“The journey of life is ever-changing in nature; thus, we often find ourselves in unexpected places. When the going gets tough, there’s always an opportunity to take an alternative route. The path less traveled may be littered with uncertainty requiring a great deal of courage and personal integrity. With this courage, I will walk beside you to help you develop strategies for coping and positive change. You’ll find the opportunity to speak your truth, while giving words to your thoughts, feelings, and memories. Throughout this journey, I’m committed to providing a safe and supportive space, conducive to inner growth and fulfillment.”
