Just like you, I feel deeply. I understand:
- The feeling that there is more to explore within you
- The desire to connect with your soul’s purpose and intention in this life
- That you have a tendency to not only carry your own issues, but everyone else’s too
- Your keen sense of picking up on other people’s feelings & the anxiousness that may result
- How you are always putting everyone else’s needs above your own
- Your very deeply caring and sensitive heart
For much of my life, I was a people pleaser, professional worrier (and good at it!) with a strong inner critic. As an introverted deep thinker, I also felt into the depths of my emotions. The issue was, I didn’t only feel my stuff, but I had what felt like a cursed ability to feel everyone else’s crap too. I was really good at putting all of my attention and energy toward others but rarely gave to myself – Until I had no choice because I burnt out with a capitol “B”.
Prior to learning self compassion, all of the meditation in the world wasn’t helping me channel the inner Zen I desperately tried to connect with. I was confused and disconnected from myself because I gave everything I had to everyone else. I even depleted myself of mental energy from taking on the problems of strangers! I was always sensitive and felt others’ emotions but I didn’t know how to not hold onto them.
For 20 years, I have worked with others like you to share the life changing process of hypnotherapy and mindfulness that I too, experienced. It is my passion to help others discover inner peace, freedom and soul connection. This is not about bandaids. It is about discovering and transforming the root cause of what drives your behavior and inward mental and emotional battles. It is about connecting to your higher self, where the real insights are gained. I know from experience that this is possible. I’m here to prove it. I’ve worked with countless sensitive feelers like you to help them reduce anxious feelings, guilt and self critical thoughts, gain self confidence, self compassion and live a life connected to their soul’s purpose.
I am on team “You”. I believe you have the answers within and my role is to simply guide you to your inner voice – beyond the voices of the people pleaser, worrier, inner critic and anxiousness. Your authentic self is ready to be heard. It’s time to step into your power and shine like the person you are meant to be.
When I’m not processing with clients, you will find me spending time with my family and friends, reading, at farmer’s markets, or playing and recharging in nature. I love to hike, kayak and be with waterfalls. I love music and was a music major in college before shifting gears and focusing on psychology and emotional wellness. Early in my career, I was a school psychologist and yoga teacher, a mindfulness teacher and then hypnotherapist. I am on a continuous quest to learn and explore all life has to offer.
