Together we will work side by side to help strengthen your confidence, awareness, insight, healing, and make progress within yourself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that our relationship, our sense of self is the foundation for overcoming any obstacles that we face in our life. It's important to befriend, to confront, to face our own selves. We can be our best friend, and even our worst enemy. I believe in helping others build an understanding about not only themselves, their identity, their relationships, and the relationship they have with sex. I believe taking time to get to know ourselves physically and internally is important. Getting to know the relationships we have with food, with our bodies. I believe in supporting, encouraging, and empowering you. I view mental health just as important as physical health. When an injury/illness occurs, seeking professional intervention, guidance, and support can improve overall wellness.
