Congratulations! You have decided to take on a new journey in life, one that will be the most rewarding decision that you were probably hesitant to make. Get ready to work on your peace of mind! Life can be challenging, but don’t worry! You’ll come out stronger. We will work as a TEAM as you are introduced to your new and POSITIVE LIFESTYLE or perhaps a life that you would like to regain again.
As your therapist, I will work with you towards your goals so that we may began your journey to healing, self-identification, supportive growth and encouragement. Don’t forget! I’m human just like you! With that being said, it’s important that you feel comfortable and know that I am not judgmental and that you can always openly discuss your fears and concerns with me.
My goal for my clients is to help them to achieve a level of understanding about any challenges they are facing while providing them with the tools necessary to resolve them in a realistic and positive manner. You will have developed beneficial coping mechanisms and new ways to process your thoughts! You will see that I passionately believe in Positive self-talk and a healthy self-esteem.
