My Ideal Client

My typical clients include Compassionate Professional Women, Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Financial Professionals & Advisors, Licensed therapists in Private Practice, Executives & Positions of Responsibility, and Creative Professionals. These clients possess an innate drive for change, are immersed in a journey of self-discovery seeking further guidance, are prepared to analyze their contribution to their discomfort, are open to novel strategies, and show commitment to therapeutic tasks.

What I Specialize In

Immersed in the crossroads of business and mental health, I am known as an expert in fostering fierce self-confidence and strong financial mindsets. With a two-decade journey through the finance sector, I have a keen sense for the intricacies faced by professionals and entrepreneurs in their personal and career roles. By melding my education in therapeutic counseling with my business acumen, I have carved out a unique specialty that ignites my passion. My forthright style and focus on action are attributes that are greatly valued and sought after. Endless head-nodding doesn’t serve either of us, so you can trust I will always be respectfully real with you. My areas of specialty include Perfectionism & People-Pleasing, Imposter Syndrome & Professional Doubt, Therapy for Entrepreneurs, Professional Burn Out, Stress, & Anxiety, Assertive Communication, Confidence Building, Boundaries (at home & at work), Financial Therapy & Money Scripts, and the Cultural Intersection of Female & Boss.

My Approach to Helping

Every therapeutic encounter is customized to suit each individual client. In order to delve deeper into your narrative, I intentionally keep my client list limited. While acknowledging that healing forms a crucial part of the therapeutic process, I prompt clients to commence proactive measures towards their well-being right from the onset. Clients tend to find this approach rewarding, experiencing enhanced satisfaction and progress, as it enables them to comprehensively address their past, present, and future. In addition, client involvement in devising the treatment plan fosters a sense of self-governance in each session. Together, we will embark on an all-encompassing exploration of your professional and personal life, thereby helping you regain your lost confidence and tranquility. I hold the belief that the key to living a fully successful life is embracing our entire selves - the chaotic parts we shy away from exposing as much as the parts we deem competent and worthy.

Techniques I Use


  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) External link

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of psychotherapy that uses mindfulness and behavioral strategies to help individuals engage in values-based actions. ACT encourages the acceptance of difficult thoughts and feelings, rather than trying to eliminate them, and promotes commitment to personal goals despite these challenges.

  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy External link

    Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a goal-oriented therapeutic approach that emphasizes solutions rather than problems. It focuses on present and future goals, rather than past issues. SFBT promotes resilience and empowerment, helping clients discover their strengths and resources to create positive change in their lives.

  • Career Counseling External link

    Career counseling is a process that helps individuals explore career options and make informed career decisions. It provides tools to understand skills, interests, values, and personality to align them with suitable career paths. This guidance can help in career transitions, job searches, and dealing with job-related stress or dissatisfaction.

  • Existential External link

    Existential therapy is a philosophical approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes personal responsibility and the search for meaning in life. It explores existential themes like freedom, isolation, death, and meaninglessness. The aim is to help clients confront these existential concerns, and find meaning and purpose in their lives.

  • Financial Therapy External link

    Financial therapy merges finance with emotional support to help individuals understand and change their money behaviors. It addresses psychological, emotional, and relational hurdles related to money. It's beneficial for managing financial stress, resolving money conflicts, and developing healthy financial habits for financial well-being.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    Personal growth refers to the process of self-improvement and self-discovery, aimed at enhancing one's knowledge, skills, and self-awareness. It involves setting and pursuing personal goals, cultivating positive habits, and fostering emotional intelligence. This lifelong journey of development contributes to overall wellbeing and fulfillment.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety is viewed as an emotional response characterized by feelings of tension, worry, and physical changes like increased blood pressure. It can be triggered by a specific situation or be generalized in nature. Therapists use techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and exposure therapy to help clients manage and reduce anxiety symptoms.

  • Codependency External link

    Codependency, often manifesting as people-pleasing or perfectionism, involves unhealthy emotional dependency on others for validation and fear of disapproval. Individuals may neglect their needs to satisfy others, leading to self-esteem issues. Therapy helps recognize these patterns, establishing boundaries and promoting self-care for healthier relationships.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    Self-esteem in entrepreneurs is crucial as it influences risk-taking, resilience, and success. It involves a balanced self-view, acknowledging strengths and accepting weaknesses. Low self-esteem can lead to self-doubt and hinder performance. Therapy can bolster self-esteem, promoting positive self-perception and coping strategies.

  • Financial Therapy External link

    Financial therapy integrates finance and mental health, addressing emotional, psychological, and behavioral aspects of money management. It aims to enhance financial well-being by identifying and addressing financial stressors or unhealthy money habits, thereby fostering healthier financial behaviors and improving overall quality of life.
