My Approach

When you face changes in your life it can spark a mixture of emotions.

Your response might be excitement to move into the unknown, or maybe concern over what change might entail. Change demands individual growth, taking necessary steps to use and build on the capabilities you already have, but it’s hard work! Life is always changing though, so if you’re caught in not knowing how to step into changing with it, then let’s work to get you feeling comfortable with growth. Relationships within change can also be a struggle! Friendships, family dynamics, companionship, your own relationship with your self- they’re meant to be supportive but that isn’t always the case. Not feeling like you have a healthy support system in your corner can be overwhelming and isolating.

If you’re facing a sudden change, one that you didn’t choose or prepare for, then let’s get you feeling grounded and connected! We’ll ask together, “Is this healthy for me, or not?” There is beauty in community and knowing you don’t have to face change on your own. I would be glad to join the people in your life who hope to see you improve, one step at a time in forward motion towards wellness. Change is scary, but you have resources within you to embrace change. Plus, we’ll work to improve and increase your support network, leaving you feeling connected and celebrated in relationships.

Take your next step toward growth.
