Dear Potential Client, 

Are you ready for something new and different? Good, because I'm not your average therapist. My focus to help people with high-stress levels, busy lifestyles, anxiety, depression, past traumas, and complex family dynamics, is unique.

I rarely just sit, nod, and ask, “Can you tell me more?” or “How does that make you feel?”  That’s just not my style. 

I bring a distinctive touch to mental health counseling, blending my education, training, and personal approach. With a conversational style that's easy-going, casual, and connected, I aim to build a strong therapeutic relationship. Think of me as your go-to sounding board, your trusted listening ear, and your partner on this therapeutic journey for some long-lasting changes.

I offer a deep commitment to you: providing a supportive and therapeutic environment for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, engage in deep inner work, and make positive, lasting changes in your life. Through engaging in profound inner work, we can delve into self-discovery and implement effective changes, fostering a better sense of self and life satisfaction. 

I create a safe space for you to share and process your experiences, which is an essential aspect of mental health support. This approach deepens your healing process, ensuring we get the results you're looking for.

I love the life I’ve created, and I am eager to help you create yours! I truly love what I do, and I feel passionate about supporting you in creating a life you love.

To be fully transparent, I am deeply invested in my inner work, which is one core aspect that sets me apart from many others. I have my own therapist (there’s no shame in that!), and I participate in therapist consultation groups and a business mastermind group for female entrepreneurs. I have a writing mentor (I’m currently drafting a memoir), and I engage in my holistic and spiritual practices regularly. 

When not working, I love spending time on my yoga mat, writing, reading, connecting with my soul sisters, and spending time with my long-term partner. Along with all that, plus being on a healing journey of my lived experiences of trauma, stress, depression, and chronic physical health conditions (which I’ve blogged about openly), I’m not your average therapist.

So, let's shatter the traditional therapeutic mold and craft a journey that's uniquely yours. Together, we'll create a safe space where you feel heard, supported, and on the path to wholeness and well-being.

I’m excited to meet you!

With gratitude,

My Letter to You
