Life is hard to navigate. There is just so much to figure out that is always taught in classrooms or in day to day conversations. It's so hard to appear a little confused or out of sorts because judgement and perfectionism permeates our world. With all that said, how do we begin to be ourselves and follow our dreams when life is happening! So many questions to answer and sometimes our closest confidant is not a person we can be transparent with about our struggles. Well, I am here and would love to hear how to support you.

I was inspired to name my business SPEAK counseling services because I truly believe that untreated mental health and substance abuse dependence stems from our inability to understand how it is our mind, emotions, and body is trying to speak to us. Similar to when we stub our pinky toe and we get a shot of pain ; our body will send us symptoms of anxiety, depression, recurrent dreams etc in an effort to communicate pain/discomfort. Since mental/emotional pain is a foreign and misunderstood language we often lean on behaviors that sooth It quickly (e.g addiction) this increases anxiety/depression as the pain is never truly managed.

Every person that I work with just wants their voice to be heard. Whether it's someone who has dealt with negative thoughts, low-self esteem, the loss of a loved one, it's apparent that people really need someone who will listen. Someone who will care.

Here is another day that you are feeling defeated and tired. All your friends tell you that you should be excited about this news. However, all you can think about is the continued dread and panic that comes to mind with the idea of becoming a brand new parent. You start thinking about the finances needed; you contemplate the notion of how to manage your day to day. It all seems too much and excessively overwhelming. The anxiety is driving you mad. When you talk to family and friends, they all tell you don’t worry about it… but, how can you not worry?

Do you struggle to feel satisfied in your personal or professional life? If so, you're certainly not alone. In striving for personal and professional success, it’s easy to become disconnected from yourself and the relationships that matter most. As pressure and stress build, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or struggling to remain present. I enjoy helping students and working professionals face the demands of high-pressure environments without losing connection to themselves or the people they care about most.
