Athletes, from high school to professional, current to former, if you or someone you know struggles with sports performance anxiety or addiction, let me help! As a former collegiate athlete and current sports junkie, I understand the complexities that a student or professional athlete experiences: pressures of in-game performance, anxiety of future college decisions, maintaining academic performance along with athletic pressures, life transition after sports career ends. All of these can produce intense anxiety and addiction which can cause shameful, intrusive thought patterns. I focus on combating shame by identifying strengths, expanding coping strategies, and understanding family patterns.

Do you struggle incorporating meaning and purpose into your life? Do you have difficulty coping with transitions and everyday stressors? Do you find yourself engaging in unhealthy behaviors or relationships in searching for your identity? I believe in viewing the patient from a holistic and integrative perspective, sifting through different aspects of one's physical, emotional, and psychological well-being in order to help identify sources of pain and anxiety that could bring turmoil to one's day-to-day existence. I have worked with individuals of all ages suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction, and general mood instability.

Whether I'm connecting with them through memes, sports , videos, books and music, I use a combination of evidenced-based practices and mindfulness techniques to tailor each treatment.
I understand that the road to parenthood does not always go as planned. It may include difficulty trying to conceive, pregnancy and/or birth complications, pregnancy loss, or rough postpartum periods. It can bring up some unexpected feelings like crying frequently, feeling overwhelmed and depressed, feeling disconnected, feelings of guilt/blame, having scary thoughts, lack of support, relational challenges and general difficulties with adjustment to pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum periods.

Are you looking to increase your healing and well-being? It is common for our instincts to lead us to stay away from uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we may feel depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or plain tired from issues that arise that we may not be able to solve on our own, and that is ok! Whether you have a short-term goal that can be reached in a few weeks or a long-term goal that can be reached in a few years, we will work together step by step to break down barriers and set you up for success on a daily basis.

You seem fine on the outside, but inside you feel you are not good enough, a failure, never enough. You want to be able to go through the day without feeling anxious, overwhelmed, depressed or all on your own. You're your own worst critic. You don't want to need alcohol or pot or comfort food to cope. You want to be able to handle your emotions better. You're wondering if life will ever get better, or if this is as good as it gets. Deep down, you feel guilty or ashamed. Social events may be difficult for you. Maybe you've been through a trauma (abuse, car accident, relationship breakup, etc.) and are having trouble moving on.
