A few words from Noelle:
"Life can sometimes be unbearably confusing or difficult. My aim in therapy is to provide clients with a safe environment to explore both life's challenges and joys. The best therapeutic relationships embody a sense of non-judgment, empathy, and support.While our unique life experiences have been undoubtedly different, I want you to know that I understand what it is like to feel broken & overwhelmed.I’m not here to place judgement or tell you what to do. I want to stand by your side as you engage in your journey towards wellness and a sense of feeling more grounded.Therapeutically, I utilize an integrative combination of person-centered, existential, and multicultural theories, along with a collaborative approach. Together, we can create a unique, supportive therapeutic experience specifically catered to your individual needs.When I am not focusing on my studies and development as a therapist, I enjoy spending time outdoors, crafting, reading, cooking & tasting new foods, traveling, and spending time with my dog, two cats, breaded dragon and girlfriend."
