Are you feeling overwhelmed, withdrawn, or more irritable? Is it starting to affect your relationships? Or, do know something is just not right and you can’t quite put your finger on it? I’m here to listen and help. When working with clients, my goal is to create a safe environment for you to share your story and explore your challenges. You are the expert of you and I want to help you discover your skills and strengths. Along with teaching you to ways to manage your thoughts, feelings, and reactions. I strive to help clients be more accountable in their lives in order to better manage their challenges.
