I work with women who struggle with feeling valued, seen or heard. I will help you develop confidence in your voice, your path and how you move forward in life. Together, we will build a partnership to explore with curiosity the ways in which you struggle and feel pain, and how you have learned to cope and adapt. Unlearning and processing what makes life hard for us can be a daunting task. Asking for help when you need it is a brave first step.
Do you struggle with constant worry? Intrusive thoughts that impact your well-being at every turn? I can help you adapt coping skills to reduce the impact that anxiety has on your daily life. We'll discover what is at the root of your anxiety while I teach you tools to combat the thoughts that impact your daily life.
Although it can be difficult to choose to focus on yourself, activists, campaign, and front line relief workers report commonly experiencing frustration, anger, and burnout. As you grow and discover your understanding of the world and your passion for improving it, you may have reached a point where you run out of steam. I am here to offer you a safe space to process your story, discuss your anger, and grieve the losses.
As a systems therapist, I believe that patriarchy, racism and capitalism have impacted the overall development and accessibility of healing services. I believe there is value in deconstructing the ways we have been impacted by those systems and how we can break down the barriers they create in our lives. I will help you lean into your own self-identity and free you from the pain that oppressive systems have caused you.
It is not easy to discuss meaning making and the concepts of life and death with our social circle or friend group. I am here to provide the space for you to evaluate the human condition, your place within it and what it all means to you.
Our overall beliefs can impact what we think and feel. Those beliefs can impact our behavior and actions. If we can process our past experiences and how they formed us, we can see patterns that may not be serving us and develop healthy ways to reframe our minds.
Do you find yourself inundated with constant worry or intrusive anxious thoughts? The thoughts impact so much of your life you feel like you are carrying around a heavy ballon. I can help you identify the root causes of anxiety and stress in your life while teaching you helpful techniques you can use in your own time to reduce the burden that anxiety has had on your overall wellbeing.
Do you struggle with feeling valued, seen or heard? Have you felt untethered to your self-image or uncomfortable in your body? I work with women to develop confidence and feel comfortable in their bodies at any size. Together, we will explore with curiosity the ways in which you struggle and feel pain, and how you have learned to cope and adapt. Unlearning and processing what makes life hard for us can be a daunting task. Asking for help when you need it is brave first step.
