About

I imagine you're here because you're feeling ready for change. It's reassuring to know it's never too late to ignite curiosity about yourself and learn how to develop secure, healthy connections to others, find relief from anxiety, depression, and stress, and handle emotional challenges more confidently. When you're struggling, it takes courage to let go of what's limiting you to make room for a fulfilling life. I can collaborate with you in the process of identifying, understanding, and reworking ineffective patterns and building new skills and behavior to create the meaningful and satisfying life experiences you desire.
With informed support, you’ll learn to respond more effectively to life's ups and downs. I can help you work through painful experiences and cope more skillfully with uncertainty, conflict, and change. Unique areas of expertise are people pleasers, excessively self-reliant, emotionally avoidant adults, and adults with histories of emotional neglect/abuse.
Making meaningful changes in your life and relationships will be challenging and uncomfortable at times, but isn't your well-being worth it? We'll create a safe space to engage vulnerably and candidly. Together we'll discover what you need to accelerate your personal growth and quickly reach the goals that are uniquely important to you.
