Are you highly critical of yourself? If you make a mistake, are you overwhelmed by feelings of failure? Do you sometimes feel "not enough"?
Doing more and trying harder are not the answer. I would like to help you quiet your inner critical voice and gain more psychological freedom in your relationships.
I have a warm and down-to-earth style and I have been practicing therapy for over 16 years. I believe in grace, self-compassion and authenticity. I would like to help you learn to enjoy your whole self - imperfections and all. I look forward to hearing from you.
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change". - Carl Rogers

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I personally understand the torment of living with an inner critical voice; in my own personal therapy I slowly learned how to stop depending on others for my self-worth and began to accept myself and trust my own inner truth. I feel called to help others discover this type of liberation as well. I would like to help you experience greater intimacy in your relationships, develop self-compassion and learn to enjoy your whole self - imperfections and all.
