About me

My experience in education has provided the perfect backdrop in preparation for working within the mental health industry.

I welcome my clients with unconditional acceptance; meeting you at the point in your unique mental health journey, within your process, and at your pace.

 

I adopt an integrative and holistic approach that acknowledges all aspects of what makes you, you. 

Having been through the process myself, I understand how intimidating it can be at first, but I do encourage you to make this investment in yourself.

 

I am present, focused and unwavering in my dedication to help you reach your therapeutic goals.
