“One of the most powerful aspects of this work is to be truly seen and heard, to be able to share the experience of hardship and suffering with another being and be met with empathy, understanding, and acceptance. Through fostering a safe and non-judgmental environment, the therapeutic relationship is built, and the healing process begins. I work to help patients return to
themselves through mending the relationship to self, gaining insight along the way into the resources and tools that will adaptively serve them in the healing journey.”
