What makes you different as a provider? My personal journey impacts the ways I show up as a professional. I recognize the importance of self-disclosure when appropriate/helpful, along with being especially mindful of allowing my clients to guide the process, rather than proclaiming the have the “solution”.

How would you describe your family? My family is extraordinarily supportive of the work I do, as well as offering me the space to decompress, laugh, evaluate my needs and work towards common goals. This was not always my experience in relationships and therefore I’m especially grateful.
