Description of Ideal Client:

It takes such courage to share your story with others. You do everything you can to navigate the struggles in life and find that sometimes everything just isn’t enough. You are enough. You are resilient. And I’m thrilled to walk alongside you as you discover how you want to handle obstacles that illicit emotions so strong they feel impossible. Counseling can be a place where you rediscover your best, and silence the noise that distracts you from living in abundance, love, joy and peace. My ideal client is one who is ready to take those steps into healing and freedom. One who communicates his or her desires for the future and is willing to walk through the tough feelings that arise in the process.
