"The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it.  It's our fear of the dark that casts our joy into the shadows" (Brené Brown).  Throughout the therapeutic process, I aim to foster a sense of safety and security - to help you navigate through the darkness and reclaim the light that exists within you.  It is an honor to support and walk alongside you in your journey of emotional healing, self-exploration, and growth.
