"You’re overthinking things, second-guessing yourself all the time, worried you’re not keeping up with your friends/peers. You want to be your best self, but not sure exactly what that is or how to get there. You’re afraid to do the wrong things at times and do nothing as a result. When you and your partner talk about your relationship you mean well, but say the wrong things or it comes out the wrong way. Falling short on friendships, dating and your career and you’re not sure why. You need clarity and a way to move forward, but turning to friends or family doesn’t feel like the way to go."

"Choosing to start therapy is a sign of strength, not weakness. I believe all people have a natural inclination toward growth and wholeness and sometimes things get in the way. Exploring these obstacles with compassion and courage can help you cultivate the most important relationship of your life -- your relationship with yourself. Whether your challenge is depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationships, addictions or career challenges, all you need to get started is the desire to change."

"Do you defer to others too easily? Do you privately criticize yourself while easily finding good qualities in others? Are you more worried about others' reactions than your own? Do you feel anxious about where you stand with people? Living this way - no matter what it looks like from the outside - can feel demanding, frustrating, and perilous. I offer therapy that empowers you to go after what you want in love and work, with less fear of rejection or guilt over being 'selfish'."
