​​A Breathing Space for Women

​Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my practice! This is an important first step in the process of seeking wellness and creating change in your life. While beginning therapy is exciting and refreshing for some people, for others it may feel overwhelming and scary. I am happy to work with you wherever you are in your journey... we will start where you are most comfortable. Together we will create a safe and trusting relationship that will set a foundation for personal growth and healing.

At thewell for women, I thrive to create a safe space for women in all stages of life to breathe, reflect, heal, and ultimately challenge themselves to create meaningful change in their lives. There are various challenges women often experience throughout life, including identity concerns, navigating work and family responsibilities, anxiety and/or depression, relationship issues, body image concerns, considering the entrance into motherhood, fertility concerns, birth challenges, parenting concerns and many others. It was in my own struggles during the birth of my oldest son and the transition that followed, that really sparked me to dedicate myself to being a place of understanding and encouragement for other women. It is my passion to connect with and help other women know they are not alone in their struggles and that they have the inner strength and resiliency to overcome hurts and create the life they desire.

My person-centered approach to therapy draws upon the strengths and needs of each individual, honoring their unique experiences and values. In working with me you will find I am down-to-earth, genuine and straightforward, and I offer a safe and accepting space. 

I invite you to contact me any time with questions you may have to determine if we are a good fit for therapy.
