Within each of us there is an inner wisdom, a guiding compass. Difficult life experiences or traumatic events can disconnect us from our inner knowing, our true selves. My expertise as a therapist is in guiding my clients to acknowledge, move through and release their pain from the past and reconnect with their authentic selves.
