My Approach to Helping

Have you ever thought there was a more authentic version of yourself? Maybe you’ve glimpsed this version in the eyes of someone who loves you—like a grandparent, teacher, or friend. They see only the best in you and you feel strong, confident, and content around them.

Spoiler alert: this can be you all the time! But first, you have to bust through any ingrained, negative thoughts about yourself that you formed earlier in life so you can fully shine.

When we work together, we’ll look closely at these thought processes and how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other. We'll also work on boundaries, communication, and distress tolerance.

Let's look ahead to the life you want and build up skills to reach your goals, as well as understand the strengths you already have. Our work will take place in a safe and unconditionally accepting space. In a world that pulls our focus in so many directions, we will focus on just you.

Groups I Work With

    I work with adults who feel stuck in their lives, or like they’re not living in their truth. They might be in a dead-end job, staying in an unfulfilling relationship, or engaging in people-pleasing behaviors that make it difficult to express their needs. Together, we’ll create strategies for getting unstuck and create a happier, more fulfilling life.

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Divorce / Divorce Adjustment
  • Parenting
  • Relationships and Marriage
  • Women's Issues
