Please note, I am now offering in-person and virtual sessions. While I work with a variety of people, many of my clients are high-achieving students or young professionals who are struggling with self-confidence, productivity, and relationships. My typical client has many wonderful goals but can become easily overwhelmed by perfectionist tendencies. I help people explore current difficulties while also connecting these problems to past hurts or losses. Throughout our work, clients are also able to build concrete skills, allowing them to feel less anxious, more like themselves, and more connected in their relationships.

*Practice Currently Full* Life can feel really overwhelming at times, especially when you are trying to manage the daily grind, while also being present in your personal and professional relationships. When you have a busy and demanding life your personal relationships often take a back burner and it’s hard to deal with problems effectively in the moment. Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking. But, eventually these habits leave you feeling more stressed and disconnected, and problems that once appeared small snowball into larger issues.

My clients range from young adults to people in middle age. Most of my clients seek therapy when they become overwhelmed by a personal life challenge. Many aspects of their lives may be going smoothly, but they struggle in other areas: could be the academic rigors of college, a complicated relationship with a romantic partner, how to handle work stress or parenting issues. Whatever the reason, my clients hope for a therapist who creates a safe space for them to talk openly about their struggle, someone to help them gain new perspective and to partner with them to help alleviate the emotional pain caused by their difficulty.
