"I am committed to a career that gives back to the community and works in helping people become the best they can be. I believe in the capacity of the human spirit to heal from life’s challenges and trauma. I want you to have a nonjudgemental place to process your strengths and focus on self-compassion. Striving to help you feel valued and treated as a whole, respected individual is a priority to me. I believe each struggle you face has shaped you into the person you are today and you will look back on this time and see the beauty in what you've been through and what you’ve achieved because of it. I will engage with you to help find answers that will make your life more fulfilling and positive."
