Overcoming obstacles through empowerment and compassion.

When we reach a crossroads in life, we might feel stressed or anxious because of the life transition. Together we can collaborate to heal stuck points. This might include things such as a change in career, relocation, changing family dynamics, multicultural concerns, adjustment to college, racial/inequality stressors, concerns around sexual orientation, or reaching personal milestones. Regardless of the reasons, I use a strength-based approach. In sessions we will work as a team to introduce perspectives that will help you connect with your true self. You deserve to feel heard, find your voice, and overcome obstacles through empowerment and compassion. I believe in taking a collaborative approach to helping clients reach their goals. I’m passionate about creating resources for individuals struggling with anxiety and life transitions, and am interested in participating in workshops, speaking engagements, webinars, and podcasts. If you’d like to schedule a consultation or appointment with me, please send an appointment request or email to I look forward to hearing from you.
