All walks of life are welcome. I strive to provide a therapeutic environment that is judgment free, whole-hearted, and completely focused on you; that recognizes and supports who you truly are and will be.

We all go through painful experiences, sometimes way more than we can handle in one lifetime. We can become lost and forget that being human is about more than survival. We doubt ourselves, lose sight of our bravery, intelligence, and how incredible we actually are. We forget that there is a SELF in there and that it is the only one on earth. It’s a brilliant, limitless, generous, wise, tough and tender self.
