“I am grateful for the opportunity to provide mental health care to the clients at our clinic. Collaborative and flexible in my clinical approach, I see my role as a facilitator, working alongside my clients towards self-exploration and change. I am passionate about conscious and healthy living, and frequently draw connections between physical, social, spiritual, and mental health.
