My Approach to Helping

Do you feel lost & unhappy even though your life looks good on the outside? You put up a good front, so no one knows how unhappy you are inside. Or how hard you are on yourself. Never feeling like you are good enough. Or like you can make others better or happy enough.

You have always been more comfortable being the strong, go-to person, than the person who needs support. So much so that you ignore your own needs, feelings, and desires.

But you can no longer ignore the unhappiness you feel with yourself and in your relationships. Even though you worry that you may never heal from the past, deep down you know you deserve more for yourself.

You hope to:
+better understand and care for yourself without feeling guilty
+be yourself no matter what
+learn to love all of yourself instead of only when things are going well
+stop tolerating disrespect in your relationships
+let go of defining yourself based on the roles others want for you
+own your worthiness instead of trying to earn or prove it

If this resonates with you, then you are exactly who I help heal in a deep, heart-centered way. I help you get out of your mind and into your body and heart. So you can heal those parts of you that have been protecting you for so long by demanding that you be someone without flaws or someone that must hold others' expectations. So you can see the truth that you are already whole.

I am here to show you there is another way. That is, learning to access love, wisdom, and healing from within yourself is possible. Since most of us were never taught that love comes from within too, it can be helpful to have a guide. Someone that accepts all of you, while also believing in your ability to grow and be more fully YOU.

If any of this resonates with you, then let's have a conversation about working together. You can schedule a free 15-minute phone call with me on my website.
