I know what it's like to be so busy going through life feeling isolated, with no one to trust with your struggles, traumas, stressors, etc. You may even be looking for purpose in the midst of overwhelm, stress and even complete burn out. I know that between work-life, home-life, parenting, relationships, side business, etc., etc., life can get rough and you're only one person. I've been there before and that's why my goal is to support you in creating and re-establishing balance in your personal life and at work. I know you're busy trying to stay afloat, with not much time to catch your breath. So let me help you with that...

How are you doing? How are the people in your life doing? Sometimes, we wish that the answer to the second question didn't have an effect on the first, but it does. I believe that relationships are a key component to our ability to thrive- whether it's romantic, platonic, or the relationship you have with yourself. You'd be surprised how often the biggest stressors in our lives are associated with the relationships we have with our partners, our families, or within ourselves.

When we are better able to approach various aspects of life, nurture healthy relationships, make progress in school or at work, we feel good. My approach is to help clients add to their existing positive coping skills in order to decrease distress, fortify resilience, and uplift awareness of healthier ways of solving problems.

I work with women struggling with their own secrets; the kind that burn a hole in the heart and soul. Women who know they're in pain, confused, or deeply challenged by their emotions or lack of balance in their lives. They may not have close friends or a strong, supportive or local family, and sometimes feel like outsiders, alienated, or like no one understands them. I often work with self-proclaimed "empaths", "introverts", caregivers, or women who isolate themselves for a variety of reasons. I help women who seek self compassion and want to know self love. We'll uncover your strengths, your true self, and empower you to heal.

Some mental health providers disagree, but, I do believe we have the power to choose our emotions. Watch, I'll show you - I couple evidenced-based treatments, wellness perspectives, Eastern theories, a conscious awareness approach - geared towards creating intrinsic & extrinsic progress. Your progress may include improved relationships, increased motivation, stronger sense of self-value, greater career & academic success, a reduction of painful & distressful emotions/unwanted behaviors. Full Disclosure: my therapy style is very assertive. I'll say things like "Yes, your feelings are valid - & so?" "That doesn't mean they serve you".

I strive to assist people to build on their strengths and resources to achieve change in their lives. I believe healing is holistic, and I incorporate both mind and body. I use EMDR and talk therapy to identify negative core beliefs that keep people stuck. I also incorporate mindfulness and grounding techniques when needed, as I believe that creating safety in the body is also essential.

To put it simply, I love people. And what inspires me as a therapist is the opportunity to serve others through authentic connection and collaborative insight into clients' thoughts, feelings and actions. While drawn to cognitive behavioral and Mindfulness interventions, for me, providing a safe, warm and open relational component is key. Whether working with couples, individual adults or adolescents, and issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, or sexuality, intimacy and interpersonal functioning, it is a privilege to hold your confidence and assist you in your journey towards integration and wellness.
