  • “Dare To Be Your Best Self”

    “If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be”

    – Maya Angelou

    I work with women & individuals in the LGBTQ community that are seeking to find their best genuine selves, wanting to shake off the sadness, improve their self-esteem, end the constant worry, & stop living in fear so that they can show up with confidence & energy in their lives.

    I also work with LGBTQ Couples who are looking to improve their communication & connection so they can live their best life within their partnership.

    What does therapy look like?

    A safe and accepting place where you can heal from hurt, let go of anxieties, come alive after a depression, feel confident, and learn how to love yourself. You need someone with strengths in connecting with others, helping them find their own strengths and gifts, reflecting self-acceptance, and being a support system for when things are tough. The goal of therapy is to become a resilient person who is their own best friend and feels able to open themselves up to the world of opportunity. All of these things help you feel better, do better, and be better every day! I call all of this “daring” to be your best self as it takes courage, tenacity, and grit to continue moving forward when life is not giving you any breaks. If you have the motivation, I can help you get to that place where you love the life you live and are content in showing up as your true self.
    I can help you if,
    +you are anxious and exhausted from being emotional caretakers to others in your lives and inner circles.
    +you are afraid you may not ever feel happy again and have resorted to “numbing out” in order to make it through the day.
    +you are burnt out but don’t know how to make changes that will help you move towards the life that they really want to be living.
    +you are harsh and self-critical to yourself but empowering and affirming to everyone around you.
    +you are trapped in the negative “what ifs” in life and feel stuck without a way to move forward.
    +you so desperately want to make a change but just don’t know what steps to take to get to your goals.
    +you have gone through big changes in your life and need support while you find your true selves on the other side of that change.
    +you suffer from comparison and feel like everyone else knows something that you don’t and you are the only one who hasn’t “made it” and “don’t get it”.
    +you want to find yourself and live a life that you dream of.
    +you are a member of a marginalized or minority community who needs a safe, accepting, and supportive space to boldly live out loud and go on your journey.

    The Daring Space is a private therapy practice that works with people who want so badly to be their best selves. That can look like something different for everyone but it can happen when you have the support that you need to stop the anxious thoughts, move through your depression, process your grief, and/or work through your traumatic experiences.

    My clients often find themselves feeling more confident, more content, better able to manage stress and the unknown, with improved decision-making skills, a clearer sense of self, and more joy in their life. I want you to see those things in your own life!

    Look, we all want to feel better, do better, and live better. Don’t wait, you are worth the investment!

    I want to work with you to help you grow the skills that you need to dare to be your best self. You and I can clarify your goals, work to find what is holding you back, and get you moving forward. No more worry about who you are, where you are going, how you are going to get there, or what there really looks like.

    Safe & Accepting Space

    It’s hard to “dare” when you don’t feel emotionally safe. One of my top priorities is to work with each of my people to find what they need to feel safe in therapy. Active Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion are something that I value as a person and a professional. I make a commitment to all of my people to seek out growth and knowledge of my own so that I am able to provide that safe and accepting space for growth.
