HELLO!

I love to take an empowering, strengths-based, and non-judgmental approach to therapy. This sets the stage for self-acceptance, which is crucial for happiness. Therapy is all about building a supportive relationship so an individual can gain insight into aspects of their life, feel more empowered to tackle challenges, explore past and current relationships, and develop greater levels of self-acceptance, coping, and balance in life. Additionally, I believe there is no limit to what you can achieve when you have the support to realize your potential.
