I have extensive experience working with children and families and have a knack for creating a playful and supportive environment where kids feel comfortable to express themselves.

Strong Therapeutic Relationship

At Compassion Corner Counseling, I believe in building a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust and understanding. I place a strong emphasis on creating a safe and nonjudgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences openly.

This eclectic approach allows me to adapt to your specific needs and preferences, ensuring that our sessions are effective and relevant to your personal journey.
