About

Does your world feel upside down and overwhelming? Are you tired of people saying this is your "new normal?" What's taken over? Cancer, parenting, chronic illness, taking care of aging parents, becoming an empty nester? During the day you're distracted and irritable, and you can't remember the last time you slept soundly through the night. The anxiety and worry about what could happen is too loud only drowned out by regret. You spend your days caring for everyone but yourself and wondering what's next for you. Is there anything? Is there more? You stay small and silent, hiding your true feelings to protect those you love.
I can help ease the stress and fear that's hanging over you like a dark cloud, so you can stop being a bystander and take part in your life. I'm the kind of therapist who is compassionate, but will also call you out on your own sh*t when it's getting in the way. I can handle the stuff you can't say out loud so you can focus on living YOUR life.
Contact me for a free consultation if you're ready to banish the fears that are keeping you stuck, diffuse unexpected anger, reduce stress, learn mindfulness or rediscover the qualities you miss in yourself. If you're ready to be authentic, live more fully, and stop people pleasing, let's talk! I offer (video) counseling in GA and coaching world-wide.
