You wake up each morning feeling stuck and alone. The anxious thoughts just won't go away. Perhaps they are related to things going on in your life, or maybe they feel like they are coming out of nowhere. Either way, these feelings overwhelm you and you're just not sure what to do about it anymore. You notice that your relationships, work and even your ability to care for yourself are starting to be affected. You set goals in an effort to make a positive change, but quickly give up because you just don't have the energy. You are starting to lose hope that you can get yourself out of this.

Feeling a little lost or second-guessing yourself lately? Maybe you’re going through a rough patch or entering a new season of life. If so, know you’re not alone; and I commend you for simply being here and seeking support. The past few years have shown us just how uncertain life can be and it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed and anxious, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Talking with an experienced and compassionate therapist, like myself, can help you navigate these challenges, find hope and meaning in spite of uncertainty and learn new ways to cope and regain balance.

You feel stuck. Day in and day out, the monotony of your life is so draining. You know you want to make a change, but what kind of change? A new job, new location, going to school, a different relationship... It is all so overwhelming. Where do you even start? And that's where you get stuck. Knowing you want this change but feeling paralyzed by the anxiety of the unknown. Or maybe even worse, the fear of making the WRONG decision. So you keep trudging along. Day after day. Stuck in this constant loop. You want to escape this, but you just need help!
