"No one should hide and suffer alone. I will work with you to find the right type of therapy/remedy that uniquely works for you to help calm the storm in your mind."

- Amy Fiawornu

64 percent of any progress one makes in therapy has to do with the relationship one has with the therapist. This is why finding the right therapist is very important.

I believe you have the strength and the power to figure it all out.  I am here to help guide you to find what will work best to help calm your mind.

If you want a therapist that will patiently work with you to find what works for your unique situation then look no further to calm your mind. If you are struggling to regulate your emotions, find joy in the simple things in life, you’re impulsive with inadequate coping skills, or would like to learn more coping strategies to cope with the challenges in your life, I am willing and ready to help.
