It takes effort and awareness to learn the art of embracing who we are in each part of our lives. Knowing when to take off one hat and put on the next can be challenging. Especially when each hour of every day seems to be swirling by and blurring into the next.
As a career-driven, high-achieving woman; a mother, a counselor, a coach, a partner and a friend, I understand the many roles we play and have to balance in life.
Some roles we have created ourselves, some we feel were created for us, sometimes we aren’t sure.
So that’s where I fit in. I help women figure out their various roles and decide which they want to keep, which need some fine tuning and which they need to let go.
I know first hand the importance of seeking emotional support from a professional. I’m very open with my clients about this. Not only do I practice what I preach, but I regularly seek counseling and coaching myself. It’s not a sign of weakness - it’s how we grow. We’re not meant to do it all alone!
For ten plus years as a counselor, I’ve assisted people in finding peace, improving overall wellness and increasing happiness in relationships.
Using evidence-based counseling approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing I teach women the most important part of getting emotionally healthy: getting to know, love and trust yourself! This improves all the relationships in your life.
