Therapy is a very personal experience, and I want everyone who comes to me for help to know they’re accepted for who they are. I will unconditionally see the best in you, even if you are having a hard time doing that yourself. Since you know yourself best, I offer guidance for where you want to grow. We all have patterns that served us at one point or another, those patterns may not benefit you anymore but you’re not quite sure how to unlearn them yet. These patterns are anchored in our mind and body, but it is possible to amend them. My goal is to support you while healing those old wounds because it can be tough and seem impossible to do alone. Working together we can encourage helpful thoughts and actions to strengthen your well-being. I provide empathy, motivation, and inspiration to reshape your whole self. Let’s get started… together!
