Teletherapy, although been around for the last ten years has not been as accessible as it is now. This new landscape will allow others to not have to wait 3 weeks to get an appointment but can have a quicker response than traditional in office visits. This allows the client to be in the comfort of their own environment which can be less daunting than an in person visit.
I am a partner on a journey towards your happiness. I take cues from the client, challenge thoughts of self and others and find a perspective that is prosperous for the client's well-being. I work from a place of compassion and empathy in helping other discover their own idea of happiness.
