Do you have a hard time putting yourself first? Do you find yourself walking on eggshells in your relationships? Are you a worrier? Do those worries and negative thoughts interfere constantly with your daily life? You may feel like your brain never stops, even waking up in the middle of the night with a million thoughts in your head. You might find yourself replaying situations from yesterday or from 10 years ago obsessing about what went wrong. You often get stuck in a never-ending loop of anxiety and guilt. It’s exhausting, frustrating, and overwhelming!
I specialize in working with anxiety in children (ages 4-12), teens, and adults. También ofrezco terapia en español! I’d love to help you or your child find some peace, cope with life’s challenges, and learn how to set healthy boundaries. I’ll strive to help you be kinder to yourself and to develop real life skills.
I believe in the power of therapy because I know from personal experience how healing therapy is. I want to join you in your journey, hear your story, and guide you on your own path toward healing. I’ll offer you a caring, supportive space where you can work at your own pace, grow, and strengthen your skills. If you’re ready to get started, just reach out!
