Helping you find calm and connection

You find yourself wondering why life seems so difficult, why you feel so overwhelmed, especially when others seem to be having an easier time. You want to experience more peace, satisfaction, and connection in your day-to-day life. You want to understand the “why” but also want to know how to get better.

Sometimes people get stuck in old patterns of behavior. When we are distressed, we go into autopilot mode and revert back to limited ways of thinking, feeling, or functioning. We fight, fly, freeze, or fawn. With an outside perspective and someone to teach you skills, you can pull yourself out of that stuck place. I have been there myself so I want to offer my understanding and I want to help you feel better.

When people feel truly heard, understood, validated, and are given the tools, they can get out of that stuck place.

What it’s like to work with me:

My approach is to create a warm, welcoming environment where you feel truly heard and accepted for who you are. I will help you understand your current challenges and see them from a different perspective, collaborating with you on ideas for changing what’s not working in your life. I can help you get to the root of where your challenges started and then help you feel better by using the tools of mindfulness, self-compassion, self-acceptance, and emotion regulation. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, which is typically used to alleviate distress associated with trauma but also can be helpful to relieve other disturbances in your life.
