*I believe everyone should be treated equally, fairly, and with respect.

*My goal is to provide a safe environment while helping people on their journey to healing.

*I chose this career because I know how important it is to be heard and able to trust and confide in someone who can offer support and methods to help heal when life can seem overwhelming, uncertain, and painful with often sudden unexpected changes.

*I believe everyone is unique with their own thoughts and ideas and should be treated as the individual they are.

*I want to do the best I can to allow your healing to be progressive, effective, and affordable.
