You were known for being the passionate and enthusiastic one in your department. The one who went above and beyond the call of duty. The one who came in early and stayed late.

The one who everyone relied on when tensions were high and morale was low. You were the one that got things done.

What if you could have a career that you loved & a life filled with balance?

This is What My Life Has Come To?!

Somewhere along the way, things began to fall apart.

The turmoil that you used to help resolve, was slowly starting to seep inward. You started to feel insecure about your skillset. As the external criticism emerged, so did your self-doubt.

As life continued to ebb and flow, you continued to diligently complete your work because you believed in what you were doing. Too many people counted on you. There’s no other choice but to do your job. Besides no one really likes their job anyway. Right?!

With a subtle crack in your foundation and your identity intertwined with your professional persona, you soldiered on.

Your role at work shifted from a job title to a title role in the feature film...


IT'S NOT YOU. IT'S THEM!

LET'S JUST CUT TO THE CHASE

and left wondering if you're the reason why things are not working out the way you had hoped

If you're being exploited because of your skillset & dedication ...

The expectations that are placed on you, are often unreasonable and not realistic. It’s almost as if, the image of the 'perfect' career is from a fairy tale.

And when you matched your enthusiasm with the fantasy, it became a living nightmare. 

I know. I know.

You didn’t think that you would be subjected to such unpleasant experiences. You convinced yourself that your career was ‘supposed’ to be filled with creativity, compassion, and healthy boundaries. 

Well it is and that’s where I come in.


You're expected to have no struggles, to be the epitome of perfection.

That’s not real.

Navigating through your career, managing a business, and maintaining a thriving lifestyle is possible without having to endure exploitation and burnout.

You can nurture yourself as you nurture others without sacrificing your values, health & well-being.

My Path to Private Practice

Over the past, 14 years, I worked diligently at various jobs in hopes to achieve 'ultimate success'. All that hard work eventually paid off, and I finally found my dream job (or so I thought).

It wasn't until burnout and compassion fatigue grotesquely impacted my physical & mental health, that I realized I needed to stand up for myself and make some long-lasting changes that prioritized my values and the reasons why I was so excited to serve as a helping professional in the first place.

Creating a private practice, gave me the opportunity to have not only the flexibility and freedom I needed (and deserved) to intentionally live my life, I also gained the ability to make a livable wage, giving me the space to nurture myself as I nurtured others.

Is it necessary to have a journey like mine to get there?

Nope.

Your experience is yours and all I hope to do is serve as your guide as you navigate your unique journey. 

from day dreams to real life

My values are at the center of my work - bc without them, I'd be lost.

what's working NOW, not 10 years ago, stick around.

Fully transparent w/o the mystery - I'll share with you the good, the bad, and the OMG!
