About My Clients

Are you overcome with a sense of dread on Sunday knowing that you have to return to work or school the next day? Do you feel incredibly self-conscious and nervous in relationships? Or do you just feel inexplicably anxious most of the time no matter what is going on? However anxiety is showing up in your life I am here to help. There is nothing wrong with you for feeling this way, you don't have to be alone in your experience, and you don't have to feel this way forever.

My Background and Approach

Therapy is a place where you can slow down without any expectations or judgment and just simply be. Honey, my sweet cat who often joins me at my office, loves to help my clients with this. Don’t be surprised if she jumps into your lamp imploring you to stay for awhile. From here, we can begin to discover what lies underneath your anxiety - the experiences that may be driving your fear, the thoughts that now perpetuate it, and the unconscious ways that your body reacts to it. The knowledge, skills, and experiences you gain through this exploration will naturally create space for you to begin to experience yourself, your relationships, and your life in new and empowering ways. As you begin to practice these new ways of being, thinking, and feeling in therapy and in your life you will find that anxiety no longer defines you. Who will you be beyond your anxiety?

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I whole heartedly believe in the power of therapy and the ability each human has to change, grow, and heal. I first discovered this power when I sought counseling in my twenties for my own struggles with anxiety. I learned more than I ever imagined about myself, my worries, and my joys - a process that not only soothed my anxiety but allowed me to discover a whole new way of living. I am forever grateful. I have a tendency to dive in head first with everything I do - a trait that has taken me to some strange corners of the world and human experience. I have an incredibly eclectic work history and so enjoy helping other people who feel that they are walking off the beaten track. I love finding laughter and play wherever it is hiding - yes even in therapy! If you are curious to discover what therapy and life might hold for you beyond your anxiety - please reach out! I so look forward to hearing from you.
