My Approach to Helping

If You feel burnt out, adrift and anxious from giving so much of yourself to others, it can be hard to live life with the passion and clarity. When you want to be able to do the work you love without feeling distracted by how much other people need from you, but it feels like you're running on emotional and creative empty. I help anxious, overwhelmed people feel less drained, more inspired, and more authentically connected to friends and family.

More Info About My Practice

My goal is to help you develop a foundation for healthier relationship with others while gaining a deeper understanding of yourself.
