You’re exhausted from taking care of so many things all at once (isn’t that how it tends to happen) but when you stop to think of what you just did, even that seems like a blur. You know you’re overwhelmed, but have a hard time delegating. If you don’t do it, it just won’t get done properly. And it goes on and on. The funny thing is, on the outside you have it all together. Which only makes it that much harder to ask for help.

Courage, dear heart, as life will present you with surprises and in time, you will manage each one with bravery. Our families can push our boundaries; our relationships can challenge us; and our careers can stretch us so thin. Negative self-thoughts can keep us in our heads and repeating old patterns can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Past traumas can intrude our present; social injustices can break our community down; and gender and cultural inequalities can be an exhausting battle. Our self-care can plummet and suddenly we are not our first priority. However, you are leaning in today and making an investment in YOU!

I provide tele therapy for individuals, and couples for CA residents. I do not have a physical office in CA. I also offer treatment for trauma. In today's world we are all finding that after working full time there isn't enough time to eat right, exercise, take care of errands, help the children with homework, and spend quality time with your significant relationships. What we end up with is exhaustion, feeling "burned out", anxious, and maybe even depressed. You are not alone. Don't suffer any longer. It's time to address your issues and get your life back.

When someone significant in your life is acting out, it’s maddening. Is it them?..is it you? Regardless, something has to shift. If you're in that space with your child, parent, or someone else; you know it can be a source of real suffering. There may be anger, depression, anxiety..it is stressful at the very least. Don't do this alone. Let's talk.

I am passionate about supporting women and teens facing the challenges of life in a way that helps them find sustained change. It is hard to live in this world and not question if our bodies, stories, and voices are “good enough.” We wonder if it is possible for us to be okay with who we are, and make different choices than we’ve made in the past. We often make decisions that are rooted in insecurity, leaving us trapped in anxiety. I value helping women learn to understand and respect their whole story on their own terms. Together we can define your own goals for change.

You may be feeling confused or anxious about your life. Deep inside you desire more but feel stuck and keep cycling in the same patterns. I know how overwhelming and unsettling this can feel. Many of my clients realize they hold a lot in or distract themselves from their feelings because they just don't know what to do about them. If this sounds familiar, you are in the right place. Trust that voice that deep down is telling you that there is more for you in life and that you deserve to truly be happy. I teach clients how to finally release old stuck emotions and stop spinning in the same dysfunctional patterns.

I help clients mend their broken hearts and calm their overactive minds by joining them in their journey towards deeper self-awareness through kindness and compassion. I whole-heartedly believe in the beauty of each person's unique perspective, and at the same time, gently encourage clients to be mindful of the universal human experiences of love and loss. Thus, providing comfort while helping clients explore issues that are difficult or painful. My creative and empathetic approach can assist clients in breaking a repetitive mindset by allowing them to gain new perspective through fresh insights, support and empowerment.
