About My Clients

Entering therapy can feel like stepping into the unknown territory. You are little nervous, guarded, or maybe even scared of what could come up to the surface. And yet staying where you are is probably even more frightening and no longer an option for you. If you don't like how your life is, take one step closer to see what you need to change.

My Approach to Helping

How do you choose a therapist that's right for you? I wondered what information to put in this section so that it would come across as genuine and true and reflect who I am as a therapist and a human being. I work with women who are interested in finding a new way of being in their life from the inside out. In our sessions, we begin with mindfulness and identify your beliefs and patterns, connect with your pain, and discover new tools and resources so that you can move toward deeper sense of self-trust and self-confidence. My job is to earn your trust and create a safe and supportive environment for your healing and growth. I never push you where you don't want to go or are not ready to look, but I will challenge you when needed;) If you want to move closer to a better life, you can begin by calling me today. In my free 20-minute phone or video consultation, we can decide if you and I would work well together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people heal when they feel seen, heard, and understood. I believe most of us feel not good enough in some ways and are trying to pretend like that's not the case. I believe that we all (on some deep level) want to let go of the facade and share our true selves so that we can finally connect with each other and be loved for who we are. Sharing and talking about what we have in common in safe spaces can help us move toward that way of being. I think therapy is a good place to start:)
