"You are who you are. Which parts are fundamental and fixed? Which parts are receptive to change, able to expand? It’s a relief to figure yourself out and work towards that acceptance. But it also may be a surprise how much you really can shift in your life. There are untapped tools and resources you may not be harnessing, which can bring freedom & direction. You can quiet the negative chatter in your head that does its best to undermine you. Rewarding relationships, fulfilling work, personal power, relief from symptoms, an expressive & meaningful life at home and in society - this is what we’re striving for. You can have all that!"

With my warm and interactive style, I offer a nonjudgmental and safe setting where you can feel comfortable sharing feelings and frustrations.

This happens by gaining deeper self-knowledge and altering patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are preventing you from achieving greater personal fulfillment.

Anxiety and depression do not have to rule your day-to-day world, or keep you from experiencing a bright future. Letting go of what no longer works is possible with a few simple practices: watching negative self-talk, stop comparing and living in the here and now. With compassion, wit and hope, I support women in identifying and expressing feelings, build healthy boundaries and finding their passions.
