"I know that seeking out therapy takes an incredible amount of courage. It is never easy to talk about things that makes us feel vulnerable. I truly admire the bravery of any person who sits in the client's chair even once. My goal is to create an environment in which you feel comfortable, cared for, and safe. You are valuable and you matter. Whatever you are seeking therapy for will be the most important thing in the world in our room. I am excited to meet you and help in which ever way I can."
