    I treat clients looking for relief from daily stressors, need support through life transitions, are working through a traumatic experience, or more need of intensive therapy . To assist clients with complex emotional and mental health issues, I use an individualized process to create change and growth in their life. My approach is tailored for each person’s specific and unique needs. I believe in integrating traditional psychotherapy techniques with practices like meditation, body awareness, mindfulness, and breath-work. I will guide you in unlocking your inner healing abilities to find peace and happiness. We will share a safe environment and connect to the mind, body, and soul to bring growth to yourself and relationships.
