About

You have to believe you deserve something different to actually get something different. How long are you willing to wait? Your answer isn't out there somewhere, it's ... inside you. If you struggle with managing relationship conflict, your constant negative self-talk, finding a partner, codependency, anxious thoughts, or expressing yourself authentically in your life it's likely you have some outdated stories running about yourself and what's possible in life. Those old stories are often related to early experiences in your family. You came up with some creative coping strategies that worked back then, but don't today.
When it doesn't feel safe to be who we REALLY are, or feel what we're truly feeling deep down, we come up with coping skills that might work in the moment but create problems over time. The truth is there is nothing "wrong" with you - but those old stories and beliefs you have running keep you on a hamster wheel that gets you nowhere.
My first priority is listening to you. Can we look at the problems you're experiencing now as opportunities to learn something new and then make different choices? Let's get to the heart of who you are with kindness, curiosity, and self compassion (and maybe a little creativity and humor too).
