Who am I and how does this work?
So, how does this work? Well, in short we’re going to talk about how you got to where you are to figure out what is helping you and what is hurting you. We’ll talk about your experiences, memories, thoughts, feelings, and goals related to your concerns to establish exactly what you want out of this process. Then we’re going to use science based tools to help you get where you want to be as efficiently as possible.

Being a woman can be intensely frustrating and confusing even with all the strides made in gender equality. People tell you when, how, and even if you should have a family. Employers treat you differently. You work twice as hard to get half as far. Your body is a topic of legislation. They way in which you present your woman-ness, the size of your body, the clothes you wear, your sexuality, the way you speak- is under constant critique no matter what you do. There are so many “rules” for how to live and they’re all in conflict and changing constantly. Let’s talk about how YOU want to live your life.
