Often when we are struggling with a concern or difficulty in living, we can't help but feel as if we are stuck in a pattern that feels too daunting to make our way out of, even if we have a sense of what it takes to live differently. These patterns frequently maintain themselves in large part because of a lack of resources -- whether it is time, strained relationships, or unmet needs. Attempting to regain these resources can be difficult if done alone.

Feeling seen and understood is healing. When we do not feel seen for who we are, we can lose sight of ourselves and what makes us unique. When we are not accepted, we can begin to feel disconnected, depressed, or disillusioned with life. If left unaddressed, this can grow into a nagging emptiness and unsuccessful attempts to avoid the feeling. Life can feel like a chore under the fog of this mental struggle. With the support of therapy, many can find themselves out of the fog to build a fulfilling life. My services are for those who struggle with depression, self-worth, feeling lost in life, or identify as an empath or intuitive.
