Using a gentle, encouraging approach, I offer a supportive space for you to explore the emotions and experiences that shape who you are.
Whether you’ve been in therapy before or are just getting started, welcome. I’m glad you’re here! Pursuing therapy is an act of love — for your past, present, and future selves; for your relationships; and for your life’s unfolding. It is a way of saying, “My needs matter as much as the needs of those around me. My mental health is no less important than my physical health. My potential for growth is greater than the sum of my previous failures.”
Together we can arrive at solutions that facilitate greater self-insight and committed action that aligns with your values.
At A Soul Awake Psychotherapy, LLC, I view therapy as an active partnership in which your needs and preferences lead the way. Relying on an integrative model, my clinical approach draws from acceptance and commitment, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness-based, and holistic approaches.
By building relationships on genuine warmth, I foster an environment in which you can experience renewed confidence in your strengths.
My greatest fulfillment comes through empowering women to uncover the parts of themselves that are too often neglected: The wise and self-compassionate parts; The confident, assertive, grounded parts; The resilient and the self-advocating parts that are only just emerging. I’ll encourage you to welcome each of these facets of yourself with openness and compassion so you can learn to flourish in the face of life’s hardships.
I’ll invite you to become more accepting of your experience while quieting the inner voice of self-judgment.
Central to our work will be the development of meaningful self-care strategies tailored to your unique strengths and interests. When you encounter your should’ve-been-, could’ve-been-, and what-if-selves, I’ll anchor you back in the present where we can focus on what needs healing. As our work progresses, we’ll examine the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to your difficulties. By shifting your thinking and response patterns, you’ll learn to form healthier ways of having your needs met.
I hope to be a part of your personal transformation as you make meaningful changes to live with greater ease.
It’s incredibly rewarding to witness a client’s growth as she releases old ways of living that no longer serve her. Therapy isn’t always easy, but when you can begin to see the space for transformation that opens up by working through your concerns, that is when you can get in touch with your deepest self and make meaningful changes.
