Mind Garden

A common metaphor for our mental health is that of tending to a garden. Our self-care, thoughts, and habits are reflected in the seeds and plants that we have watered and nurtured. What we water will grow. We learn to cultivate mindfulness, care, and patience to our growth process. Just like plants and flowers, we don’t bloom overnight. This is our mind garden. 

Your Healing Journey

Starting therapy can feel intimidating. My focus is to help guide you through this process by providing a warm, supportive, and nonjudgmental safe space to allow you to be your authentic self, and create a genuine connection. I'm so proud of you for making the first step toward your personal growth and willingness to begin your healing journey. I'm humbled to be a part of your journey, and look forward to getting to know you.

I am also known as @MindgardenTherapist
