In her own words:
It is my intention to host a safe, non-judgmental space to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Together we can look at what may be keeping you from a more peaceful life and a more loving connection to yourself and others. I work with clients on tools and strategies to help with symptom reduction as we explore the roots of these symptoms and learn what you need for a deeper level of healing. Ultimately, it is the therapeutic relationship that often creates the “corrective emotional experience.” What an honor it is to be part of that. From my time with clients I have learned the importance of hosting a healing space and meeting someone exactly where they are in their journey. I have seen the incredible impact early attachment has on our current relationships and the pain, loneliness and shame that addiction and substance abuse can trigger. I have witnessed the havoc the unconscious can create in our lives and much, much more. I continue to be humbled and surprised by this work and I am grateful that discovery will never end.
