Emotions and thoughts can be overwhelming. They can sometimes feel like a constant, distracting background noise. Clients sometimes compare their brains to "a hamster on a wheel". A noisy brain that is distracting , draining and all too often active at bedtime.

Do you get hijacked by your thoughts causing you to feel anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed? Freezing and giving up your power so the feelings of stress and overwhelm will just go away, leaving you feeling depleted? Are you in a relationship where the spark is not as bright, and the communication doesn’t feel as easy as it used to? Well let me just say that the relationship that we have with ourselves as well as the relationship that we have with others have changed over the past two years. We have had to navigate through the unfathomable and trying to get back to the way things used to be or finding a new sort of normal can feel

We all have days when we feel competent to take on the world, and then there are days when getting out of bed and brushing our teeth feels like an insurmountable task. If you are feeling overwhelmed, confused, or just not sure what to do and where to go next, let me be the first to say: "You are not alone!" Being human is difficult, particularly when we are trying to navigate our own needs in between the needs of our families, work, and the world.

Coaching is a profession that utilizes many tools and techniques to allow individuals to reach their full potential. A coach listens, guides, counsels, supports, and mentors individuals who are at a phase in their lives where they feel stuck or maybe they are craving a change and are unsure of how to facilitate it. The coaching process can address corporate success, interpersonal relationships, and other general aspects of life that are causing you to not meet your desires and goals. I will help to identify the obstacles that are in your way while focusing on your strengths, your purpose, and reminding you that ANYTHING is possible.

I believe therapy can provide a safe space for creating a more fulfilled life. There are times where we may experience traumas, feel stuck and emotionally disconnected, and have difficulty coping. My approach to therapy includes a humanistic centered style, where we establish a collaborative and trusting relationship to allow for vulnerability and personal growth to occur. I am committed to providing compassionate and empathetic care to support you in your journey towards self-discovery, where we can explore and identify your strengths, build confidence, and self- esteem.

My primary focus is the individual, family or couple who are unhappy with the relationships in their lives; helping them uncover the dynamics of those relationships, find your solution, closure, journey and ultimately, their path to accepting themselves. These dynamics can manifest themselves in addiction, alcohol, abuse, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, developmental and challenges of transitioning to different life stages. I help empower people, from women with long term sobriety facing life stage issues to parents struggling with teens. I honor the trust and faith placed on me and am committed to assisting you to THRIVE.

I offer a warm, caring and understanding environment so that insight, self-esteem and personal growth can develop. We work together so that you can become your BEST self. To quote Socrates: "the unexamined life is not worth living". A glimpse into our past, helps us understand the present and creates the foundation for a better future. Accessing and understanding our feelings starts the process of knowing ourselves and others, allowing us to take personal responsibility and making healthier choices, that ultimately leads to positive, life-long changes.

There's really something to be said about the challenges of exploring, understanding and harnessing our very active internal lives in the attempt to make sense of it all, to feel safe in our day to day. I'm endeared to the process and feel that in order to heal we have to work with others, be it community, loved ones, or Psychologist, to gather the best parts of ourselves and turn the incredibly complicated, painful and fragile into things elegant, agile, and straight-forward. The therapeutic process as a living and breathing construction. To build and strengthen the scaffolding in order to find authenticity, uniqueness and courage

Therapy doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With a kind heart and open mind, I strive to make therapy a comfortable place where you can explore the deepest insights about yourself with compassion and empathy. Therapy becomes an experience and journey about who YOU are and where YOU want to go. Is something standing in the way? Are you stuck in repetitive patterns or plagued by underlying issues? Whether you are suffering unbearable panic attacks, struggling with depression, or having difficulty with transitions, I'm here to help. Let's go beyond the surface and help YOU learn about YOU.
