“Being in therapy is an opportunity for each person to have a safe space to be heard and understood – to have a space to figure out what works and what doesn’t in their life while at the same time hopefully gaining skills and support to reach their goals. It is a privilege for me to be part of my client’s journey as therapy is a collaborative, creative process.”
