What would I say to someone considering therapy or counseling for the first time?
Making the first step to come to therapy is the hardest and I’m proud of you for making the jump! I’m here to hold space and provide support while also empowering you to make the changes or choices you want to make. I’m here to listen empathetically and non-judgmentally!
What I like to do for fun:
I love to box, read, hike, and go to the lake. I also enjoy taking my dog, Walter, on adventures.
