Know Thyself Counseling

Life presents us with important transition moments, a chance to pause, reflect, cry, question and grieve, perhaps make some changes, and find the way to move forward with strength and determination toward the next chapter. I can help you find your way.

Are you at a major transition point in your life, needing to find your grounding, unsure of who you are anymore? Maybe you are going through a major breakup or divorce, or your children are growing and leaving you with an empty nest? Are you feeling lost, empty, afraid, anxious, depressed, resentful, or even embarrassed that you “let yourself” get so focused on others? Are you not even sure who you are anymore?

I can help you find your way back to your self, to the true, essential you. I specialize in helping women reconnect with themselves in a profound and meaningful way. Together we will explore the experiences that have influenced your path to this point. You will meet yourself in a new and deep way. You will understand and accept, and then release and move forward. You will choose who you want to be – how you want to live the one precious life you have from this point forward. I will support you as you take your steps in the direction of the grounded, intentional, beautiful you, ready to live the next stage of the journey with curiosity, courage, calmness, compassion, and confidence.
