I see clients on an individual basis as well as through group workshop sessions.  I work with teens, adults, and older adults who tend to be empaths and highly sensitive people (HSPs) who experience anxiety, depression, stress, and overwhelming emotions.  My clinical work has also encompassed working with clients who were dealing with relationship issues, low self-confidence, chronic illness/pain, declining mental and physical health, isolation, life transitions, and bereavement.

  • Anxiety/Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Self-Expression
  • Mindfulness
  • Setting Boundaries
  • Energy Work
  • Repetitive Thought Patterns
  • Career/Life Transitions
  • Trauma
  • Life Skills
  • Self-Awareness
  • Confidence Building
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Grief/Loss
  • Pet Loss

Individual Sessions
