This is a period of great anxiety and uncertainty, and it's important to have extra support. Chances are, you are more compassionate towards other people than you are to yourself. Having an internal critic who never lets up on you can lead to depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. As my clients develop greater self compassion, they see amazing changes in many aspects of their lives. I work with individuals and couples.

We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture.
