About Me

My therapeutic process will provide a safe space, free of judgement, where you can remove the mask you may wear around others and be your true, authentic self. I will create an environment where you feel comfortable to dive into uncharted territories that you may have been scared to enter before. The unknown can be your greatest freedom.
