Description

In my 15-year career as a Social Worker in the mental health field and a trained psychotherapist, my passion in providing therapy is to help individuals discover their inner strengths, experience self-compassion, and feelings of connection.

As a therapist, my work with you is ethically grounded in transparency, empathy, and respect. I am committed to providing clients with a warm, safe, and non-judgmental space to explore distressing issues, while also holding space to explore thought processes and underlying feelings that may be difficult to express.
