    What makes me different:
    I aim to nurture a strong therapeutic alliance that encourages clients to delve deeper into their inner experiences and gain insights into their motivations, values, and aspirations. My goals for sessions include helping clients recognize and challenge self-limiting beliefs and behaviors and take ownership of their personal growth journey. My hope is to empower clients to embrace change, take meaningful action, and cultivate resilience with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.
