As a practitioner, I take a holistic approach in working with my clients. I believe that an individuals’ mental health, physical health, and emotional health are all vital components to a persons’ overall well-being. My goal is to create a calm and comforting working relationship with my clients, in order to instill trust and confidence in the work we do together. I aim to provide a collaborative, inclusive, and non-judgmental space for clients to grow. My overarching philosophy is that we are all in it together and it is our connectedness that makes us whole.
