My goal for therapy is to create a warm and nonjudgmental environment where you can feel encouraged to gain awareness of yourself. I enjoy working creatively to promote self-growth, self-acceptance, and develop meaningful relationships. My hope is that you will feel valued, seen, and encouraged as we navigate through life’s challenges.
