Are you unsatisfied with your relationships or work? Are you looking for support with chosen or unchosen transitions? Are you having trouble making changes in your life? I help people explore their needs and values, and to feel empowered to set healthy boundaries with significant others, family members, managers and colleagues. I love helping others clarify their values and find direction, and I'm here to support you at a pace that feels right for you.
Empowering women--and men--to understand their experiences to the extent that cultural influences have played a role is an element of my practice. We'll explore the ways in which your life might be changed by living in a way that is true to yourself by tapping your strengths.
I help clients see how their strengths can be applied to make changes in their lives. We'll explore not only what has worked well in the past, but what may have worked well at one time but is no longer serving you, and work toward change.
We'll examine the way you view yourself, others, your relationships, and the conventions in our culture. By taking small, measured steps to new behaviors in a supportive environment, you can practice awareness and positive change in a safe space.
Anxiety can be one of the clues we use to know we need to make adjustments in our lives. When you feel like anxiety is getting in the way of your goals and quality of life, I can help you understand the source of those feelings, find tools to work with anxious feelings, and to work with this emotion.
Women face unique barriers, often due to cultural expectations. Family, work, burnout, self-esteem, transitions from motherhood to empty-nesting, the choice to forego marriage or not to have children, challenges of retirement: these all look different for women, and we'll explore what they look like for you as the individual person you are, in the context of what you would like from your life.
My professional expertise in office settings and holistic view of workplaces as unique systems lends me a unique perspective. I combine my experience in the workforce with my approach to therapy to support you as an individual, focusing on the goals and challenges that keep you true to yourself.
Life transitions and change, whether chosen or otherwise, can bring feelings of anxiety, depression, and feeling trapped. I'm here to support you as we explore potentially difficult choices and actions to find confident ways of being true to yourself.
I support clients with depression by providing a safe place to bring your vulnerability, meeting you where you are and moving forward at the pace you need. I find that setting small, attainable goals that we work through nonjudgmentally helps many of my clients with depression. Throughout the process, I help you to feel understood and seen.
