"My job is to interrupt you when you're stuck and get out of the way when you're in touch with your truth- and to remind you be kind to yourself. I work with people who are committed to growth. We are meant to grow throughout our entire lives. When that process is blocked or interrupted, we suffer. And yet, the way in which we suffer can be an opportunity to flourish in ways we hadn't imagined. I am particularly interested in helping people disarm the inner critic that can punish and paralyze us."

"Loneliness is considered an epidemic. It can make people feel more affected by, and take loved ones' and coworkers' behaviors and opinions, more personally. Focusing on others' imagined thoughts about you can be a problem when it starts to replace your own internal guidance system. Especially if you: Tend to be hypercritical of yourself Hold higher standards for yourself than others, but often feel disappointed by them Regularly find yourself in unhealthy relationships Excel at "helping" others reach goals but feel lost when it comes to your own? Feel stuck, especially if you are single? Struggle with self-esteem? Anxiety? Acknowledgement of your successes?"
