About My Clients

Have you felt exhausted because you sacrifice so much, at work, at home, in your family and relationships? Are you the person who gives till it hurts? My clients are tired of putting themselves on the back burner and want to be able to enjoy their life instead of dreading how much energy it takes to show up for everyone else. Therapy is the perfect place to work through why we give too much at our own expense and change it.

My Background and Approach

My orientation is very relational which means I believe our connection in therapy is what matters most. Therapy can be uncomfortable and push us to be vulnerable so it is important to build trust before we dig deeper. I've gotten training and experiences that make me well rounded but most clients care more about the value of treatment than they do about the alphabet soup of therapy modalities. The value of our work together is you getting CLARITY about who you are, what you want and how to get there. Often times our traumas or anxieties keep us stuck living in patterns we don't know how to shake. Let's sort it out together and get you on a path that let's you enjoy life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My favorite roles are being a mother, wife and friend. The things that drive me most are creating, learning and being of service. I love boundaries and may be a bit of a broken record tying all things back to this concept/ practice. I believe a universal truth is all things have balance- so when we have issues there is often something unsteady in our lives.
