Hello beautiful being!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and transformative life coach. I have over 10 years experience working with adults to help support and enhance their quality of life. My passions are to help people find meaning, purpose, and direction in their life and everyday living. Happiness is a perspective followed by the reality you are able to create for yourself. In our work we explore what makes you unique, identify the life you want, explore what holds you back from that life, and plan to take control of your reality towards your desired life. I fundamentally believe people make the world go round and each of us has the capacity to impact others and the world in powerful ways! My hope and aim is that I can help others make a good impact.
Work towards a healthier you can be explored through a variety of mediums. I employ traditional and conventional practices such as cognitive or dialectical behavioral therapies (CBT & DBT), narrative therapy, family and couples therapy, and client-centered therapy. I also incorporate alternative modalities such as mindfulness and energetic healing therapies such as crystal, sound, reiki, aroma therapies to facilitate transitions.
Overall, we are all moving through life trying to make the best of our circumstances, exert our wills, and somehow cultivate satisfaction in our everyday dealings. Some environments, natural or social circumstances may make obtaining this can make it challenging. We may be left with feelings of dissatisfaction, hopelessness, or lack of confidence and direction. A little guidance, patience, compassion, and love creates impactful transformation!

Lydia is professional and just amazing. After a bad first experience on BetterHelp with my recommended therapist, I was referred to Lydia by a close friend. She took the time to introduce herself, tell me what i can and can not expect from BetterHelp. She is so easy to talk to, kind and understanding. I am looking forward to working with her!
Lydia is really empathetic and also direct. greatly appreaciated!
Lydia has guided me to a better life with care and empathy and her perceptions
Lydia is an amazing therapist who has taken the time to help me heal past traumas. Not even knowing where to begin myself, she makes a clear plan to move forth - all while making sure it is the best plan for specifically you. She always answers any questions right away, including in the session chat. She gives amazing insight, information and tools to help you move through any difficulties. She is the best therapist I’ve ever had - I’m so grateful for her
A wonderful clinician that pays a lot of attention to small details. She's very thoughtful.
She offers me a new perspective and great advice for what I’m currently struggling with. She’s non judgemental and understanding of my fears and anxiety.
Lydia has always guided me with keen kindness, and insight. She helps me come out of phases where i feel lost and confused and brings to light the beauty and reality of things but in a wonderful way through listening and helping guiding and coach.
She provides wonderful exercises that are very helpful and help growth.
Words cannot begin to describe how whole, heard and happy I feel after our sessions! Lydia is the best!!
Lydia has been super helpful with me getting through a very difficult time. She first listened to me and what was going on. She then gave very insightful input with regards to my situation. She helped me achieve clarity of my situation which greatly reduced my anxiety and frustrations. She gave very useful exercises and left me with useful takeaways that I can carry forward with my life. I am now moving forward and living my "life by design" as she would put it. I can't express how thankful I am for having this Lydia as my counsellor. =)
She is so great, really listens to me, and offers a great range of tools to help me with my anxiety!
