"There is something keeping you from having the happy, fulfilling life you crave. Anxiety about your career is causing performance issues at work. Is it keeping you from enjoying life outside of work? Maybe stress is keeping you from sleeping. Your anxiety is relentless and exhausting. Perhaps a past sexual assault is making it difficult to have the healthy relationship you crave. It is making it hard to trust yourself and others. Or maybe you just can't get over that break-up. You're in a demanding career or caregiver role that has you burned out. You can't get away from low self-esteem and self-doubt. "

You have many roles and responsibilities, which makes it easy to lose yourself and more difficult to pursue personal interests and self-care. It takes courage to establish healthy boundaries and embrace your authentic self. Let’s talk. I want to hear your story. Let me help you re-write your story by prioritizing and assisting in the process of figuring out what’s working and what isn’t….and most importantly – what you want and how you can get it. "
