You’ve ticked all the boxes - you've achieved success both educational and professional. You’ve met and exceeded many expectations from society, your family, and your own childhood. But you’re not happy, and you’re not sure why. Maybe you’re not even sure what it would mean for you to be fulfilled in your life. The idea of pursuing what will bring this level of satisfaction feels selfish, and you’re battling feelings of guilt about even contemplating it. I work with ambitious & thoughtful individuals who are often high achieving and good at supporting and taking care of others, yet struggle to take care of their own needs and wants.

You have it all together. At least, that’s how you present to others. Inside is a different story. You doubt yourself. You spiral into self-criticism and negative self-talk. You know certain behaviors and ways of thinking are problematic, yet you’ve brushed them off for years. Lately, you worry (and maybe even panic) that this is how it’s always going to be and that you won’t attain the things you hope for, e.g. a loving, committed partnership, stability, happiness, etc. You know you need to work on yourself and you’re ready to do that.

I want to help people learn how to take care of both their outer and inner world. If you identify as a BIPOC working in tech (or other high pressure industries) with immigrant parents, we'd likely get along very well.
