What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?

It is important to me that my client feels comfortable and safe to open up.

Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?

I believe I’m a non biased, non judgmental, safe space for my client as they manage their problems.

What drives your passion for seeing clients?

What drives my passion for seeing clients is knowing I can make a difference in someone’s life. I enjoy helping people and seeing the changes in mindset and behavior is very rewarding to me.

How do you believe clients "get better"?

I believe clients “get better” if they put in the work towards their best selves. As a therapist, I am encoured to support them but therapy is most effective when the client applies the skills and coping techniques that they learn.
