"I believe that our difficulties in life are an invitation to confront fears, challenges, and burdens. Life's difficult moments are the issues that give us pause in life or disrupt our peace. By coming to therapy, one has taken a courageous step to ask for help. Therapy helps to address and explore a life obstacle. My role as a therapist is to be with individuals by offering support, encouragement, gentle challenging, and psychoeducation. Thus, therapy creates a safe space to unpack one's burdens and to create alternatives to dealing with issues."
