My Approach

Walking down the path of self-discovery can have many obstacles– from self-doubt and past trauma to feeling misunderstood by those around you. Whether you’re struggling with setting your own routines, financial burdens, academic expectations, or the uncertainty of the future, these circumstances can leave you with a handful of feelings. Guilt, exhaustion, doubt, anxiety, and isolation– floating in a space where life may feel dull, empty, or even like someone else’s. Such feelings can manifest themselves as anxious thoughts, loss of excitement, and prioritizing others’ needs over your own. Believing that you’re the expert of your own story is where finding yourself and living the life you deserve begins.

Take your next step toward growth.
