“The one who plants trees, knowing that he will never sit in their shade, has at least started to understand the meaning of life.” ― Rabindranath Tagore

As a counselor I like to accompany my clients on their journey through life and serve as a compass. Much like my quote above, I believe in planting seeds and nurturing my clients so that they can be the best and healthiest versions of their authentic selves. Throughout the therapeutic experience we will build autonomy, explore wants and needs, explore boundaries, reveal undesired behavior patterns, and sustain change. Ultimately, my hope is that you leave your experience with me as a healthier version of yourself. I would be honored to hear your story and share in this experience with you.
