“I sincerely value the process of therapy as it has significantly changed my life allowing me peace, stability and a greater sense of self. Growing up with childhood trauma affected my adult life as well as my childhood. I struggled in my relationships where I lacked intimacy, stability and vulnerability. I was challenged with emotional dysregulation and lack of valuable coping schools in order to create boundaries and implement self care practices. The therapeutic relationship allowed me the sacred space I needed to heal. I am passionate about this process and enjoy working with clients on their journey to well being.”
