You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

I can help you explore in-depth understanding and insight, or develop strategies to cope with stress and change. I work with adults with depression, anxiety and panic, career and relationship issues, ADHD, bipolar disorder, stress management, grief, and traumatic stress.
