Finding Your Center Counseling

Thriving in Every Day Life

Life is inherently stressful. Counseling can help you build skills and insight into ways to navigate life's challenges.

Whether you are coming out of a painful breakup, redefining your career path, navigating how to ask for what you need from a loved one, or creating a kinder relationship with yourself, therapy together can help you build self-confidence, self-awareness, and stress management techniques. 

 

I specialize in working with entrepreneurs, millennials, and healing professionals (therapists/therapists-in-training, massage therapists, life coaches, yoga teachers, energy healers, etc.) to deepen care of yourself while simultaneously supporting others. Our sessions together emphasize mindfulness, spirituality, and building trust in your inner wisdom in times of challenge.

Sessions together can also support you to manage anxiety symptoms, practice self-acceptance, and step out of mainstream cultural norms to envision and create the career and relationships you have imagined. 

 

My ideal client is someone who wants to embody the badass they were born to be in work and relationships, is curious about creativity and spirituality, and longs to honor their wild and sacred heart.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Authentic Relationships

We were never taught Relationships 101 in high school. Having a space to explore what healthy communication looks like within friendships, family dynamics, and romantic relationships can deepen your connection and foster more joy, understanding, and connection in daily life.

Self-Esteem &

Self-Acceptance

The most important relationship we can cultivate is our relationship with our self. Learn to courageously love the messy, angry, powerful parts of what make you you. Learn how to be your own best friend, no matter what challenges life brings. Could it be that this messy, raw humanness is the center of your wild magic?

Grief, Loss, & Meaning Making

Holding space for the magnitude of grief after the loss of a loved one is easier to navigate with the help of another person. We can build space together to hold the intensity of this challenge while simultaneously navigating daily life. You deserve space to rest, heal, and integrate.

Spirituality & Religion

Whether you are looking to find what is sacred in daily life or looking to deepen your understanding of what your personal spiritual journey means to you, therapy can be a safe space to dive into conversations you may have wondered but never spoken aloud. Therapy together can be a container to anchor you to the Sacred Divine within you.
