You finally feel like you have the main pieces of your life together. The career is going well, and you feel like you are making strides. You have a home that you feel good about and enough money to travel and see the world. But, who to see the world with? You are continually in and out of relationships and you aren't sure if you will ever find "the one". You're sick of the dating scene because it seems that you always end up with the wrong person. And even when you find who you think is "the one", red flags cause you to question what to do. Loneliness may lead to depression and anxiety. And all of this leads to despair.

“Resilience is not just for surviving the worst day of your life. It’s for thriving every day of your life.” When we feel overwhelmed, it can help to have someone nonjudgmental to talk to. When we run into roadblocks holding us back from achieving our highest potential, a supportive relationship can make all the difference in getting unstuck. I offer a compassionate, safe space for individuals to share their struggles, explore what habits or narratives aren’t serving them, and learn new ways of problem-solving.
