all about Haley

With her outgoing personality, empathetic nature, and positive energy, Haley creates a space where clients feel understood and ready to make positive life changes. She recognizes the many stressors brought on by the transitions and changes experienced by young professionals. During these moments, she believes that having a strong and reliable support system is essential, and strives to be that for all of her clients.

Haley’s therapeutic style is collaborative, genuine, and dynamic. Whether you're going through a tough break up or feeling unfulfilled in your career, Haley aims to see each of her client's challenges through their own unique perspectives. She exudes warmth and understanding throughout her work, while also pointing out areas that lead to growth and progress. 

Haley creates a safe space for self-exploration in her sessions. By encouraging curiosity and acceptance, she ensures that her clients will gain insight into the potential barriers that prevent them from feeling like their best selves and guidance in building tools to address them. Haley’s compassion and unmatched ability for connection only reassures that she will always have their backs both inside and outside of session. 

how she works

Haley has a diverse background that focuses on supporting individuals experiencing low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and relationship and familial conflict. It is through this work that she has learned the importance of authentic connection to foster individual growth. Haley believes that life has many moving elements that can be interconnected, causing feelings of stress and anxiety. Haley works alongside her clients to help them gain a better understanding of these components and how they intersect. Her goal through the therapeutic process is for her clients to create a healthy life balance. 

Haley views therapy as a collaborative experience. She challenges clients to identify their innate strengths that they may not have been utilizing, while also guiding them in building new tools and skills. When obstacles feel too large to tackle, Haley helps clients break them down to overcome them. In working alongside her clients, Haley strives to promote self-worth and self-determination in order to enhance their capacity for change.

Sometimes our own thoughts and beliefs can be the greatest barrier to reaching our full potential. With Haley, clients feel empowered to confront these negative thinking patterns. In sessions, she challenges her clients to break through their limited mindsets to focus on what's realistic and attainable. 

Haley uses a variety of therapeutic modalities to tailor each session to meet her client’s specific needs and goals. She incorporates mindfulness techniques to best support her clients in filtering out the chaos to appreciate the present. To Haley, when you learn to understand and accept who you are, self-empowerment and confidence will follow.

Haley is a ray of sunshine and a deeply dedicated therapist

She curates a safe environment where the fear of being judged disappears within the first few seconds of talking to her. She is the type of person you talk to for only a few minutes and feel like she's instantly your closest confidant, biggest cheerleader, and healing guru. Haley transforms the terrifying feeling of being vulnerable into relief and growth through her unending empathy. 

Sessions with Haley are like a big warm hug, yet she pushes and challenges you to be the best you.

She’ll always be there to make you feel seen, and guide you through obstacles and challenges with endless support, kindness, tough love and ultimately the safest of spaces. Haley has completely changed my life and I am eternally grateful for her! 

Haley helped me fight through my struggles and learn to manage my symptoms so I could live my life

By teaching me mindfulness activities, helping me accept that I needed medicine, and always being there, Haley guided me through a tough time and to the other side. I am where I am today because of Haley and our time together. My anxiety is so much more manageable in my day-to-day life and I have a positive outlook on my future. And even when I hit bumps in the road, Haley has always been there to help me through it.

I have really struggled with my self-confidence and body image and Haley has been critical to the progress I've made. 

She taught me how to recognize my negative self-talk and how to redirect my thoughts in a more positive direction. This exercise has helped me limit my negative thoughts and treat myself kinder. Haley has also taught me how to adjust my all or nothing attitude. She challenges me on my negative thoughts and has me look at all scenarios: worst, best, and what most likely will happen. This process helps to ground me and avoid an endless anxiety spiral.

Working and talking with Haley feels like relief every session.

She consistently reminds me that I'm not alone and that any struggles I'm facing are temporary. I know that I can always be honest with her because she never judges, offers reassurance, and guides me like an older, wiser sister. Whether through journal prompts, thoughtful questions, or mindfulness exercises, Haley always finds a way to help me better understand who I am and who I want to be. Truly grateful I have her as part of my support system.

Haley always shows up with a soothing yet friendly personality. 

She instantly made me feel comfortable and excited for our sessions. I love how she approaches our sessions like a friend.The most impactful action steps Haley has taught me is challenging my negative thoughts. She constantly reminds me to look at the facts in front of me as reassurance when my mind wanders to anxious or negative thoughts. I can hear her in my head challenging me on my thoughts between sessions.

In my past 2 years with Haley I can say that I understand myself so much more now.

Before working with Haley I was constantly anxious about pleasing everyone around me, so much so that I was unsure of who I was and what I wanted in my life. Through working with Haley, I have been able to acknowledge what I want to do rather than what the people around me want me to do.
