That’s why I strive to create a warm, empathetic, and judgment-free space in therapy. Together, we’ll explore your emotions and thoughts freely, finding meaningful solutions and making sense of your experiences.

I have found this integration to be highly effective, as it allows us to gain insight into clients’ histories while employing techniques aimed at facilitating change.
