I’ve been learning to live bravely and with a deep sense of my worth, and I want that for you. I want to help you if work is stressful and unsatisfying, communication with others is a struggle, you’re often feeling anxious or low, and/or it’s been hard to be hopeful about your life. I want to talk if living according to your values and desires is constrained by injustice and toxicity, which causes you to lose sight of your worth. You want to have an easier time, and beyond that, to find joy, wellness, confidence, and personal power. You want more courage and self compassion, and to feel excited about your life.

My work is feminist, grounded in the belief that many of our wounds are caused by injustice. I ask thought-provoking questions, provide sharp insights, and offer analyses about the social context. With a warm, kind, and sometimes direct approach, I help you to process and manage difficult feelings and offer you tools for you to empower yourself.

Life can be better than it is right now, and you're capable of more than you think. If you’ve resonated with anything here, then I look forward to talking with you about your needs. Courage begets courage, and you’re on your way.
