My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We all have a unique story. I invite you to share your story with me. You are safe to be your authentic self. I ask you to explore those elements which collectively make you who you are. Because I invite you to be real with me, I pledge to be real with you. When you feel safe to be you, the real work can begin. You'll find I believe in comfort over fashion as I'm typically wearing jeans and sitting with my feet propped on a small ottoman (partly because I'm short, but it's also comfy). I encourage you to get comfortable as well, making your space your own! You'll also learn I use humor in my sessions, knowing laughter is sometimes the best medicine. I'm also transparent, so what you see is what you get. You'll never wonder what I think because I'll tell you.I'm honored to be a part of your journey towards healing, growth, and self-empowerment.
