Stress, relationships, or identifying as LGBTQIA leaves you feeling overwhelmed, unappreciated, unloved, and unable to live in your truth. The pressure of being everything for everybody while ignoring your own needs is becoming too much. Who’s taking care of you? Who’s making sure your needs are met? The kids, work, your relationship, just life has caused you to put yourself on the back burner while taking care of everyone else. You are making decisions to please others, while you are unhappy and the stress of being true to yourself has become a burden. You’re finally ready to make yourself a priority and live in your truth.

Anais Nin stated, “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”. So much of how we view ourselves and the world is influenced by beliefs and behaviors developed through repeated patterns, experiences, and people. My goal is to walk alongside you as a guide, providing you the tools, resources, and objectivity to begin unlearning those beliefs and behaviors that are keeping you stuck. I work from a solution-focused perspective with an integrative approach to therapy.

Here’s the thing, when you’re feeling unmotivated, find that you’ve been procrastinating on almost every task, and/or wondering, “How did I end up here?” it’s a surefire sign that overwhelm has set in. Without having the proper tools to identify triggers and learn to preemptively help your brain out, you’re having meltdowns at embarrassing times, picking fights with friends and family, and finding yourself stuck in habits that you know are harmful or unhelpful. This can lead to immeasurable emotional and physical exhaustion.

Let me guess; you’re the strong friend that everyone’s saying to check on. You’re the one who ignores the red flags in relationships or neglects the responsibility of self-care because someone needs you. You’re the overwhelmed person juggling too many tasks, feeling depleted, or trying to heal yourself from past traumas. Life is about transitions, and we need support getting through the rough patches. You are more resilient, capable of healing, worthy of love, and deserving of peace than you may realize. If you’re ready to reduce the stress, heal, or confidently achieve peace for a better quality of life, you're in the right place.
