Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Through a relational, collaborative, and strength based approach, I assist women and teen girls in finding their balance and learning ways to communicate their voice in connection with others, and find their inner strengths using a mindfulness and embodied approach. I also help families and couples develop effective skills for communicating with one another.

My clinical areas of passion include; empowering women from diverse backgrounds in the many changes college, graduate school, career, relationships, family, and life bring. Including; developing a healthy relationship with your body, the skills needed to emotionally prepare for college and young adulthood, establishing and maintaining a healthy dating relationship. I also assist teen girls in making healthy choices around peer and dating relationships, helping high achievers find a balance with mind, body, and spirit, and establish healthy connections and communication between mothers and daughters. I also love helping new couples, newly engaged, or recently married in transforming their power struggles into a place of connection and empathy. In addition to my clinical practice, I provide presentations and workshops to adolescents, young women, colleges, and organizations that help women establish and develop confident and healthy relationships as they navigate their social, emotional, and academic worlds.
