Midlife, or middle-age, is a developmental stage of life occurring between ages of 40 and 60. Although midlife is an exciting time for self-discovery and personal growth, it can also stir up challenging and uncomfortable emotions (a.k.a. “midlife crisis”). Inherent in any transition is the process of change, which can be difficult, even when necessary and positive. I’m here to help you navigate your midlife transition with clarity, understanding, and newfound purpose

Life in today’s overly-busy and hectic world is stressful. Our brains get inundated daily with messages that we have to be more and do more, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, anxious and “stressed out.” You might feel like you want to jump out of your own skin but don’t know how to find relief. Counseling provides you with effective tools to manage your anxiety, lower stress, and slow down so that you can enjoy a more balanced life.

WOMEN′S ISSUES

Perfectionism. Care-taking. Relationship Concerns. Midlife Crisis. Quarterlife Crisis.

As women, we often feel like we have to be all things to all people- taking care of everybody while putting ourselves last. In our quest to be the best co-worker, mom, friend, wife, or partner; we lose touch with our needs and end up feeling disconnected and emotionally drained. I provide guidance and a safe space where you can learn to let go of perfectionism, quiet your inner critic, care for others without sacrificing yourself, and feel empowered to live a more joyful and fulfilling life.
