You lack healthy boundaries in relationships and feel depleted because you just give and give and get nothing in return. You are tired of the racing thoughts and unwanted anxious symptoms. You feel like you lack purpose and you know longer know who you are or perhaps never did. You feel like life is just blah and you go with the flow of your day to day. Surviving but not really LIVING. You ask yourself "will this be my life forever?" My first step in working with clients is ensuring you are engaging in self-care and practicing self-compassion. Healing takes time and is not linear.
As a mental health counselor I have experience working with adults and young adults with anxiety, depression, adjustment, grief and a variety of other issues.

I work from a holistic standpoint and implement mindfulness and wellness techniques into my work with clients. I have an eclectic approach when it comes to therapy and work to find the most successful strategy based on the clients unique set of plans, goals and experiences.
