About

Anxiety is ruining your life. You are smart, competent, and lovable, but every day is a struggle to trust that this is true. The "shoulds" and "what-ifs" pile up before the first cup of coffee, draining you of energy and stealing your joy. It's time to turn the table on anxiety. You deserve the support and guidance it takes to feel stronger, lighter, clearer, and more excited about your life. You've tried doing this alone. Now it's time to get help. Let's talk. Call me for your first 20-minute discovery at no charge. The first step in the direction you want to go.
My passion is accompanying women and adolescent girls on their journey from anxiety, depression, and self-doubt to lives filled with more meaning, laughter, and self-acceptance. I offer a unique combination of therapeutic approaches to support insight and growth, including (but not limited to) time spent mindfully with horses and in nature.
As women in our culture, we face many subtle and not-so subtle pressures to conform. Anxiety and depression have a way of waking us up to the ways in which we have strayed from our true nature. It takes courage to sit with our anxiety and depression long enough to learn the lessons they hold. Do not suffer alone.
