Therapy Style

You may be getting sick of trying so hard and never feeling like you are enough. Maybe you are drowning in self-doubt and criticism. When the ANXIETY of failing or being rejected becomes your main motivation, it’s time for a new way of being in the world. After working together, my clients are able to enjoy the process of growing, connecting, and achieving. Clients start to feel pulled towards their goals, rather than pushed by fear.

My therapeutic approach is Holistic. I help clients integrate the mind, body, emotions, and spirituality by increasing awareness through mindful, solution-focused action. As a cancer survivor, I understand the burden of anxiety and difficulty enjoying life with so much fear.

Each person's journey is unique and no one can truly understand your experience until they have walked in your shoes. I would be honored to walk the path to more FREEDOM and joy with you. If you are ready to cultivate positive self-talk, and celebrate progress over perfection… let’s talk about a custom plan for you.

What book have you read more than once?

Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents - it's a game changer. I see the common core belief in my clients is I am not enough which comes from attachment styles created by our parents.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

ASPCA - rescues animals from abuse. Animals have no say and no control at all. They are in need of someone to help and advocate for them

How do you recharge?

Tapping, yoga, doing nothing for 1 day a week, hiking, and being in nature.
