Announcement icon I have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.
Do you feel emotionally stuck? Are you a stuffer? You know, someone who hides your true feelings so you appear "okay" on the outside. Then, let me join you on your journey of feeling & healing. Healing is a process, an ongoing discovery & I'm here to help you uncover hope, find harmony & move towards healing. I'll support you in processing your feelings in order to live your most authentic life. Since earning my BA in Psychology and my Master of Social Work degree, I have worked passionately with individuals, couples, families, adults, college students & teens to learn positive ways to cope with life's many stressors.
As a therapist and fellow human being, I'm familiar with grief and loss; not just the loss of a loved one but the loss of a dream. Whether it be your dream high school or college experience, dream career, dream partner, dream family or dream life; feeling grief over lost dreams is part of being human and we all go through it at some time or another.
Since navigating our emotions can be difficult, many of us desperately try to mask our pain. Avoiding it at all costs or coping in negative or perhaps destructive ways. Together, you and I can explore your uncomfortable feelings and discover positive ways to cope with them. If you're ready to feel unstuck, I can help. Take that first step and reach out today
