About

For anxious perfectionists, the treadmill of to-do lists and self-improvement seems to never end. Maybe you experience chronic guilt, shame, spiraling thoughts, imposter syndrome, and low confidence. Anxious perfectionism may also show up as difficulty with sleeping, boundary-setting, procrastination, and indecision. Downtime and self-care are tainted by guilt and the sense that you're never doing enough. It's exhausting & overwhelming. Anxious perfectionists are not people who already do things perfectly—they just feel like they have to. It's hard to imagine feeling unburdened, deeply rested, and unapologetically joyful.
I get it because I've been there. I've walked hundreds of anxious perfectionists through the tools, strategies, and healing it takes to tame their anxiety, stand up to their inner critic, and balance work with genuine rest. I use art therapy and a blend of other techniques to restore your vibrancy and create a sustainable, loving relationship with yourself.
I work online only across the state of California. You can stay safe and comfortable at home, in pajamas if you want—you're welcome exactly as you are. I'm caring, real, and direct; I use humor and I’m not afraid of tears. Therapy is an investment and a gift to yourself and to those around you—connect with me and let's get you feeling better.
