"If you cant see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer because there’s something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit" - Shane Koyczan

Hey there!

The way that I choose to work with individuals is that everyone is an individual and not everyone lives their lives through a day to day schedule. I believe in checking in and allowing you to tell me what you need and what you want.

My work is not based upon a single method of thinking or processing, but rather whatever combination you need.
