Let's Connect (240) 202-3058
Whether you struggle to connect, struggle to fit in, or are wrestling with accepting yourself as you are, I am excited to get to know you. But I already know that you have the strength and courage you need to change your life. Maybe you can imagine just what you want for yourself, but you get stuck when it comes to figuring out how, leaving you frustrated, embarrassed, or disheartened. That's where I can help, with over a decade of experience in turning hopes into changes.
I believe firmly that we are each of us the author of our own lives, and that we have a right to decide our direction, even in the face of unavoidable obstacles. Together, we will find what is and isn’t working for you, so you can determine, with clarity and kindness, what you want to change and how to develop the life you really want, one step at a time.
If you are ready to take a closer look at your life, with a gentle and compassionate partner in the process, I would be delighted to talk with you. If you think you might be ready, but aren't sure, I would still be delighted to talk with you. Email or call me to schedule a free 15 minute consultation.

I would like to help you find some traction quickly, by focusing on things that can help people to feel a better quickly-using a strategy called "behavioral activation." Once you have your footing, it's easier to start bringing in mindfulness and body-awareness skills to help you roll with your feelings as they arise and make more conscious choices in your life.
