What are the benefits of seeing me?

I believe that if I am the right one for you, then there will be benefits. I am aware that not all will be right with me and I am ok with that. It is important to find that connection with your professional the sit well within your self.

I have been told that I am real, persistent and upfront. The strengths are within yourself and for me it is about me walking beside you in your journey, offering support, guidance different perspectives. This is your journey so is your choices.

My passion is about building our self awareness, strengths, knowing that you are enough. I enjoy working with anger, self awareness, self care.

My journey has been around trauma, mental health, and addiction.

I am not going to write a big long spill about what I can offer, because its about you, touch base see how it feels and go from there.
