I'm on a mission to shake up the way that the world thinks about self-care. It lights me up to teach my clients how to take care of themselves in a sustainable way so that they can show up for what matters most to them. I believe that everything that requires your energy to thrive, requires you to thrive. I believe that the way that you take care of yourself every single day directly impacts how you show up in the world.
Working with you has absolutely changed my life. How I see myself, how I mother, how I show up as a friend, how I show up as a wife. Everything. I sleep better. I am more calm, I am less anxious, and I am more confident. I cannot thank you enough for showing me how to see myself for who I am and not as others want me to be. Thank you for encouraging me to seek out my dreams and healthier relationships. I know that I did the work but I never would have known where to start or even that there was work to be done had you not encouraged me and believed in me. Thank you for guiding me to the innermost portion of my being where I can dissolve the limiting beliefs and behaviors that have held me back."
My core values are infused into every aspect of my life - both personally and professionally. I believe that each of us has our own lens through which we see the world and that you are the expert on your own life. I believe in collaborating with my clients to create the change that they desire. I'll bring some knowledge, tips, and tricks, and you bring the insight and knowledge about your unique life. How's that sound?
I am licensed as an Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the State of Washington. I'm also a Certified Child Mental Health Specialist, Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, and Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist. I have been in private practice as a mental health therapist and consultant since 2016 and I love supporting my clients in creating lives that feel amazing.
My passion for redefining self-care as mental health hygiene began as a result of repeatedly witnessing the corrosive impact of professional and personal burnout and compassion fatigue. I fully believe that learning how to take care of yourself to support your own mental and emotional health and well-being in a sustainable way is the most important lesson you'll ever learn.
In addition to my clinical work and coaching practice, I'm also the author of "Align With Joy: A 30-Day Guided Joy Journal Designed to Help You Cultivate a Life Filled With Joy and Gratitude," and a contributing author to the best-selling "Mastering Your Inner Game: Moving Mountains with Mindset." My Udemy courses on child mental health have served over 2500 students internationally and in May 2020 I hosted the "Thriving in Uncertain Times" virtual summit which hosted over 6000 participants and featured speakers from around the world.
