Would you say that you are your own worst critic? When you beat yourself up inside, it is difficult to find joy in your work and relationships. Finally softening towards yourself will free up energy for you to fulfill your goals. I use mindfulness and IFS (Internal Family Systems) strategies to help clients do deep and meaningful work in sessions. "I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side..." Maya Angelou When my clients begin to truly be a friend to themselves, they notice positive changes in many aspects of their lives.
I specialize in working with people who have the HSP trait (Highly Sensitive Person). People with this trait often feel overwhelmed, and there is a strong need to be heard by someone who really gets you. I also work with couples, guiding you to uncover the underlying issues within conflicts, fostering a deeper connection and a more fulfilling intimacy.
We will have our sessions over secure video, so you don't have to deal with traffic or carve out time to sit in a waiting room. Visit my website and reach out for a free consult about working together. I look forward to helping you navigate your healing journey.

I often work with individuals who are anxious and have high expectations of themselves. These people don't know how wonderful they are, as they have a strong and loud self critic. Although this part helps them to be successful, it also gets in the way of their happiness and fulfillment. Many of my clients identify as HSP's (Highly Sensitive People) and/or are part of the queer community.
