Life is a river of rushing rapids and tranquil ponds, each providing new experiences and perspectives. The older I get the more I learn about the importance of adapting to change, working through road blocks, and healing ourselves. This increases our love for who we are, the joy we experience, and the happiness in our lives.
I am grateful for my natural ability to connect with people. I believe that relationship and connection are valuable things. In a therapeutic setting, these create an environment for healing, growth, and genuine exploration. I appreciate the opportunity to create a space to help people become better humans. As humans we all make mistakes, that is not what is important. What is important is how we learn, grow, and develop from those mistakes.
I feel that I have a bit of a different approach to therapy, as I focus on getting unstuck rather than analyzing the problems. Enhancing our abilities to heal ourselves and take control of our lives. I enjoy finding unique ways to help people increase confidence, achieve higher goals, and feel empowered to live the life they were meant to live.
