I specialize in helping people recover from anxiety. I also work with women who suffer from depression, trauma, and complex relationship problems of all kinds. Too often, worries and fears get the best of us and control our decisions. Instead of living the life we want, we end up making choices in life and in relationships that are rooted in self-doubt, anxiety, and worry. I provide a safe, empathetic, nonjudgmental space in which we work together to reduce fears and develop new, authentic ways of engaging in relationships.
