If you’re someone who holds yourself to high standards, you might feel frustrated by how you get in your own way from succeeding. If you struggle with the combination of perfectionism and procrastination, counseling can help. I provide direct, interactive feedback designed to help you stay accountable to your goals."

"A fundamental human need is to feel emotionally close to others. Difficulty connecting in a platonic or romantic way can leave one feeling sad, anxious, and lonely. Often, we retreat from attempted connection to avoid potential pain, or become involved with others who may cause us more interpersonal stress because we don't know any different or because we don't want to feel disconnected. But isolating or engaging with harmful others can cause us to feel vulnerable, damaged, and upset with ourselves. This pattern often leads us to question if we are capable and deserving of joining and creating mutually beneficial relationships."

"When people make the courageous step to start therapy, they usually know they want a change, but may feel unsure about what to change or how to change it. Perhaps you’ve found yourself stuck in old emotional patterns, struggling to make satisfying connections with others or manage complex feelings from past traumas. You may be striving to live openly and authentically, but unsure how to take the next step toward a more fulfilling life. As a counseling psychologist, I am trained to help you clarify what you want from life, let go of the emotional patterns that no longer serve you, and live with greater purpose and fulfillment."

"It's a total crap shoot trying to choose a therapist, and you've been through this before. Maybe you have come close to making that first call several times but are filled with doubts and questions. You've gone to therapy but felt like the counselor didn't get you, maybe you're also a therapist searching for the right fit, or you have no idea how it could possibly help. Even worse, you're afraid of finding out something actually IS wrong with you. Perhaps you've also been questioning yourself, believing you shouldn't feel the way you, or you've been called "too sensitive.""
