About

It's hard for you to put yourself first or even ask for help. You've been struggling with anxiety or burnout for a while and you know something needs to change, but you tend to take care of everyone else before yourself. You're usually the first to jump into help others and are the go-to person for your family, friends, or coworkers so prioritizing your own mental health almost feels selfish since you think you "don't have it that bad". But now you're ready to take the step to reconnect with your own needs, make yourself a priority, and clarify your core values so they can be your road map towards the life you want.
I specialize in anxiety and helping people who are tired of putting themselves last & want stop feeling guilty about prioritizing their own well-being. I help my clients align their lives with their values & empower them to make sustainable changes. I work with people who want to learn tools to feel more grounded & to show up as the person you want to be.
We'll integrate your core values & mindfulness so we can align our work with what's most important to you. I use a holistic approach & evaluate all areas of your life so you can live a more values-rich life. Therapy with me is non-stuffy, non-judgey, & down-to-earth so you can show up as your true self.
