“As we go on your journey to healing, it is important to me that you experience a nonjudgmental, safe space as we explore your underlying needs, values, and past experiences that influence how you want to connect with others and approach life. Whatever desires and goals you want out of life, I will work with you, collaboratively, and tailor my approach to your unique self.”
