About My Clients

You often feel misunderstood, ignored, even silenced, and this prevents you from asking for what you want...for what you deserve. Every time you think you are ready to say how you feel or ask for what you want, you realize you are just too exhausted and would rather keep your feelings to yourself to avoid conflict. Deep down you know that you are struggling with your confidence. You find yourself in a cycle of unhealthy relationships but you can't seem to break the cycle. It's time to speak up.

My Background and Approach

In my experience working with women, lack of self-worth and a fear of communicating needs and desires drives someone to seek counseling. Working on the three fundamental areas: communication skills, self-esteem, and setting boundaries, is the best way to make clients aware of their needs. In order to make progress in these areas, women have to dig deep and think about the messages they have received from family, social networks, and society at-large to address why they feel unworthy, unable, and unsatisfied. These are the underlying causes of anxiety, depression, low-self-esteem and adjustment issues that keep women from recognizing their own power. If you are struggling to get out of bed in the morning, it is unlikely that you are going to feel motivated to communicate your needs, be proactive, or try new things. We can work on all of this together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Part of counseling is being challenged on your assumptions, behaviors, and negative self-talk, and I will challenge you. That is what helps us to focus inward, reflect on difficult feelings and experiences, and make lasting change. But I also know, especially when working with people who have been silenced for most of their lives, that sometimes all you need is for someone to listen. I will do that, too.
