If you’re a student, athlete, teacher, or coach, it’s very common to feel anxious, overwhelmed, and burnt out. You’re probably exhausted, and you might be finding less fulfillment in the classes, sports, or work you once enjoyed. You’re likely juggling various roles at once, putting your own needs last, and possibly turning to unhealthy ways of coping. The pressure to be perfect and to please everyone else might feel so heavy that your focus and performance are starting to slip. Maybe you realize this isn't sustainable and that something needs to change, but you feel stuck.
As a former high school social worker, women's basketball coach, and student-athlete, I understand how stressful this can be. I also know that with the right strategies and support in place, it IS possible to develop confidence and peace of mind. By using a collaborative, holistic, and personalized approach to therapy, I can help you achieve your goals.
You'll learn to prioritize your needs, let go of the pressure, and manage your stressors effectively. You will likely begin to feel more confident, balanced, and energized. Ultimately, you’ll be proud to see an improvement in your personal life, grades, athletic performance, teaching or coaching. Get started by reaching out for a 15-minute consultation call!
