About My Clients

Do you feel that anxiety, stress and panic are taking a toll on you body and the mind? Have you been hit with anxiety about your child's wellbeing or concerned they have anxiety? I know what you're feeling. Being a parent is hard work. If only there was a guide book, right? I am here to support you and work with you, your children, and/or your spouse. Mindfulness based practices can reduce anxiety significantly, and I look forward to teaching tools to take back your life.

My Background and Approach

My goal is to help you meet your goals, if you aren't sure what those are yet- don't worry we can do that together. I will give you tools that have helped many others dealing with similar things you have. They can be used anywhere you are. Together, we will work to address anxiety, self esteem issues, or anything that is bothering you right now. I will meet you where you are at in the moment and we will work to make you feel safe and secure. Most of my life has been focused on helping people get rid of anxiety and negative thoughts. Through my training and 7 years of professional work, I can teach you how to find relief. We will work together to figure out why you are feeling this way and establish positive coping tools to use quickly. The intervention is dependent on you; there is no one size fits all.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people are ever evolving but sometimes we get 'stuck' and we develop unhealthy behaviors to compensate for the 'stuckness' we feel. That stuckness sometimes gets labeled as mental health issues, but overall I think we all experience stuckness from time to time. Mental health is just a label to make it easier for people to understand and communicated together about a category of issues. Nonetheless, some people stay stuck longer, but that doesn't indicate anything negative about that person, but rather that they need help getting unstuck. I believe a great first way to feel a little less stuck is to give a pet or a human a hug and take a deep breath.
