Areas of Focus

I love talking about stress, anxiety, self-doubt and everything in-between! The following are some of my favorite areas to explore when we are processing through your current challenges and concerns: 


Anxiety, Worry & Stress Reduction

Are you an overwhelmed and anxious over-thinker with terrible stress keeping you up at night?

Communication, Boundaries & Self-Expression

Do you have wants and needs but find it hard to express these? Do you want to say "no" but feel like you're letting others down?

Self-Care & Life Balance

Do you cringe when you hear the term "self-care?" Do you find yourself spending more time on Netflix than doing things that benefit your mental health? 

You want to take care of yourself, but you're stuck in old patterns of unhealthy coping. I get it.

Are you struggling to connect with others in deep and meaningful ways? Are you in need of a support system, but feel like this doesn't currently exist? 

Relationships are incredibly important!
