Areas of Specialty:
Women with ADHD
With my firsthand experience being diagnosed with ADHD later in life, I provide a compassionate and tailored approach to address the specific challenges and strengths that accompany this neurodivergent journey. I specialize in supporting and empowering women with ADHD, diagnosed or suspected. Whether you're seeking strategies for time management, navigating relationships, or simply looking for a space to explore your thoughts and emotions with someone who gets it personally and professionally, I am here for you. Together, we'll harness your strengths, explore effective coping mechanisms, and celebrate the resilience that comes with embracing your neurodiversity.
Individuals with perfectionism strive for perfection in various aspects of their lives, such as work, relationships, appearance, and personal achievements. They have a strong desire to avoid making mistakes or being seen as inadequate by others. Perfectionism is often a coping mechanism developed as a result of challenging circumstances, including neurodiversity and childhood/relational trauma. Through tailored interventions, we will navigate the delicate balance between autonomy and connection, fostering self-awareness and a healthier relationship with oneself.
Childhood/relational trauma refers to experiences of significant adversity, distress, or abuse during a person's early years or within close relationships. Childhood is a critical period of development, and traumatic experiences during this time can have long-lasting effects on a person's emotional, psychological, and physical well-being. The impact of childhood/relational trauma can be profound and shapes how individuals view themselves, others, and the world around them. Together, we'll work towards understanding, healing, and reclaiming a narrative that fosters resilience and growth.
Insecure Attachment & Co-Dependency
Difficult early relationships, especially with caregivers, can affect one's ability to form healthy relationships. Whether you're seeking to understand your relationship patterns or break free from challenges with trust and intimacy, I am here to provide guidance and empower you toward healthier, more fulfilling relationships. We will explore the roots of your relational challenges, fostering insight into how early experiences may have shaped your current patterns.
