Hi, I'm Celeste (she/her)

I am an attachment-based therapist using the emotionally focused therapy modality. I feel that in order to heal, we must go more deeply into ourselves and build stronger attachments with those closest to us. 

I aspire to provide a safe place for clients to be vulnerable and develop stronger attachment bonds while knowing that I will hold and make space during those brave and vulnerable moments. 

I am friendly and non-judgmental towards all people including being affirmative towards LGBTQIA+ members, affirming first responders including police and military members, is faith-based friendly, and strives to be culturally sensitive and aware towards all. Let me know how best to respect you as I am open to learning from all. 

Fun Facts: I am not very good at bowling but I absolutely love doing it. I am actually part of a social league! In my downtime I love to crochet and have been doing it for about a decade.
