Always feeling inadequate from your drive to be perfect? Perfectionism comes with feeling uneasy when making mistakes, high expectations, self-criticism, and good enough is unacceptable. Thinking that being perfect will lead to a happier life usually lends to finding an unfulfilled life. Growth transpires when you let go of holding yourself to the unattainable standards. I specialize in helping clients starting at age 8 to adult struggling with perfectionism, anxiety, Autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, spirituality development, behavioral issues, LGBTQIA support, and relationship issues.

Do you constantly feel like you’re slightly out of sync with most people? Maybe you frequently take things too literally. Maybe you constantly make movie reference quotes, but no one ever knows what you’re talking about. You shut down when you’re overwhelmed and you’ve been told that means you have depression—but you aren’t quite sure that’s right. One minute you’re in control of your emotions, and the next minute you’re lashing out at others. You don’t understand why you’re so overwhelmed this time, when you have previously handled situations like this with ease? Do you find yourself often anxious and avoidant of people and places?

We all can get stuck. We can find ourselves in unhelpful patterns, relationship conflicts, and uncomfortable emotions. Do you feel trapped in your current situation or overwhelmed by life stressors? Are you craving more connection and better communication in your relationships? Or perhaps you or your child have been through a trauma. Trauma and life stressors can make daily functioning and our relationships challenging. Counseling can help provide relief.

People come to me usually for one of two reasons: (1) things are going well but they want to grow and evolve, (2) things are hard because of a past traumatic experience or a current situation, and healing and change is needed. Symptoms often include anxiety, depression, anger, grief and relationship issues. I work from a depth psychological perspective which means that I address the cause of symptoms as much as the symptoms themselves.

My specialty is working with individuals that identify with communities of color, multicultural identities, and second or third generation adult children of immigrants. I am passionate about working with adults who might be feeling stuck or stagnant, finding themselves repeating old patterns, and just wanting to do things differently. I support people in finding a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. Sometimes it takes a little support from a therapist to make the changes we want. I understand the importance of creating a nurturing space to unpack our experiences, explore, challenge, and redefine ourselves.

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling a sense of groundlessness during major life transitions, events, grief, or loss. Sometimes this groundlessness is experienced as anxiety, loneliness, relational distress, poor sense of self-worth, or insecurity. While these experiences can cause immense distress, they can also provide an opportunity to explore and get to know ourselves in ways we have not yet imagined.

My approach is holistic in nature, applying mind, body and spirit. For over seven years, I have worked with adults in a variety of settings. I have had the privilege of coming alongside individuals who are going through intense and often life-changing situations. All of these relationships are personal to me and through these experiences I have come to learn the devastating effects painful life events has on lives. I know therapy can feel scary and vulnerable. Just the thought of it can feel overwhelming and exhausting. And yes, it can even feel risky. It takes courage to confront fears and ask for help.
