What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It’s important for my clients to feel safe, seen, and supported. My hope is that they can let go and show up as they are.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
I’m there to support clients through healing, growth, and self-discovery. Ultimately, the client is responsible for change but I’m there to support and help catalyze the changes they desire.
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
I was drawn to this field through my own personal journey and have witnessed the rippling effects of overall better health outcomes. It’s a privilege for me to be involved in this transformative process with my clients.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
I believe it happens when they truly get to know themselves, it’s a lifelong endeavor. “Getting better” is a progression, and each time clients are faced with a challenge they can respond from a different place than they did previously.

I love spending time in nature, connecting with others, learning, and travelling. Usually this will mean dancing, yoga, and sharing a meal with my family and friends.
