I believe that in each one of us there is a spark of life that even when the storms of life take you deeper into the darkest of places, that spark can be ignited in an environment that fosters empathy, compassion, respect, unconditional positive regard and kindness. As a therapist, I will hold the space for you and help you explore ways to heal yourself and develop some coping skills.
