Have you ever been kept up at night replaying the events of your day or anticipating what lies ahead tomorrow?

You hold the power to overcome

Maybe you are having a hard time turning off the replay of all the things you wish you had said.

Your thoughts continue to race, and you feel worse and worse.

Sometimes, our anxiety makes it seem like nobody understands, which leads to feeling lonely, isolated, and frustrated. It might feel like you have tried everything – and nothing is working.

Fear of failure locks you in, makes you feel frozen, and inhibits reaching for help.

You are not alone during this journey.

My goal is to understand your unique situation to promote growth and healing. Working together, we will gain a deeper understanding of your current stressors, develop a plan for change, and achieve positive life changes.

I help people who feel completely overwhelmed and inadequate resolve feeling anxious or “not good enough.” Through compassionate exploration, we will work to focus on all that lies within your control to empower you to live the life you’ve always wanted.

We will work to find the tools to manage your emotions, to embrace them rather than try to control them. Finding unique solutions will help you feel better about yourself and to realize the version of you that you’ve always imagined.

Working With Me

Counseling is tailored to suit your unique needs, so thoughts and feelings can be safely integrated into meaningful change.

I utilize interventions from a variety of approaches, including Solution Focused, Strengths-Based, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Polyvagal Theory, and Family Systems. This allows us to identify the barriers preventing the growth you desire while continuing to focus on the strengths you possess to overcome those barriers.

It takes courage for you to share about yourself, so I am going to take the first step here and share a bit about me…

  • My “must-read” book list continues to grow exponentially, and I am committed to someday reading them all!
