My Approach to Helping

Your attempts at keeping anxiety and stress under wraps and appearing as though you have it all put together are exhausting. Everyday stressors trigger panic and fear and your body is feeling the brunt of all the stress you lug around and attempt to hide. People pleasing is second nature and you can’t seem to prioritize your needs, or even know what your needs are at times.

You imagine being more authentic, but you’re so used to constricting your feelings and ideas. This has left you feeling disconnected inside and out. There’s a longing for a deeper relationship with yourself and others. You’re ready to turn down that pent up noise so you can live a richer more meaningful life with purpose and ease.

Let’s bring down the volume together using effective and proven methods like Brainspotting and EMDR. Learn to connect to yourself more fully and gently so you can shift how you respond to stress and let go of what’s attached. Sessions provide a mix of lightness and humor, like talking with an old friend and mindfulness processing methods, guided by years of experience.

Build or regain your ability to focus on what matters to you most. Enjoy the confidence that comes with new perspectives and wisdom you didn't realize you had. Change is possible and within reach. Call me today or send a quick message to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation. I’m looking forward to connecting with you.
