What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love learning and growing as a therapist. I enjoy seeing my clients change and reach their goals. I love that my services and expertise help make a difference.
What makes me passionate about mental health & psychotherapy? I'm passionate about therapy because growing up I saw significant figures in my life trying to get help. I saw their frustration not finding the right type of help, or not knowing the right questions to ask. My mission as a therapist is to provide excellent researched based therapy that truly transforms individuals' thoughts and behaviors, and help them reach their full potential.
