From the outside you seem to have it all together. Deep down you're struggling and you don't know where to turn next. You're frustrated with life but don't know what to do about it. After achieving some life goals you're stuck wondering: now what? Maybe you successfully made it through school and into your early career, but it's not what you were hoping for. Maybe you're torn between wanting a relationship and wanting to remain fiercely independent, or you want a partner but the idea of dating is terrifying. Perhaps you're in a relationship but you still feel lonely. Something's missing, but you're not sure what.

Feeling seen and understood is healing. When we do not feel seen for who we are, we can lose sight of ourselves and what makes us unique. When we are not accepted, we can begin to feel disconnected, depressed, or disillusioned with life. If left unaddressed, this can grow into a nagging emptiness and unsuccessful attempts to avoid the feeling. Life can feel like a chore under the fog of this mental struggle. With the support of therapy, many can find themselves out of the fog to build a fulfilling life. My services are for those who struggle with depression, self-worth, feeling lost in life, or identify as an empath or intuitive.

Sometimes it feels like the world conspires against our authenticity. We often face pressure to be someone we’re not, or to paper over our complex identities for others’ comfort and ease of understanding. Navigating pressures of dual identities helped me deepen my empathy and curiosity for others, and develop a sensitivity to anyone who feels unheard, disregarded, or misunderstood.

Life in the 21st century has forced many people to live with many hats and obligations. At times these hats heavy the head making life a little cluttered with stress, anxiety, shame, anger, self-doubt, feelings of being overwhelmed, and potentially depression. These feelings may negatively impact familial relationships, sexual relationships, work functionality, and social life. Everyone has the ability to live their best and most fulfilled life, even in COVID times. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to in order to actualize their goals and achieve their dreams in spite of life changes, past traumas, and anxieties.

Often folks develop useful, but sometimes counterproductive, ways of surviving or getting through overwhelming moments. Therapy can be a place to disrupt old habits that have long served their purpose and are robbing you of opportunities for growth and happiness. It's a place to not just be seen and heard, but where you can see and hear yourself.

For far too long, you thought about perfect, you worked toward perfect, you planned the perfect dinner parties, you strived and sacrificed for perfect, you held up “perfect” as your ideal, you handled it all! You did all these because something inside of you say “if you slack off or slow down, you will lose, you will be a disappointment”. The pressure shows up in unhealthy relationships, overdrinking, overspending, overdelivering, over-everything! You are tired, irritable and you sleep terribly. Not anymore, it’s time for a change.
