My Approach to Helping

My therapy practice focuses on helping you discover your inner strength, confidence, and knowledge so you can live a life that’s more joyful, peaceful, and fun! Whether you want to show up more fully in your relationship, advocate for yourself at work, or learn to trust your innate inner wisdom, we’ll work collaboratively to nourish your sense of independence and self determination.

Conquering negative self talk, overcoming old patterns, and setting boundaries that support your mental health are all areas we’ll explore together. Curiosity and compassion will guide us through this process so we can identify what’s working for you, what isn’t, and create an individualized approach to therapy that’s aligned with the life you want to build. As a result, you’ll be able to experience all of life’s richness as the best version of yourself possible!

The world would be a better place if all of us recognized and took ownership of our inner strength. Sometimes, having a person in your corner to empower you along your journey can make all the difference. Let’s move together in the direction of more joy, deep fulfillment, and authentic purpose.

More Info About My Practice

I’m an advocate for social justice and environmental issues. Volunteering is also a passion of mine. In the past, I’ve traveled to Haiti and the Catskills for various service projects. I’m also an animal and nature lover and believe both can be incredibly healing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Groups I Work With

    My clients are people who want more from life and are ready to shed the limiting beliefs holding them back from being the most confident version of themselves.

    Throughout life, we learn defense mechanisms and poor coping strategies that keep our authenticity and inner spark locked deep inside of us. By going to therapy, you can dig through layers of programming that leave your true self boxed in, rewrite the stories that keep you small, and find the inner fuel for making the most out of life. My goal is to support you in building your self esteem so you can fearlessly shine your light.
