About

Are you a woman who's got what you always wanted but find that it doesn't make you happy? Are you in a relationship but struggling to feel connected now that the honeymoon period is over? My clients often feel this way. Both my individual and couple clients often compare themselves to others and struggle with perfectionism. They tend to feel frustrated they haven't achieved more and worry that their lives or their relationships will never be all they’d hoped for. They can also be quite self-critical or have a tendency to people pleasing. Some also experience anxiety or depression on a regular basis. Does that sound familiar?
My clients learn to treat themselves with kindness & compassion while growing a stronger sense of self. In addition, my couple clients learn specific skills to get better at communicating their needs and engaging in conflict. They also learn how to strengthen their friendship and create an atmosphere in which their relationship can thrive.
I won't try to dianose or fix you, neither will I try to make you 'normal'. I value your uniqueness and will meet you where you are. You'll have strengths you might not even be aware of that can help you move forward from here, regardless of whether you're an individual client or in a couple. In the process, you'll find more ease, calm, hope & contentment.
