Know Thyself Counseling

It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

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.

I hope that you easily find the support that you are looking for through your insurance, your employer’s EAP, or a school referral. It can be difficult to find the resources we need, especially in these times. I wish you well on your journey.

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.

Tucking in After Tragedy

It seems to be coming at us at an ever feverish pace. How can we talk with our children about all the ugliness in the world? Parenting in the 24-hour news cycle with young children holding devices that may flash news updates, is extremely challenging. We’re not even...
