“It is my passion to listen with empathy, speak with authenticity, and lead with love. I recognize that starting therapy can often be an overwhelming process. It is my goal to ease that discomfort as much as possible in order to encourage individuals to begin their healing journey. We have an amazing team of clinicians here at Change Inc. and I can’t wait to help you get started!”
