Healing Through Connection

Individual Counseling

For individuals desiring to heal their emotional wounds so they can feel calm, confident in themselves and connected to their loved ones.

I wonder...

Have you felt discouraged and stuck lately despite trying to change things on your own?

Are you wondering how to manage all your responsibilities + take care of yourself?

What feels “in control” your emotions & fears OR you?

Is it difficult to break away from negative thoughts?

Do you notice that things add up and then boil over, such that you get irritated easily, raise your voice, don't stay calm and/ or get aggressive?

Are you wondering how communication can occur that leaves everyone feeling heard, seen, respected and understood?

You are in the right place!
I am all about Empowering individuals to heal, learn + live the life they desire!

My Philosophy

You just need to have a Desire & Willingness to Change...

I'll provide the Confidence + Steps!

Can I really heal?

Yes! You can heal!
 But let's chat about a couple things first...

Sometimes living as your best version of yourself is tough.
Maybe you are too hard on yourself, your self-esteem is struggling, and you don't have a support system to lift you up when you are low. Ideally, you want to give yourself grace but you don’t. Becoming more self aware sounds interesting, but the actual process of diving deep and figuring out how to overcome past hurt and fears seems rather unenjoyable. So you avoid it.

You might feel overwhelmed because you have lots of demands and you aren’t sure how to manage.
Taking care of yourself is important to you, but you may not know how to get your needs met or even how to make time and space for it. Your body needs calm to get out of the cycle of surviving day to day. But, maybe you don't have calming strategies that actually work for you. So you live in stress and survival mode.

Anxiety has the driver seat in your life.
Often I hear clients say "ahh I just feel so out of control". What is going on? Either a feeling or fear is in the driver seat and has control. But this does not have to be the case. I love CBT therapy for a reason. It says that thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all interconnected. So if you change one, you change the other two.

Believe me, I’ve been there.
It's why I am so passionate about what I do. I've been in your shoes and I've learned HOW to manage stress, overcome anxiety, and feel in control again!

And yes, healing is possible for YOU too!

Whatever you case may be, I want you to know you aren't alone. 
You deserve the time to focus on your own needs and goals in the presence of a compassionate listener.
