You did it- you clicked the link and made it to my website, in the middle of whatever shitstorm is happening for you. This is the hardest part. If you can- take a deep breath- really, don’t bullshit this. And now, let’s find out if we are a good fit and how I can help you.
I specialize in supporting neurodivergent professional women and gender expansive folx in their 30s and 40s recovering from relationship trauma and family dysfunction to create a life where they are thriving in their personal and professional roles, confident to be their authentic selves, and empowered to set boundaries and engage in meaningful life activities.

Chances are, if you are on this page, there’s a part of you (or many parts of you) that feel “different” from the rest of the world in some way. Maybe you relate to one or more of the following:

• Your brain NEVER stops running- and it gets worse when you try to relax or rest.
• You’ve been called “too sensitive” for most of your life.
• You feel intense shame for the intensity of your emotional reactions.
• You look “put together” on the outside but often feel chaotic on the inside.
• You resonate with “anxiety” or “depression”, but question if either is a good fit.
• You would describe your childhood as “sad”, “lonely,” “scary,” or “confusing.”
• You can’t make sense of your relationship with your family, particularly your parents.
• You feel often drained, lost, and hurt after interacting with your parents.
• You can’t understand why your parents criticize you, even though they say they love you.
• You feel unaccepted or unloved by your parents because of who you are as a person.
• Your romantic relationship history includes emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.
• You are often worried something bad will happen in your relationship.
• You want to know more about boundaries, communication, and healthy relationships.
• You are trying to recover from a recent breakup.
• You want to better understand who you are individually in romantic relationships.

At Mountain Soul Counseling, I see your “different” as a critical part of who you are. I’m not here to change your “different”, and I promise you I will never ask you to throw it away, bury it, disguise it, or stick it in a closet. I’m here to help you OWN your “different”- whatever that is for you. I firmly believe that without “different”- our world would be meaningless. We NEED “different”- and more of it, not less. You are probably so used to trying to make your “different” smaller- and I’ll be honest, and let you know that I’ve struggled with that for most of my life. If you are willing to imagine a life where you can take up space (physically, emotionally, spiritually) and exist as YOU rather than a watered-down, masked version of yourself- then you’ve come to the right place.
