Now is the time to take control of your emotions. Finding yourself in a vulnerable state or struggling with situations in your life is normal. What is not normal is feeling you don't have an emotional outlet. This can cause you to become overly anxious or depressed and cause you difficulties in accessing appropriate coping mechanisms.
Over the years, I have been able to help clients improve their motivations and have assisted them with conquering their depression and anxieties that have lead to low self esteem and difficulties with their communication. As a therapist, it is my mission to help you feel understood and supported. I will help you navigate through roadblocks that can leave you feeling alone and overwhelmed. I hope to work alongside you and empower you to take back control of your life and attain your goals.
