Through an approach that integrates mind, body, and emotions, I specialize in helping high achieving and sensitive millennial women to break the cycle of depression, anxiety, burnout, and address work-life imbalances.

I understand the unique challenges you face in a fast-paced world where expectations are high and personal needs are often overlooked.

Together, we will create space for you to get in touch with yourself,  your needs and even your desires.  In working with me, clients find themselves having the confidence to make decisions that align with their values and lead to their desired change.

Women face unique struggles in relation to the way we are conditioned to be givers, to show up perfectly and the myth that we must do it all.  I work with women struggling with self-doubt & imposter syndrome, empowering you to thrive while honoring your sensitivity and ambition.  

I collaborate with high achievers to go from overwhelmed, burned out and depressed to grounded, confident and in alignment with themselves and their decisions.

Start trusting yourself and feel how worthy you are.

IFS & EMDR THerapy for women

As a dedicated therapist, I have advanced training and specialize in using Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as primary modalities.  My approach is empathetic and tailored to your specific experiences, providing a safe space to explore your thoughts and emotions.

IFS helps you understand and harmonize the different parts of your internal world, allowing you to achieve a sense of inner balance and self-compassion. By identifying and addressing conflicting parts of yourself, IFS facilitates personal growth and emotional healing, enabling you to navigate life’s complexities with greater ease.

EMDR, on the other hand, is a powerful technique designed to help you process and heal from past traumas and negative experiences. By using bilateral stimulation, EMDR allows your brain to reprocess distressing memories and reduce their emotional impact. This can lead to significant relief from anxiety, stress, and other emotional burdens, helping you build resilience and move forward with confidence.

Together, these modalities will help you navigate the complexities of your career, relationships, and self-identity, empowering you to thrive while honoring your sensitivity and ambition. We will work to overcome self-doubt and imposter syndrome, enabling you to embrace your achievements and potential. Discover the transformative power of IFS and EMDR and embark on a journey towards a more harmonious and empowered life.


You’ll leave sessions integrating:

  • Emotional resilience – learn to trust yourself and that you can handle whatever life throws your way

  • How to say no and let go of people pleasing

  • Heal from past trauma & live in the present


  •  Learn how to be present and mindful in everyday life

  • How to treat yourself with compassion (even when you mess up)

  • Lower levels of anxiety and depression


  • Learn to stop ignoring your pain and pretending like everything is okay 

  • Ability to cope with difficult emotions with greater ease

  • Motivate yourself with kindness instead of harsh criticism

  • Tune into your own inner wisdom to make decisions aligned with your values


Doing “the work” is not fixing yourself.
It’s showing up for yourself.
Discovering new parts of yourself.
And loving all the parts of yourself, even the “messy” ones.
