I know first-hand the limiting nature of anxiety and phobias. Through this shared experience, I bring empathy, authenticity and creativity to my work. I am inspired by my clients’ personal growth, increased confidence and their expanding opportunities after they develop grit, courage and resiliency with treatment.
