She has experienced great post traumatic growth in her life and is passionate to help others make positive and life-long changes. She hopes to help her clients shed light on their trauma/s in a way that is compassionate and trauma-informed and that allows vulnerability; not only in session but in the client’s relationships with others and self. She firmly believes that a deeper level of healing can be obtained when we discover and show up as our authentic selves.
