Hey, queer folks. Are you struggling to incorporate your empathic heart and intuitive spirit into your busy life? Maybe you're feeling unfulfilled at work, at home, and in your romantic relationships. You likely know this—even if it's just begrudgingly—but avoiding your feelings and intuition by keeping yourself busy is exhausting you. It seems no matter what you try, you often feel guilty, dissatisfied, and anxious. Underneath your hyper-competent shell, there is someone who is longing for connection, clarity, and freedom. Are you ready to deepen into your true self?
We often find ourselves and bodies, on the path towards health after overwhelming experiences, trauma, grief or loss.

You can’t pinpoint when it happened, but all of a sudden you don’t feel the same. You’re waking up feeling discontent and struggling to get out of bed. Sometimes you find yourself wondering what you’re doing with yourself… You don’t feel fulfilled at all. You think you should feel great - You have the job, the friends, likes and follows from your connections… yet you still feel alone. Your inner voice is telling you something is missing.
There are usually two types of reasons people come into therapy. One is that find themselves making the same mistakes over and over again and they want to do something different, but are just not sure how.

I help you change the current unwanted behavior, while also helping you resolve issues from your past that may be effecting your reactions.
