About My Clients
Do you struggle with taking on other people's emotions? Feel you're "too sensitive” or judge yourself harshly, over-think things, and doubt yourself? Despite being bright, motivated and hard-working, you've felt stuck between a rock and a hard place in your relationships, work, and self-care. If you are often overwhelmed, you’ll learn to prioritize your needs to turn things around. We will identify which habits, thoughts, feelings and actions can be changed most easily to gain peace and freedom.
My Background and Approach
As an advanced practice nurse, my specialty lies in creating healing relationships with my clients - one that is built on trust, clear seeing, supportive feedback, encouragement, caring and warmth. You deserve to feel deeply heard, understood, and respected by someone who gets you and sees and celebrates your unique gifts and qualities. As a lifelong learner, my work evolves as I weave together mind-body techniques to enhance brain healing, develop creative solutions for chronic difficulties, and nurture your wellbeing and success. You will come away with short, daily practices you can reap rewards from, improved mindset/ attitudes that foster confidence and compassion. You will learn how to manage negative emotions (yours and others') and stay centered. You will find ways to calm your nervous system and improve your mood. Whether you are facing stressful life challenges, illness, anxiety, depression, or trauma, healing is possible.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe you are whole and worthy. You do not need "fixing," nothing is broken. The distress you feel may originate in your genetics, life experiences, relationships, and the ways you've learned to adapt to try to get your needs met. We are not always as skillful as we'd like to be. Fortunately, we can develop more skillful means, more self-acceptance and self-love. While difficult at first, opening up to a trust-worthy, caring professional can bring such relief! You are not alone in your fears, concerns and desires. It’s an honor and delight to help you see your strengths, foster more self-awareness, clarify what you truely want and need to become more fulfilled, relaxed, joyful and free. In Maine, there's a saying, "You can't get there from here!" Alone, that is often true. But together, we can navigate through your toughest challenges and help you see how adversity can become an ally. We'll start by befriending whatever is HERE, NOW. We’re not meant to heal alone.
