Throughout our life's journey, we encounter a multitude of experiences. Some may contain extreme joy and happiness, while others can manifest feelings of doubt, sadness, anxiety or questioning if change or healing is possible in our current circumstances. During these difficult seasons we need the courage and perspective to explore challenging questions and the willingness to listen to the answers that emerge. My goal is to empower my clients and develop a rapport which promotes the confidence, skills and change agents needed to progress towards a direction that nourishes emotional and physical well-being.

How discouraging it is to realize where you are, not understand how you got here and even worry it could get worse. What would life feel like with less worry, second guessing, comparison and overwhelm? Is anxiety, depression, fear of failure, perfectionism , regret about substance use and inability to forgive yourself chronic? Could healthier boundaries and less people pleasing improve relationship satisfaction? Do you yearn to deepen your connection to others in a more authentic way to reduce isolation and loneliness?

Sometimes, life gets really hard. Maybe it feels overwhelming right now. You need someone who will just listen and understand you, someone who won't judge you. You judge yourself enough already. You feel like you can never get it right. Like, you're not enough...or too much. You don't want to disappoint the people around you. You replay conversations in your head, judging yourself for every awkward moment or misunderstood joke. You want to be confident and carefree, but don't know where to start. Everything seems easy for everyone else. But, it's hard for you. You don't know if you fit in. You're trying to figure out who you are.
