult childhood events. I know that healing is possible and that we can thrive in adulthood, no matter our past, as long as we have the right support.
I listen, and I also love to teach. I believe there is a time to listen and a time to provide psychoeducation. I find a balance between both.
