It is an amazing opportunity to provide therapy via tele-health. I commend you for reaching the decision to come to therapy. I hope to help you on this journey towards healing.
Personal experience is the reason I became a social worker. As I watched family members struggle with mental illness and find someone who cared, who would listen and advocate I found my passion in life. Really listening to people and helping them navigate through the difficult times has been my greatest mission. It is my hope to provide you with compassion and understanding because you matter.
I heard it say that people come into our life for a reason. As I found myself on the receiving end of a therapy couch I discovered that there are two types of people; those in therapy and those that should be in therapy. Helping eliminate the stigma of mental health is of utmost importance. I hope to be a person who enters another persons life for the better. Working together to help you be your best self.

My journey to becoming a therapist started on a personal level. It was through my own work in therapy that I decided to be on the other side as the one helping others. I approach therapy using a strength based, non judgmental and goal setting. Sliding scale available Payment via Venmo @Meghan-Soeiro
