I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.  Therapy is important for clients because this may be the only place they can really be free and be heard. I make my client feel important and let them know their feelings matter. I create an environment that is warm and inviting. I make sure to allow my client to have their space to breathe and be in the moment with their thoughts and feelings. I help my client to understand that the counseling process is not about me telling them what to do, but allowing them to gain insight to what is going on in their world and become a better version of themselves
