Life’s hurdles are unexpected and frustrating to deal with in a society that expects we shoulder them without flinching. These past two years have not helped most in regards to relationships and how we view ourselves. Maybe you know what you need to do to get past your self-view, a toxic relationship, a past trauma. Maybe you are unsure at this point – either way – keeping your thoughts in isolation only breeds discontent, which can trickle into every facet of our lives until we cannot remember what our “best-self” looked like. I would be happy and privileged to be a blank canvas for you to spill out your frustration, joy, grief, sadness.

Not much is solved in isolation. I will be a great asset for you to explore your depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma. I currently counsel under the lens of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy to help re-write narratives and use a person-centered approach to ensure that our sessions are as flexible as what we are thinking and feeling about.
