In my practice I will create a safe space and help guide you to explore yourself and the challenges in your life. I believe that you guide the sessions, as much as I do and together we will create an environment to learn about who you are, where you are and where you want to go.
As we explore the challenges you are facing, you will come to accept your challenges and the emotions that you are experiencing. You will learn how to cope with these challenges and empower yourself to make changes in your life. We will recognize that emotions are meant to be felt and as we understand where the emotions are coming from, you can begin to make sense of them. We want to feel empowered and to enjoy the life we are living.
