“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
At one or more points in your beautiful life,
you experienced some messed-up stuff that fundamentally changed you.
Maybe you were abused or neglected.
Perhaps your parents or siblings were depressed, violent, or abusing substances.
You may have had a toxic relationship with someone
who was self-centered, manipulative, or incapable of expressing love.
Whatever the circumstances, you never felt like you ‘fit.’
You either lost or never gained a sense of who you are.
Most likely, you’re a smart, badass change-maker,
rebellious and spirited and ready to rule the world, but
you’re prevented from moving forward
by the paralyzing cycle of anxiety and depression.
Let’s free your soul.
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.
