Searching for a therapist can be overwhelming, even more so when you are going through life challenges and have limited energy to spare. Therapy can provide a space for healing, clarity, and growth, and the relationship between therapist and client has been found to be the most important ingredient in that process. I approach my work with flexibility, compassion, and a deep respect for self-determination. I firmly believe you are the expert in your experience.

Part of being alive is to experience fear, doubt, depression, and a multitude of events that bring about suffering. Of course, there are varying degrees, as some people are just having trouble adjusting to a circumstance in their life and need a little support in the right direction. For others, the problem may be chronic such as PTSD or depression. Most certainly, the state of American politics and the world today, have raised most people's base level of anxiety or depression.

On the outside it seems you have it together. You're successful and well respected but inside there's a fear that they'll find out what a fraud you are. When the mask falls they'll all know the effort it takes to get things done. They don't know how loud it is in your head: all the noise, the anxiety, insecurity, negative self evaluations. You get things done but not without a ton of energy. It impacts work, self, and even relationships. You're tired and lost. This is life as you know it but it doesn't actually have to stay this way.
