"Are you a highly driven and self-motivated professional who struggles with self-criticism? Regardless of the successes, you still have moments every now and then when you feel like a failure. If you’re someone who holds yourself to high standards, you might feel frustrated by how you get in your own way from succeeding. If you struggle with the combination of perfectionism and procrastination, counseling can help. I provide direct, interactive feedback designed to help you stay accountable to your goals."

My approach is collaborative, insight oriented, and focused on helping you better understand yourself and express your needs in a healthy way. I aim to help you understand how your past experiences may contribute to expectations you have for yourself, how you communicate, and how you care for yourself. Together we can work to help you develop alternate and more adaptive ways to manage stressors, connect with others, and make meaningful change."
