My Approach to Helping

The best aspect of this job is getting to know my clients. I seek to develop a relationship and environment that creates a sense of comfort and compassion, along with the confidence in each other to have an atmosphere that fosters change and development.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Nobody is perfect. Nobody's life is perfect. I think what got me into wanting to be a therapist is that I know what it's like to struggle, to have lecturers instead of listeners, and to strive to be better. This is not to say that since I have healed, I know how you should heal. Just the opposite, actually. I know that you are the expert in your own values, thoughts, and emotions. I am just a therapeutic lens.
