I strive to incorporate my knowledge and clinical practice experience into my work with clients. My belief is that our experiences early in life shape how we learn to manage challenges and can often impact our lives well into adulthood. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for my clients. I look forward to assisting you on your journey.
