“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” — Anais Nin
- Are you struggling with depression and anxiety?

Growth can be challenging, and we should not have to do it alone. It is a great honor for me to accompany you toward more ease and joy. I bring compassion, mindful presence, curiosity, and heartfelt acceptance to my work with adults, children, and families.
The tension you feel in your body and mind can be valuable sources of information that point toward your underlying needs. With busy lives, we rarely have the opportunity to attend to these sources. My intention is to listen deeply so that we can take care of your underlying needs.
Together, we can work with your experiences to bring you into more connection with your wisest self, enabling you to clarify your goals and create more of what you want. I use a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach to help you get to where you want to be.
Sometimes I like to provide my clients with take-home tools such as Mindfulness and Self Compassion exercises. I have found that making small adjustments, such as incorporating short, regular practices, can really make a difference in the quality of our days.
We can also look at wellness for you and your family to see where some shifts in routine might make a difference in the health of your family. For example, where can we find more space for play and relaxation during your week?
I am delighted to offer you an accepting and comfortable place where you feel at ease showing up just as you are. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
