About My Clients

Do you struggle with the belief that no matter what you do it won’t be good enough? Is it hard to say "no" to others because if they are upset with you, you will feel excessive guilt? Maybe you walk on eggshells around others, scared to say the wrong thing so you shut down and don’t speak up? I help people like you learn what your needs are so you can advocate, build boundaries and thrive in your relationships rather than be filled with guilt, shame and resentment.

My Background and Approach

I know you want to feel connected, understood, empowered and in control of your life. This all starts with learning how to calm that voice inside that secretly hopes you fail. I can help you access your fears so you can feel more free and live authentically. As a recovering people pleaser, I can relate to the struggles of needing to feel perfect, "good enough," and acting in a certain way to feel liked by others. By learning the skills to regulate and calm your emotions, you can slow down when reacting and responding to others. I will work with you at your own pace. This means we do not have to dive right into what may feel uncomfortable to share. Let's first build trust and ease into the process. If you are interested in working together, I encourage you to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that as children, we may endure or witness unhealthy dynamics within our family that as adults we must address and challenge. We carry many of these beliefs into our adult relationships and occupation, and it is important to unlearn what no longer serves us, so we can experience healthier connections, and a secure sense of self. When we have our guard up in relationships, it can be protective, but it can also get in the way of what we truly need to heal: comfort and ease in vulnerability, intimacy, and deep connection with ourselves and others.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
