What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Clients can expect in my first session a supportive nonjudgemental space so they can feel comfortable expressing their needs. I enjoy helping clients gain awareness of their presenting problem in order to make the most healthy and holistic decisions for themselves and their situations. I look forward to the opportunity to support you and empower you to live a happier and more complete life.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I feel my greatest strength are having compassion, patience and understanding towards others.
