"Do you have a persistent feeling of "not good enough" that follows you from work to relationships to family? Does your mind race with thoughts about what you could have done better or how you disappointed someone? Other people might tell you that you work really hard, but your inner critic says it is not enough. You often feel self-critical and overwhelmed.Sometimes you are so paralyzed by anxiety that you can't finish work projects, make phone calls, or see friends. I can help you learn to manage anxiety, silence your inner critic, and feel good about yourself."

"Whether you're familiar with therapy or considering it for the first time, simply reaching out is brave, exciting, and possibly scary. We all have an innate desire for health and wholeness. We often feel our sense of self in the uppermost part of our body, our heads, and have a hard time seeing our body as part of us. Therapy that integrates the body's wisdom addresses this split, by bringing attention to energy, muscular holding patterns, pain, posture, gesture, and movement. These somatic (mindbody) experiences are great teachers, especially regarding trauma, addiction, codependency, boundary and assertiveness work."
