With my professional and personal experiences as a woman, partner , and mother I will listen to you, understand what you are enduring, challenge you when necessary, and offer guidance, support, and advice.
Regardless of our experiences, beliefs, or social circumstances, we all fight the silent and lonely battles of not feeling like we are enough. As women, we are often subjected to conflicting and competing expectations about love, sex, parenting, work, and relationships. In the face of such imposing outside opinions, it is essential to check in with yourself: Do You find yourself in an unfulfilling relationship, struggling to find your voice, or feeling your needs are not being met? Do you feel misunderstood or betrayed by the people close to you? Do you feel resentful, angry, depressed, or anxious?

I specialize in working with adults, couples , and young adults ages 19-35yrs, and especially look forward to working with new moms.
We all want to feel that we are in control, alive and balanced. The reality is we can get stuck, confused, and in need of help. Feelings of frustration, hurt, doubt, worry, sadness, self-blame, or loneliness can set in. In other words, we become “unhappy.” We want to feel that we have a choice. A choice that will make things better whether it is for ourselves, our relationship, or our children.
