I'll personalize your counseling to be as effective for you as possible, not a "one-size fits all" approach. You'll learn new tools and coping skills."

"What brings you here is something important. It could be a specific question, thought, problem, or pattern that is causing you anxiety or distress. There may have been a sudden emotional upheaval through experience of a difficult loss, a painful or exciting transition, or a traumatic event. Or, it could be that the issue bringing you is not exactly clear, hasn't yet been formulated in words, or feels more like a general malaise. Our work may be long or short-term, depending on the nature of this dilemma. Whatever the cause, the techniques I utilize for listening and hearing prompt you to speak on a register that leads to change. "

"Being a woman and all of the roles that entails is difficult. Add to that a high achieving personality and things can get out of hand. While there is nothing wrong with being driven, if paired with inadequate or insufficient coping skills it can really be crazy-making. The anxiety that comes with perfectionism, caring what others think, and fending off your own criticisms can take up all of the space in your head. Before you know it, you realize that you're not living life you're surviving it. The goals you have for yourself are no longer motivators, they've become an endless stream of to-dos. You're absent from your own life."
