Message to clients

As a highly-sensitive, working mom of two young children, I know how overwhelming life can become. We all struggle and need help at times. I am here to listen to you without judgment and get you on a path toward feeling more like yourself again.

My goal is to help you start feeling better as quickly as possible, while also working toward more long-term healing. We will work together to find creative ways to address your specific challenges. Most of my clients come away from our first couple of sessions with some very practical and effective coping strategies they can apply in their daily life.

I believe that with the right support, tools, and knowledge, everyone can achieve better versions of themselves. Therapy is an important step in caring for yourself and those around you, and you deserve to feel better! I hope you'll reach out to schedule a free consultation. I would be honored to support you.
