My goal through is to break barriers that plague your access to mental health services. I know that access to services in some areas is limited- therefore I am offering consistent online sessions through a secure video platform to meet your needs and the needs of your busy schedule. I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment that helps you to feel supported in your effort to grow and connect with your strengths.
