Exceeding Expectations One Client at a Time
Hello! It's wonderful to have you here!
I am passionate about supporting women who are anxious, overwhelmed with life, and feel stuck, learn to navigate the ebbs and flows of life with greater ease by becoming more resilient, empowered, and connected (aka 'life proof').
WHY COUNSELING and HYPNOTHERAPY?
I decided to become a counselor and hypnotherapist because of my personal experiences in transforming and overcoming my own grief, anxiety, and trauma, as well as shifting my mindset and changing limiting beliefs. I am committed to helping other people do the same.
Between the age of 16-21 I experienced the death loss of four close family members and three childhood friends. My sweet dog, who I had gotten for my 10th birthday, also died. My feelings of sadness, confusion, anger, isolation, and intense grief, manifested itself in negative ways including headaches, nightmares, and anxiety. It was not until I received professional help, including hypnotherapy, that I overcame my emotional pain. The combination of counseling, hypnotherapy, and my determination to improve my well-being helped me to heal my invisible wounds. It wasn't until some years later, though, that I had an ‘aha’ moment and knew I wanted to be a professional helper and healer. The challenges we face can weave their way into life in unexpected ways.
I am passionate about...
helping people become emotionally healthy and heal from the inside out
helping people live with more inner peace and calm
normalizing mental and emotional health
supporting people in embodying their unique light
uplifting people to live an empowered, resilient, and soul-centered life
I take my job as your hypnotherapist/coach/counselor very seriously. I am committed to establishing rapport and a relationship founded in trust and safety. I listen. I validate. I believe in you. I encourage you. You are unique and special and there is no one else like YOU in the world. I'd be honored to accompany you as you dive deep and emerge as the you who has been in there all along. Allow me to help you shine boldly and brightly in the world and live with greater inner peace.
My therapeutic approach is unique, integrative, and holistic. I support the entirety of a person - mind, body, and soul - through evidence-based, practical, transformative, and spiritual approaches. My goal is to support you as you heal your past, become more connected in the present, and to equip you with greater self understanding, tools, and resources to gracefully live your life going forward.
MORE ABOUT ME
I was born and raised in Boulder County Colorado. I received my B.A. in International Business, a Master of Education, and a Master of Counseling. I have completed training in Hypnotherapy, grief work, EMDR, MBSR, and others. Throughout my years as a counselor I have been honored to work with individuals age 3-96, and have helped countless individuals transform and overcome their anxiety.
I entered my profession in order to be a support for people to receive one-on-one, uninterrupted, deep(er) support that they might not otherwise experience in life. My personal experiences inspire, inform, and ignite the work I do. After working in a number of other fields, I am thankful to have found my calling in the counseling field where I can use my experiences, abilities, and training to help support others.
Life is full of changes and transitions and I am passionate about helping people process and heal from their loss(es) and struggles, and live an empowered life. To me, positive individual change impacts and benefits the world like a ripple effect. I also believe there is always hope, even amidst the hard times.
Outside the counseling profession, I have the pleasure of enjoying life with my husband, son, daughter, and dog. Music, sports, play time, and self-care are constants! I am also known to love decaf coffee, elephants, peacocks, manatees, sunny days, animal print, and paper goods. :)
