Over the past 10 years, from the support of my therapist, I have experienced healing through the process of sharing my story and allowing myself to be seen. That is why I do this work- I SO believe in therapy and the healing that can come from sharing your story with another and doing the heroic work of looking inward in order to create lasting change.
I believe that you can move from feelings of overwhelm and worry to a place of calm and safety. You can move from feeling stuck to finding freedom. From feeling alone to connectedness.
Im here to help guide you and support you as we work to re-discover and strengthen your ability to trust yourself and to live the life that you desire.
