Sometimes in life, we go through periods where we need an extra layer of support. There are periods of highs, lows and everything in between. Maybe you are struggling with your personal relationships, maybe it’s noticing that you have had difficulties with change throughout your life, or perhaps it’s a deep desire to strive towards a better you, whatever that may look like. Going through the therapeutic process can help guide you and provide encouragement toward meeting your own unique needs. I am solution focused and come from a strengths-based perspective.

As a therapist, my main goal is to create that safe and trusting relationship to guide and empower you towards achieving ultimate personal growth.

Feeling emotionally and physically spent? Are you the type of woman who manages to function and is mostly successful but you worry that it is just not sustainable anymore? Various changes in life might be impacting your sleep and your ability to get things done or to have patience with the people in your life. A major crisis may not have happened but you are getting worried. You might be having relationship issues or struggling with some negative coping that provides relief but then remorse. It's time to quit pretending that all is well. You deserve to have a confidential reality check and some support just for you.

It is normal, on occasion, for everyone to experience some anxiety dealing with life. But lately those feelings have become overwhelming. Over time, it feels like you are anxious about everything, and nothing. The worry is starting to creep into every aspect of your life- work, family, relationships,... even going to get out of bed feels overwhelming some days! You are not going crazy, and you are not alone- anxiety is one of the most common reasons people reach out to for help. Therapy can help get things back to normal.
