"Are you looking for a therapist that feels relatable and like a real person? If you're anything like I was when I first saw a therapist as a young adult, you crave that authenticity from your counselor. I promise to never ask you "and how does that make you feel?" with a straight face. Don't get me wrong, I *will* ask about your feelings, but I'm not into going through the motions and acting a role. Do you want to spend the time and effort it takes to get down past surface symptoms to the real deep work, to be able to live more comfortably in your own skin, to be able to feel your emotions, not just think them? If so, contact me."

"Are you tired from staying hidden and playing small? Do you find yourself wanting to show up in a way that feels more authentic and congruent to you, but you don’t know how? Maybe you feel like you’re too sensitive and you’ve been spending a lot of energy trying not to be that way. Imagine what it could be like to live in sync with your story, your emotions, and your body.
