Let's Connect (506) 560-3426
I'm here to support you virtually - from the comfort of your home - with trauma, anxiety, grief, perfectionism, life transitions, or the challenges of sports and life after sports. I aim to empower you to embrace your full potential by regaining control over your life. Together, we'll explore and overcome the depths of your negative self-beliefs, and develop healthy coping skills. While emotions may seem overwhelming, I'll help you identify, understand, process, and navigate each emotion using the mind-body connection. Remember, you're not alone—I'm here to walk alongside you every step of the way.
Enter into a comforting environment where your presence is acknowledged, your voice is heard, and your worth is recognized. Together, we will identify the root causes of your challenges and navigate any difficult emotions that arise, while providing you with tools for healing along the way. My approach is collaborative, and tailored to your goals and needs.
I get it, taking the first step towards therapy can feel scary, and I want you to know that you're not alone. Together, we'll explore your story, focus on your goals, heal, and identify the strengths and resilience within you. Send me an email or visit my website to set up a 15-minute free virtual consultation to get to know each other! FNHA-approved too.
