What I’m most proud of in my work with clients:
My clients tell me I make them feel safe and seen and heard. Not sure I could be prouder of anything as a counselor.
What inspires me:

I consider it an incredible honor to be witness to others’ stories. Building a safe space for people to share things, sometimes for the first time, and to see the healing that can follow those moments of vulnerability… that is what really inspires me to do what I do.

I love Marvel, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Lego – all the nerdy stuff!
