My hope is that by reading the content below, you will get to know a little bit about me and what it would be like to work together.
I am an empathetic listener, a naturally positive spirit, a believer in people, and a champion for the authentic self - I trust in your ability to heal.
I am passionate about a lot of things, foremost of which is helping people live more authentically and wholeheartedly, with courage, presence and resilience. Behind everything I do lays one firmly held belief: there is nothing wrong with any of us and no one is broken. Every single person has the capacity to heal—and I am here to help you do just that.
My passion for healing really began with my own journey. I found myself struggling with trauma, personal challenges, and relationships - and it took years of falling, learning to get back up, and while persevering through my own healing journey, I realized that I can truly help others overcome their struggles too. My inspiration led me to start training as a therapist to help people in the midst of their own challenges. To me, helping people means finding solutions solutions together and equipping you with tools to create true, lasting change.
What I Believe In
I believe in a modern, positive, authentic approach to therapy that truly understands that every person is unique. We each have our own journeys, histories, relationships, and struggles - and I believe we also have the strength and resilience we need to get through any challenge. Every person has the capacity to heal - by helping you live authentically and wholeheartedly, my mission is to guide you to the healing innate in you.
My Approach To Therapy
I believe in connecting to people with compassion and empathy. When you’re in your downs and ups, I’ll be there through whatever journey you find yourself on. Your comfort is something I truly prioritize, and I strive to create a safe space for you to share your feelings, collaborate on your goals, and achieve the change your inner self knows it deserves.
