My focus as an intentional therapist is to help people heal from past traumas, uncover their authentic selves, increase self-worth, and discover their inherent resiliencies.

My Therapy Style

Are you a woman who on the outside everyone sees you as put together and accomplished but internally, you’re breaking? The overthinking, self-doubt, and feelings of unworthiness are overwhelming. You are tired of feeling anxious like you don’t measure up. You are ready to feel confident and whole in your own skin and at ease in your body.

Many of my clients identify as overachievers, people pleasers, and perfectionists. You are insightful, want a deeper understanding of yourself and your past experiences, and are ready to step into your power. You are not alone and have come to the right place. My focus as an intentional therapist is to help people heal from past traumas, uncover their authentic selves, increase self-worth, discover their inherent resiliencies, strengthen their personal relationships, increase relational self-awareness, and build a lifelong toolkit of healthy, effective coping strategies for whatever challenges life may bring.

Therapy has the potential to be transformative, empowering you to navigate life's challenges with newfound strength & resilience. I invite you to reach out for a complimentary 15-minute consultation, where you can gain clarity on my approach and how it aligns with your goals. I'm honored to accompany you on this journey towards positive change.
