About My Clients

You’re there when everyone else needs you but feel stuck and anxious when it comes to doing things for yourself. Your cup is often empty and you know what will help but the guilt and fear of disappointing others gets in the way. You know your needs should matter but you have a hard time believing it. When you do finally get the time, you’re often not sure how to spend it with yourself so you stay busy. You’re tired, ready to finally invest time in yourself and make a change.

My Background and Approach

You want to live a life where you have more freedom rather than constantly feeling tied down by other’s needs and expectations. You want to feel in control and the confidence to say no sometimes. You want to have fun and feel more at ease without all the guilt. You want to feel closer to your friends and have relationships where you’re not afraid to be real instead of worrying so much what others think. I’ve been in your shoes and I can help you get out of your own way. I can support you to befriend yourself via my mind, body and soul approach. I can help you to increase your ability to tolerate emotional discomfort, set boundaries and create a life in which you are the leader.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I spent many years in a state of constant anxiety, hyperfocused on the needs and feelings of the people around me. I was often burned out but had such a hard time saying no. I looked at people around me who were confident and able to set boundaries as having something I didn't. Things started to shift for me when I started going to therapy which opened me up to the possibility that nothing wrong with me; It was the patterns and beliefs I had learned about myself keeping me stuck. My own experiences led me to believe that if I am capable of changing my life around, other people like me are too. I am now passionate about supporting other women who believe they aren't capable of taking up space and being the leader of their own lives to realize that they ARE. If I can do it, so can you.
