Did you grow up expecting young adulthood to be the time of your life? Were you told by adults that you're special and that you can do anything? Maybe you’re wondering why this doesn't reflect in your current reality; one of constant stress and uncertainty about your future. What you want is to feel comfortable with who you are. You want to be authentic in your relationships. You want to feel in control of your life. In therapy, I can help you reconnect with the person you want to be.
My Background and Approach
I have training and experience working with teens and young adults struggling with identity, life transitions, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, substance use and more. You are welcome to come to my office or we can meet virtually if that better suits you. Whether you are seeking counseling for yourself or with your partner, we will work together to discover true meaning and connection.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe self-awareness is the key to personal understanding and lasting change. If we are unaware of our thoughts, emotions, tendencies, and behaviors, change cannot be possible! Many of us have buried our authentic selves and need help do rediscover them. By replacing self-judgement with curiosity, fear subsides and allows you to go deeper within yourself. As human beings, we all experience suffering. We all want to feel good but we forget that suffering is part of living a rich and meaningful life. Getting connected to your values allows you to welcome the array of experiences that life provides.
