People experience challenges in their lives that are sometimes difficult to work through alone. Together we can make sense of it, and achieve a healthier, happier life. By providing a safe and empathic space, you can explore those challenges in your life.
My approach to each session is to be with you, through truly listening, providing a judgement-free environment, respectful challenge, and mutual participation throughout the therapeutic process. As a team, you and I will process the emotional, cognitive, physical, familial, and spiritual factors impacting your life, and preventing you from achieving your goals.
