“Starting therapy can be a difficult decision, but hopefully it will be a choice that will hopefully foster positive change and feelings in your life. It is my goal to make my clients feel welcome and at ease while challenging them throughout the process, as needed, to reach their goals and acquire stability in their lives.” – Christine Hernandez
