Retired People Pleaser to Relatable Therapist
Since a young age, I have always been empathetic in nature and very in tune with other people's emotions. While this can be considered a gift, I have also learned the hard way that it brings it's challenges. As I grew older, it became more and more difficult to separate my voice from everyone else's who influenced me. My personal journey has led me to work really hard at breaking through the patterns and limitations imposed on me by my past, society, culture, and most importantly myself. Today, I am passionate about helping you do the same through self-discovery and fostering genuine relationships in your life. There is always space for you to be your genuine authentic self!
Teens (14+) and Adults
Often times my clients seek therapy feeling a sense of disconnection in their lives, experiences, and relationships. Together, we will create a safe space that fosters self-compassion, growth, and healing so you can step into your power and recognize the strength and value you hold within. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, low-self esteem, or are just not feeling yourself, I will help you through your transformation journey to break free from the pressures, life changes, and/or expectations placed upon you by family, society, culture, and most importantly YOURSELF!
Relationships are hard work! Couples Therapy can be a useful tool for relationships of all stages. Whether newly-dating or in a long term marriage, navigating a betrayal or separation, struggling with communication or intimacy, or simply navigating life's demands, it is common for all types of couples to experience hardships and conflict that impact the relationship. Couples therapy invites each partner to take a deep dive inward & commit to doing the work on yourself that will in turn foster the meaningful and healthy partnership you are seeking. Many couples want to succeed but don't know where to start. Within weeks, I will help you gain tools to create the thriving connection you want + deserve.
Usui Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki, Universal Life Force Energy, is a healing technique that promotes relaxation and reduces stress and anxiety through distant or gentle touch. Reiki is received in a quiet room with soft playing music and may include weighted eye pillows, crystals, sound healing, and any other mindfulness techniques as intuitively needed and discussed to improve the flow and balance of your energy and chakra's in order to support healing. Reiki techniques can also be utilized to clear and release deep-seated issues and traumas, release energetic chords, and heal one's past, present, and future. All sessions include an intuitive evaluation of your energy, mind, and body and brief time for discussion after the healing. This service can be provided virtually or in-person.
Step into your authenticity through crystal healing! Crystals are vibrational and when we infuse them with intention, we create a symbiotic bond. Each crystal charged with your energy, can be used as a tool to support you in creating the transformation you seek. I can assure you that a lot of positivity and care goes into the selection of each crystal that we provide!
I offer both in-person and virtual psychotherapy sessions. Virtual therapy is designed to meet you where you are. In today's world where online platforms are only continuing to grow, teletherapy allows for more flexibility and convenience. It is the most time efficient option if you live a busy life! Clients often express that being in the familiar environment of their home, or a preferred location, increase their level of comfort in opening up and sharing their thoughts and feelings with their therapist.
Teletherapy sessions take place through online video calls through a secure, confidential platform called Simple Practice. This means there are extra protections that guard your personal information.
For Teletherapy sessions you will need either a computer, laptop, tablet, or cell phone that has internet capability. I will provide you with the instructions and answer any questions ahead of time to get things started. I strive to provide you with a beneficial and engaging telehealth experience!
