People may think you are excelling on the outside but feel anxious, sad, or angry. You feel like two people live inside you, one that lashes at those you care about and one that feels guilty after. You spend your weekends trying to unwind through happy hours and dating, but once the thrill fades, you feel drained again. You may wonder if your use of alcohol, the internet, social media, or video games gets in the way of you finding your purpose and living your best life. You find injustice impedes your ability to express and truly empower yourself.

My potential client is experiencing anxiety. This can show up as sleeplessness, repetitive worries and intrusive thoughts, overwhelm and physical symptoms, and shutting down. My potential client is experiencing burnout. This can show up as exhaustion, apathy, hopelessness, overwhelm at small things, negative self-talk, and straight-up rebellion from the body. Joy is hard to come by. My potential client is experiencing loneliness. This can come from isolation, from the removal of regular socializing, and from negative self-talk.

Being human can be hard! We are wired to be in relationship with one another, yet connection is hard for so many reasons. At an early age we learn and develop patterns of living and coping skills based on what was most adaptive at that time. On one hand, super smart! At the same time, these patterns can become outdated over time and no longer support the life or relationship(s) we want. Therapy creates an opportunity to explore, assess, and change the patterns that no longer serve us with compassion and curiosity.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.
