I work with folks who have a hard time finding balance in their lives and feel the stress of burning out. Maybe it’s ADHD/ neuro-spicy related, or just a mix of surviving in the post pandemic world during late stage capitalism, but if you’re sick of telling yourself it's fine and the boot straps that supposedly helped your parents aren’t quite pulling you up anymore, therapy can help. This is a space to understand yourself better, find skills to battle burnout, and make strategic plans to build your actual best life so you can end your weekends having fun instead of spiraling into a sunday scaries social media dopamine hole.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I work with folks battling perfectionism, existential crises, navigating imposter syndrome, feeling behind, and finding meaning in your life. I also work with young people struggling to find their authentic identity and families who are feeling misunderstood, not listened to or seen by each other.
There’s always time in therapy to vent, but I also believe that therapy shouldn’t last forever and it’s my job as your therapist to help you see the patterns of what’s keeping you feeling stuck through open and honest communication. Then, we can learn and use skills to problem-solve the patterns in your life keeping you stagnant and create real change.

In my opinion, there's two types of therapy. The COW and the dance. A cow is a crisis of the week. It's spending several years in weekly therapy without much progress, focused on what is going wrong in each moment. I believe there's always time to vent and process, but I also it's my job as your therapist to help you see the patterns of what's causing the weekly crisis to find real change.
