About

I am a licensed therapist and a certified life coach for girls in high school, college, and in their 20's. I help young women by providing them the space and the tools they need to truly understand themselves; necessities they often lack. From this foundation they begin to negotiate the complexities of relationships and other essential life skills.My approach makes the transition from adolescence to adulthood seem more manageable. Together, we develop skills to overcome the challenges which often plague young women, and unpack anxieties in a mindful safe way so that they can succeed in spite of them.
I chose to become a certified life coach for girls after years practicing therapy. Having worked with hundreds of young women, I began to appreciate and realize that instead of therapy, these girls needed concrete coping tools. The framework of coaching provides just that: a solution-focused, skills-based, and collaborative approach.
My innovative model includes individual, group, virtual, and contact-as-needed in between sessions. I integrate, Social and Emotional Intelligence, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens, Relational-Cultural Theory, and utilize a Client-Centered approach. If you're struggling, or seeking to help someone who is hurting, please reach out.

More about this group

The Grrrls Connection

TGC is a unique group comprised of girls, grades 7-12, who are committed to creating and sustaining authentic relationships with themselves and others. These skills are building blocks for girls' psychological and social development, and inform critical aspects of life as girls mature into young adults. When girls develop a deeper understanding and awareness of social and emotional intelligence, possibilities unfold and their world expands in ways that were not possible previously. Gaining insight into themselves, and learning how to manage their feelings and relationships are the foundation for confident, strong young women who FLOURISH.
