Announcement icon I am currently only providing telehealth (video) appointments to ensure the safety of my clients while participating in social distancing.
If only you could just "fix it" or think "positively" you won't ever have to feel this way again. Yet, this battle never seems to win in your favor. The constant "should-ing" has left you feeling insecure, anxious, and stuck. Your self-doubt and inner critic are roaring and it's gotten difficult to even know what you want or need. I provide a safe and warm environment to slow down your busy mind and ease your distress to support you on the journey of tuning into your needs, finding comfort and confidence in your inner voice, and creating changes that will allow you to align your actions with your values.
I believe we all deserve to be seen and heard. I have a particular interest in working with individuals during transitions in their lives, whether it be a major life event such as a wedding, becoming a parent, divorce, or a recent move, or career transition. Change, even pleasant ones can elicit difficult emotions.
You can count on me to be warm, nurturing and direct. Together we will navigate your distress and celebrate your successes so that you can feel confident and comfortable in being you.
