Life can feel overwhelming.

Your mind and body may not feel like they are on the same team.

You may feel out of step with the world or on the margins of your own life.

You may feel like 'too much' or 'not enough' in your relationships.

Perhaps you feel like there are parts of yourself that you need to hide or do not fit.

You may even feel like you are failing at life, lacking direction, not living up to your potential, or that you just can't get it together no matter what you do.

Do any of these ring true?

There is another way.

Particularly in times of loss, transition, change, or added stress, protective parts of ourselves get activated in ways that can feel confusing, frustrating, or painful. Old wounds can feel fresh again, and unexpected strong feelings can arise.

What are a few ways this could show up?

  • Chronic exhaustion

  • Sleep difficulties

  • Issues around food or substances

  • Feeling 'zoned out', numb, or finding yourself endlessly scrolling

  • Heightened sensitivities, overwhelm, or feeling always 'on edge'

  • Bodily symptoms, such as unexplained pain, feeling sick, or digestive issues

  • Trouble managing relationships

  • Self-harm or suicidal thoughts

You may feel like you've tried everything and nothing has stuck. You may feel like you should be able to cope, so you must try harder, push yourself more, and change yourself through force of will.

I am here to tell you: you are enough.

What I offer is a collaborative space to begin healing your relationship with yourself. This is a space not just of challenge, but of respite from external pressures where you can cultivate self-compassion, reclaim connection to yourself and your community, and restore a sense of wholeness. When you start working with yourself rather than against yourself, that is when the magic happens.

You can learn more about me and how I work here and here.

When you are ready, you can schedule a free, no obligation 20-minute initial consultation here.
