My Philosophy "Live Life Authentically" "Be yourself, everyone else is taken."- Oscar Wilde I am here to help you become the best authentic version of yourself whether it be through coaching or therapy. I believe life is a series of transitions within relationships, sexuality, identity, school, and careers. During these transitions life coaching and therapy can be a source of support, discovery, healing, and prevention.
I think of life coaching and therapy as a place to gather tools. These tools can help you identify your feelings, better understand yourself and manage uncomfortable and sometimes challenging emotions. When you're feeling confused or stressed therapy can be the place where you don't have to know all the answers, be vulnerable, and find support while also building skills and finding clarity. My success coaching teaches the skills, techniques, and strategies necessary to prevent mental health breakdowns and build success resilence nessary to achieve long term career goals.
