About me

I'm an introvert by design. An INFJ. An HSP.

I’ve been exactly where you are. Debilitated and held back by social anxiety. Unable to ask questions, make friends, and hold regular conversations. I couldn’t get promoted or interviewed for jobs I wanted. 

And above all else, to like who I was. I tried to fit into the box and will myself to be confident. I spent more than a decade struggling, wishing I could do life just as easily as everyone else around me seemed to.

All I wanted was not to be paralyzed in social situations. I wanted to show up confidently without my social anxiety tagging along.

But I’m grateful for all of it. If you’re ready to learn how to manage your social anxiety and stop holding yourself back, you’re in the right place. I’m here to guide and support you.

There’s no substitute for effort, but you can speed up the process if you understand and take these 5 ways seriously. This is your starter pack; what you do with it is up to you.

Of all the outside sources I've read to help regarding Social Anxiety, your story(s) resonated with me the most the past year.

Whether reading your articles, downloading your guides and doing the workshops, I felt a need in my heart to express how grateful I am direct to you: you were vulnerable enough to create your brand based on your Social Anxiety, and now you’re helping others like me who feel the same.

Does this FEEL familiar?

You dread meeting new people. You break out in a sweat during ice-breakers. Sometimes you even forget to introduce yourself. You do everything to avoid small talk. You have a hard time speaking your thoughts. You overthink things that happened years ago. You wish you had more friends but don’t know what to talk about. Starting a conversation with a stranger is the definition of insanity. You avoid the elevator.

Then you’re in the right place.

Social anxiety Workbook

Managing your social anxiety starts with not avoiding it. Yes, it’s a painful truth, but sitting at home hoping it will magically disappear never worked for anyone. What works is exposing yourself incrementally and intentionally.

The truth

If you think social confidence is
impossible to achieve, think again

If a homeschooled introvert with a foreign accent can find a way, so can you!

A podcast meant to help you be comfortably you, no matter the situation. My goal is to give you the confidence to go out into the world, share your worth, build meaningful relationships, and see yourself as highly capable. It all starts with being your awkward self comfortably.
