I specialize in working with women and adolescents girls struggling in their relationships with themselves and others.
This struggle may show up in the following ways:
Body image issues
Low self esteem
Difficulty saying no
Critical self talk
"In any given moment, we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety."
- Abraham Maslow
You may have received a lot of messages in your life about how you "should" show up. You have taken those messages to heart. You are successful at what you do and really good at taking care of other people, but you rarely feel that it's enough.
You may replay conversations with others, analyzing what you said, or did, or what you didn't say. You may speak to yourself in ways that are critical and discouraging.
You may struggle to feel at home in your body. You may find yourself feeling angry with yourself because your body doesn't look the way it "should".
You may find yourself in relationships that feel unsatisfying. Your answer to this is to try harder, do better. But you still find yourself feeling unloved and unappreciated.
And now, you're ready for something different. What if you could feel at home in your body? What if your relationships felt reciprocal and you felt loved, cared for and supported? What if you could feel confident and fully engaged in your life? If you're ready to do this work, together we can change your life in these powerful ways.
I've worked with women on these specific struggles and many others over the last 10 years and the changes that we've created together have been life changing.
Places to Get Started
I believe the most important work we can do is to free ourselves from destructive patterns and move toward our potential. When we do this work, we invest in ourselves and the people we love. We create a ripple effect in the world.
My role as a therapist is to guide, support and encourage you in understanding your beliefs about yourself, others, and the world, and how those beliefs are helping or hindering you.
