As human beings, we frequently subject ourselves to harsh self-judgment. While self-criticism has its merits on occasion, it often engenders emotional turmoil. Research into self-compassion has unveiled its extraordinary ability to diminish anxiety, depression, and stress while elevating motivation, confidence, and overall performance. Yet, the practical application of self-compassion is often more challenging than mere words suggest.
As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I specialize in anxiety, depression, stress, self-compassion, the impostor phenomenon, perfectionism, and life transitions. My Ph.D. research focused on these constructs. I also have an advanced Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy (SCIP) certification and a Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) certification.
Seeking help to explore self-compassion and mindfulness is a courageous step. Let's work together to make this journey easier for you. Your feelings are valid, and I'm here to support you every step of the way. When you're ready, we can unlock your potential and improve your well-being together.
