Hello! Thanks for stopping by!
I’ve always aimed to create a warm & nurturing environment in my work with clients so they can feel at ease. I believe in new paths for clients, opportunities to explore & create ways forward. I am so thankful for the input in my own life from other therapists & team players & believe in passing on & reinforcing that connection.
