My Approach to Helping

You're no stranger to believing that you're somehow deficient. From an early age, you discovered that certain parts of yourself would not be accepted, so you found ways to minimize your needs, silence your emotions, and basically shape shift into whomever you needed to be. Now, as an adult, this strategy isn't working anymore. You're tired of feeling totally disconnected from yourself and are longing to find a way out of this familiar, yet unhelpful, pattern.

You are in the right place. Recovering from toxic shame and high degrees of low self-worth is possible! Together we can create a space where you don't have to minimize yourself or silence your feelings. I work side by side with you to create a secure place where you can have some freedom to be you and explore your feelings and needs, which can lead to profound internal change.

You don't have to suffer in silence anymore. Experiencing chronic shame and beliefs of unworthiness causes real pain. One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that your needs and feelings matter. Your pain is real and you don't need to qualify it. The space to be authentically you is available to you. We can help you get there together.

More Info About My Practice

I am so excited to say that I offer an exclusive online therapy practice! What that means is that you and I would meet through a HIPAA compliant video software that lets you meet with me in the comfort of your own home or office. Studies are showing that online therapy is equivalent in efficacy (if not more) to in-person therapy!

My philosophy is that a good therapist is a good therapist regardless if they're online or in person. I think it's more important that you find a therapist that fits your needs, not just one that's close by, which is why online therapy is so awesome. :)

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love walking the path of self-discovery with people. I feel so at home in being with someone who is working out an issue in their life and truly feel inspired by the individuals I work with.

From my experience as a therapist, no one person has it all together and most people have something they're struggling with. There is no right or wrong way of being, we just are experiencing life as it happens.

I love being a therapist because I get to witness wonderful transformations in people. I feel so empowered by the individuals I treat and am constantly in awe of the challenges that they overcome and the inner wisdom that is discovered.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Going to therapy does not mean you are weak or flawed. I cannot repeat that enough. Therapy is merely an invitation to get to know yourself on another level.

We all benefit from taking the time to talk with another person in a meaningful way. Therapy is simply another tool of taking care of yourself, improving your relationships with others, and gaining a deeper understanding of who you are.

Groups I Work With

    I work with you: the adult individual who has learned to minimize, ignore, or downright neglect your emotions for much of your life. You may have had a pivotal moment in your childhood where you made a conscious choice to \\"stop feeling\\" and began developing ways to stay distant from those parts of you. Now, you\\'re realizing that keeping a safe distance from your feelings has robbed you of the chance to truly live. There\\'s fear, but there\\'s also a deep desire to be fully human, emotionally free, and flexible in your relationships. \r\n\r\nI also work with adult clients who grew up in homes with a narcissistic or emotionally neglectful parent(s) and are working towards reclaiming their lives and identities. \r\n\r\nMany of my clients would call themselves \\"people pleasers\\" and want to find new ways of relating to others without falling into the pleasing trap. They want real, authentic relationships where their feelings matter and where they can say no, set boundaries, and take care of themselves without guilt.
