You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

Life can feel like a roller coaster full of twists and turns. You may lose track of your goals & rely on unhealthy coping skills to help you, including over/under eating, excessive exercise, self-deprecation, doubt, isolation, irritability, over-thinking, increased impulsivity...the list goes on. During these times you may experience tough transitions ranging from the loss of a loved one, sudden change in career and/or relocation, acculturation challenges &/or traumatic experiences that result in confusion, pain & other emotions you may feel flooded with. I am here to help you process & make sense of your ride.

We specialize in the treatment of anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health struggles in the U.S. and is highly treatable. It stems from genetics, brain chemistry, temperament, daily hassles and stressful life events. You should seek treatment for anxiety when it interferes with your ability to function the way we need to and live your life. When we feel out of control, we often try to control things that we can’t (like other people, for example). We offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is the leading empirically-validated treatment for anxiety. CBT is a therapy that helps us control what we can most influence—ourselves. It is a systematic, structured therapy that focuses on the continual, moment-to-moment links between what we think, feel and do throughout our days. CBT teaches us that small, consistent changes can lead to radically powerful results. This approach gives people the concrete tools they need to relieve stress, anxiety or depression and often involves an action-plan for a finite number of sessions. To learn more about our anxiety treatment see https://www.1awellness.com/anxiety/.

My ideal clients are women who want to be active in their own recovery process, even if they are right now in a "stuck place". They may be struggling with depression and/or anxiety and often both; transitions including new motherhood and chronic stress are common. They are motivated for change, have a sense of humor, and are open to trying new ideas and new ways of working with their struggles. This may mean seeing the entire self as the mindbody-one affecting the other in continuum, as opposed to having a mind, and then having a body as two separate things. Personal growth and development are important goals for the clients I see.

My clients come to me with a desire for REAL change. They may be managing long-standing mental health problems and/or new and chronic medical conditions. They also seek to improve their relationships and find out what makes their life worth living. In the end, my clients appreciate introspection and understanding the past, but believe that actual concrete change is needed.

I know why you're here. I see you...wondering how you can feel so successful in some parts of your life and so stuck in others, knowing your greatest fear is that you won’t live up to your potential. And yet you keep retreating, shrinking yourself, sabotaging your own success. Deep down you might be thinking you’ve been settling and selling yourself short, and you know it's old "stuff" holding you back, but you’re not really sure how to change that on your own. It’s time for a fresh approach. Are you ready to feel like your life on the outside matches who you are on the inside?

My goal is to help motivated adults to identify what they want out of life, figure out what's getting in their way, and overcome those obstacles to achieve the lives they want. I place high value on autonomy and seek to help clients increase their own sense of agency- the feeling that they have the power to make their own decisions and the resources to act on those decisions. My background and perspective can be particularly useful when working with clients who are highly intelligent, who are oriented towards engineering, science, technology, or who think of themselves as introverted, shy, and/or socially awkward.

Every night you lie awake, wondering if the doors and windows are locked – even though you checked them twice. Memories from the past flash across your mind – bits and pieces of the worst thing that ever happened to you. You find yourself playing out all the things you could have done, telling yourself how dumb you are for not doing something, anything, different – “If I had just…” Your mind spins because it doesn’t have the normal distractions of a long to-do list and a packed schedule to keep it occupied. So, you toss and turn until you can’t take it anymore. Then you get up to check on those locks one more time.
