You are one of the kindest people around. Your tendencies towards compassion and empathy, however, have left you with next to nothing to give yourself. You may find yourself feeling guilty and stressed over not meeting others’ expectations. I can support you in uncovering the true “you” that lies below unhelpful beliefs that have degraded your sense of self. Therapy with me can give you tools to set healthy boundaries and allow you to move away from the guilt, anxiety, grief, and depression that have been determining how you live day to day. You can live life with joy and free of guilt.
I have over 12 years of experience with adults facing challenges of depression, anxiety, loss, pregnancy and birth-related concerns, bipolar disorder, or struggling to feel adequate, worthy and loveable. I provide a safe and judgment-free place for you to process your concerns and learn new ways of approaching the challenges that have brought you to this place. I offer unconditional support to help you become the best version of yourself. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
