About Me

Life is a journey filled with ups and downs. Learning to get through life's anxieties, whether it be relationship issues, work stress, or any other life transition can feel daunting but reaching out for help can also feel scary. It takes a lot of courage to show up and take this step towards a healing path. I believe that forging a compassionate and non-judgemental relationship is crucial for growth to take place. Each individual is different so I try to tailor my approach to fit a persons needs drawing from the various techniques I have been trained in.
