I have assisted individuals with anxiety, depression, trauma, parenting challenges, domestic violence, sexual and physical abuse, relationship issues, traumatic brain injury, autism, ADHD, attachment and addiction issues, and those who were born addicted learning how to maneuver life challenges.
I believe strongly in relationships, supporting and encouraging the essence of safety and security as I work with an individual and the issues challenging them.

Bridget is easy to talk to, doesn't interrupt and I don't feel like I'm being judged. I feel very comfortable sharing my issues and she has given me helpful information and worksheets to give extra insight and tools. I'm so happy I took the plunge and now wish I did it sooner.
