Compassionate & chill therapy for the modern young woman navigating life's twists & turns. Finding a therapist you vibe with is essential. I’m an active participant in your journey- offering insight, feedback, & direction. I’ll ask the hard questions but we’ll move at your pace. Therapy isn’t all serious all the time- humor heals, too! Together, we’ll map out your life and start to connect some dots. I hold space as you get to know yourself better (“why am I the way I am?”), help you process (“I’m aware of how aware I am of my stuff- now what!?”), and empower you to embrace your whole self.
I believe we make sense of ourselves & the world through our relationships and that the stories we tell ourselves shape our realities. Our unique therapeutic relationship allows you to explore your truest self freely & fully. We'll uncover the stories that have shaped your life, rewrite old versions that no longer serve you, and draft new narratives.
I’m committed to helping you gain insight into how you relate to yourself & others. By becoming more aware of your thoughts & emotions, you’ll better understand your needs & boundaries. In time, you’ll envision the life you want to lead & gain confidence in your ability to create it. I’d love to support & encourage you along the way.
