Often when we’re dealing with stressful situations at work or home we can begin to feel depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed. We may struggle to set boundaries in relationships or begin to feel lonely and unable to connect deeply with others. We also frequently begin feeling bad about ourselves. Maybe you’re seeking therapy because you’re tired of feeling unheard, or because you’re tired of beating yourself up and striving for perfection. I am passionate about helping people who are struggling with believing in themselves and who have a hard time letting others know what they need or want.

You are a product of your community. As a result, you are a Survivor of the traumas, the cultural norms, and the "rules" that you followed in order to stay alive. When you based your survival on another's expectation of you, you eventually found yourself lost in the limbo of sacrificing your authenticity and your voice for the happiness and success of your social circle, family, and/or your community.
