Your intuition led you here, welcome!

Why you're here.

Your intuition has led you here because one, possibly more, of the following applies to you...

You yearn for peace, balance, and lasting joy. You want to heal and feel like yourself again. You want to learn healthy ways to manage your emotions. You want to feel better! But currently... you're having a hard time sleeping. You can't seem to relax. You find it difficult to stop your racing & worrisome thoughts. You experience migraine headaches. Your body is tense, especially in your back, neck, and shoulder areas. Your productivity at work or school is plummeting. You cannot focus. You feel overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. Lately you've been moody, impatient, and less engaged with your loved ones. You feel tired and fatigued even if you've had a full nights rest. You don't talk about your true feelings. You hold everything in while pretending that you're okay. You tend to go against your authentic self by engaging in actions that are designed to impress others and gain their acceptance/approval. You have goals, but you don't have the drive, discipline, or confidence to work towards them. You feel like you are being pulled in a million different directions. You have a hard time saying "no", setting boundaries, or asking for help. Rarely do you take time to yourself or engage in self-caring activities.

 

You are stressed. You are unhappy. You feel unfulfilled.

However, you are also ready to free yourself from the hold that stress has on your life so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive. You're yearning for a life that is balanced with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun. You want better for yourself and you know better is possible.

 

Recently, you admitted to yourself that you're are feeling a little lost and would really like to have someone guide you on your journey towards mental wellness. Good news, your intuition has brought you to the right place!

Who am I...

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Yoga Teacher. I believe optimal wellness is achieved when mind, body, and spirit are consistently nourished. When requested, my sessions blend yoga, mindfulness, and meditation with traditional psychotherapy.  As a Stress Management Specialist, I help those who are stressed relax their mind and body by teaching them effective and holistic stress management skills. In current times we are all overloaded by the demands of raising children, stressful effects of technology and social networking, managing our careers, multitasking, dealing with family, trying to maintain a social life, and attempting to find time for self-caring activities. You are in need of a therapist that can help you manage your mental health, set boundaries, find your balance, and create your life worth living. I'm that therapist!

My work is personal and purposeful. I'll create a safe space for you to be vulnerable, honest, and get uncomfortable (which is required for growth). In this space we'll explore your core beliefs, improve your self-awareness, identify your self-sabotaging behaviors, refine your perspective, replace the negative thoughts/beliefs holding you back, learn effective strategies to manage stress, improve your confidence, learn how to overcome your fears and work on healing from your past. I want to help you experience joy and live a life authentically aligned with your values, standards, priorities, and dreams!

How to work with me.

Mental Health
Therapy

My specialities are stress management and maternal mental health. However, I also meet with those experiencing general mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, moodiness, grief, anger, and race-based stress. In therapy we'll explore your issues and develop an action plan to improve your mental health. By working with me you will unearth your personal power, reestablish your confidence, assert your right to live authentically, and learn healthier ways to manage your thoughts, emotions, and self-sabotaging behaviors. Let's get started!

Yoga

Yoga sessions with me are tailored for mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Yoga releases physical and emotional blockages caused by stress, unprocessed emotions, depression, and modern day "busyness". Yoga sessions focus on relaxation, energy clearing, and emotional release. Sessions include guided meditation, and incorporate vibrational singing bowls.

Guided Meditation

Large numbers of people are suffering due to uncertainty, anxiety, and modern day busyness. Many of us find it easy to get mentally caught up in doubts and fears. It is no surprise that we are searching for something substantial that can provide real peace and contentment; meditation is that thing! Meditation is recommended for everything from relaxation, health, and relationship enrichment to sports and business performance enhancement. As we relax deeply our mind becomes more clear and we flow into a state of mindfulness. Meditation helps us get to know ourselves better.
