    Your perfectly filtered life hides the void of joy, genuineness and connection

    It may feel a little silly, but you dream of getting to know the real you.  Allowing your true self to emerge feels like a luxury.  You’ve gotten so good at make believe that you feel lonely as triggers constantly invade your day.

    You’re too smart to hide from the truth: you’re scared of being known inside and out.

    And that is why sleep eludes you more and more. It’s because of this intense inner conflict that tears you apart and breaks you down more with each passing day.

    For so many years, you’ve colored between the lines, never straying from the familiar confines of external, predictable accomplishments that are under your control.

    But now that worn-out comfort of the way you used to cope has betrayed you, leaving you terrified you’ll never find true joy and feel connected

    You’ve endlessly searched for answers in wonderful Brene Brown books. Mindfulness and self-compassion float around your mind like ubiquitous companions, without concrete or practical translation to your everyday life.

    As eagerly as you open them, you disappointedly close them with a sigh, realizing yet another has failed to inspire lasting change. The promising descriptions give way to hollow and empty words that have no substantial meaning in your life.  Not yet anyway.

    You’re beginning to feel ready to travel a new journey

    Leaving behind emptiness and embracing COURAGE

    But you get stuck in figuring out how to find the right therapist. Even just thinking of it fills you with overwhelm. In fact, it feels similar to the awareness of the years slipping by with inner demons still running the show.

    You can’t afford to keep putting this off. And you’re scared you’ve already put it off too long.

    Therapy is...

    → A journey together rooted in understanding, trust & curiosity
    → Empowerment to make your own decisions
    → An opportunity to cultivate lasting change
    → Being truly see, heard and felt

    Therapy isn't...

    → A list of bullet points that tell you how to find happiness, love and joy
    → Advice-giving or telling you what to do
    → A quick fix or a Band-Aid.
    → Venting or chit-chatting (but sometimes that feels good for a few minutes)


    Life can be hard, in both expected and unexpected ways. So often due to tough childhood experiences, attachment wounding, and unhealthy relationships, we find ourselves torn apart into threads of ourselves.

    Our external success serves as a hollow box that securely holds the parts of us, yet it leaves us with a haunting sense of incompleteness and isolation. Deeply buried pieces of your pain may emerge at times, revealing their truths, only to again disappear beneath the surface when we ignore them.

    Then you return to feeling lost and unclear, unsure of what lies beneath the old, familiar feelings you have struggled with for so long. Therapy offers a chance for us to weave your story together, revealing the fullness of who you really are, beyond the brave face you show the world.

    Before Therapy:

    • You frequently say yes, when you mean no, stretching yourself too thin.
    • You secretly feel not good enough, and unlovable.
    • You struggle to soothe yourself, beyond the extra glass of wine.
    • You are exhausted from always trying to read others’ minds.
    • You shut down when you try to ask for what you need, filled with fear of rejection. Possibly not even knowing what you need
    • You struggle with respecting your own boundaries and having others respect your boundaries

    After Therapy:

    • You will learn to say no, when you mean no, without feeling guilty or worrying about hurting peoples’ feelings.
    • You will know self-love. You will learn to value yourself.
    • You will expand your definition of self-care beyond your monthly mani-pedi and massage.
    • You will stop wasting energy trying to read others’ minds.
    • You will learn to express your thoughts, feelings, and needs without shutting down.
    • You will appreciate the healthy boundaries you hold and those of the people in your life


    In our work together, either in my Orlando office or meeting virtually, we will help you understand and make sense of all that is happening so that you can have clarity and confidence. We will work towards feeling redemption in your life. We’ll walk together to heal your wounded past, so you can look forward to a life worth celebrating with a solid sense of who you are.

    I believe we all have a redemption story of hope and healing. With healing comes freedom. With freedom comes abundant joy and love. I would be honored to be part of your healing journey and redemption story.

    My clients elect to self-pay rather than use their insurance. I do not participate in any insurance panels. If you wish to use your insurance, you may pay for your services at the time of your appointment and request a receipt for services. If you plan to do this, check with your insurance first to determine if this is an option for you.

    I accept Health Savings Accounts HSA & FSA.

    I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

    • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
    • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
    • Does my insurance require me to see a provider on their panel?
    • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
    • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?


    I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment.

    Cancellation Policy

    If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.

    Any Other Questions

    Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
