“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent.
Caring for myself is an act of survival.”
– Audre Lorde
I help professionals, teens, and those in-between recover from past hurts, improve relationships, and move from surviving to truly thriving.
Hello & Welcome
Please, take a seat on the couch. The chair isn’t very comfortable and one leg is slightly shorter than the others, so you’ll rock back and forth if you sit there.
Now then. I’ll cut right to the chase.
Tough times don’t last; tough people do.
How do I know that?
My sister has it tattooed on her arm.
Seriously, though. You are strong and resilient and you’re going to make it. You’re the blank canvas upon which anything is possible and the caterpillar crawling blindly (but ever so cutely!) around. This is the safe place to spin your cocoon, shed your skin, and leave feeling freer than ever before.
this is about becoming your most badass self -
this is no bulls*t counseling
You’re exhausted! You’ve been running full throttle for so long and it’s finally starting to catch up to you. You enjoy your work, but it’s been extra hard lately. Your family is complicated and you’re tired of the drama. It all feels exhausting and really you just want to go away on your own for some peace and quiet.
Look, I get it.
Take a deep breath,
Drop your shoulders,
Relax your jaw.
Now, let’s talk
Which Are You?
Passionate and sometimes idealistic, you truly want to change the world. People see you as a leader; they trust and value your opinion. Despite the accolades and accomplishments, you struggle with imposter syndrome and anxiety; you’re on a fast path to burnout. You find it difficult to say no or set boundaries with others. Your relationships are lacking and you want more fun in life, but the fear of rejection or failure keeps you stuck and lonely.
The Old Soul
As a loyal helper who is busy tending to the needs of others, you rarely make time for yourself. At the end of the day, you collapse on the couch, utterly exhausted from taking in so much stimulation (people! lights! noise! news!). It’s hard to reach out and ask others for help. Your relationships are unbalanced and you want more connections, but the fear of burdening others or seeming ‘weak’, keeps you overwhelmed and exhausted.
The Creative Mind
You have always been a bit of a dreamer, a visionary with big ideas who believes: “if you can dream it, you can do it.” Expressing yourself and leaving a lasting mark in the world drive you. Mediocrity and failure are your nemeses. You don’t want to get trapped in a life of conformity and lose your sense of wonder. Naturally curious and observant, you try to live life to the fullest
What's Your Struggle?
Overcoming insecurity and self-doubt can be difficult on your own. Many people find they become more confident as we work together. They develop increased coping + assertiveness skills as they better understand themselves and their relationships. I will help you understand your thoughts, feelings, wants, and needs. I will help you find you own voice + power, set and hold healthy boundaries with others, and reach your goals. You know what is best for you – how your values influence your behaviors. I come along with you on this journey and we work together to meet your goals. I am similar to that of a personal trainer or coach. I cannot do this work for you, however I can teach you new skills, strengthen your form, and help you pace yourself along the way. As with working out, the best way to reach your goals are with commitment, persistence, and determination. I am ready to begin when you are.
