Her Inspiration:

I am inspired by my clients’ willingness to embrace anxiety, build resiliency, and adopt a growth mindset. While uncertainty and change can provoke anxiety and avoidance, I have partnered with clients to achieve goals they previously thought were unattainable by adapting to challenges and overcoming obstacles to create positive transformation.
