“Every day, in every way, you are enough.” ~ Anon
I love these beautiful, inspiring words and have learned, through my personal healing and in my work with clients, the resistance we build that can challenge our ability to authentically believe in our own worth, deserving and value. In a warm, caring, supportive, accepting and non-judgmental environment, we can carefully create self-acceptance and improve our self-concept as we bravely learn to open our fragile hearts.
Many of us are hurting from experiences in our lives that we are having trouble reconciling. Understanding that we did the best we could at the time based on our skills, knowledge and experience helps us move through pain and heal. We tend to blame the situation, person and/or ourselves for our pain and magnify it to a level of discomfort that initiates our search for a therapist of good fit. We can learn to trust in a safe client-practitioner relationship, explore the past and develop an accurate self-concept to enhance ability to ease pain, reconcile the past and create the future that we want.

“Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.” ~Mandy Hale

When we feel stuck, it can be difficult to find the light that guides us towards a brighter future. I believe that feelings of worry, sadness, anger and confusion can be valuable tools for finding joy and purpose in our lives. We can’t ignore sticky areas and uncomfortable feelings — even if we try, they keep popping up.
Using an integrated and collaborative approach, I offer non-judgemental and compassionate support to help you explore the things that are holding you back. We can develop skills and access insights that will make navigating life easier. My approach is culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, and LGBTQ+ affirming.

“The best way out, is through” – Robert Frost
Although it may not seem intuitive or comfortable, when we are experiencing difficult circumstances or feeling stuck in our lives, being able to share with and walk with someone else can make all the difference in overcoming.
Is life more than you can handle right now? Are you feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed and alone with no one to talk to? Or are you doing ok but want to take your life to the next level? Too often, as adults of all ages and stages in life, we are told we need to be strong, face challenges, or manage significant change on our own. That’s simply not true. You don’t have to do it alone. I can help.
Most of us are hesitant to share our most intimate thoughts, emotions, and details about our lives for fear of being judged, ridiculed, or shamed. Even if we do, it can seem that no one understands what we’re going through which can make us feel even more alone. It can be a significant relief and incredibly healing to speak to someone in a safe, non-judgemental, and respectful environment. I can hold that space for you.
I will work collaboratively with you as you develop skills and access insights that make navigating life easier. My respectful, holistic, and supportive approach allows you the space to create the positive change you desire. I believe in a whole-health outlook to mental wellness and optimal living. What we put into our body, how we treat and strengthen our body can have a direct impact on our mood, energy, and overall life satisfaction.
