TAKING THE FIRST STEP TO MOVE FORWARD

I believe change is possible when you can allow yourselves to make the first step and ask for help. One of my favorite quotes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”  I believe in creating a brave space and a comfortable environment for you to explore and learn more about yourself in authentic ways one step at a time.

My goal is to help you on your journey to self-awareness that begins with discovering your strengths, values, self-care, using tools to overcome or cope with stress, gain confidence, and set boundaries in order to improve clarity and create new meanings.

OWN YOUR STORY

Self-doubt, lack of motivation, sadness, constant worrying, resentment, and fear can impact how you feel about yourself as well as your outlook on life. In session, you and I will explore your thinking patterns, feelings, and experiences to help you connect to your story.  Through journaling and the tools learned, you will begin to reframe your thoughts through positive self-talk, manage emotions, and gain clarity on what matters to you.

HOW I HELP

With my experiences and specialties, I strive to motivate individuals to identify unhelpful thoughts, empower them to make value-based decisions, and learn new behaviors that best meets their needs.

MORE ABOUT ME

Fun and self-care are important to me! I enjoy spending time with family and friends for game nights, traveling with my husband, trying new recipes, enjoying Chicago’s beautiful lakefront, or cheering on Da Bears. I also enjoy “me” time with my cup of coffee or tea, a good book or watching my favorite TV series.
