About Me

Hi there! I currently live in Paris, and see clients who are posted here with the government, as well as provide teletherapy for people living in VA. Clients describe me as warm, casual and say that they like that I call them on stuff. I think it's most important that I have a profound respect for anyone brave enough to work on their stuff, and truly enjoy sitting with someone to work on things that have impacted their life.
