My Approach to Helping

Do you scroll through your social media and wonder why you aren’t living your “best life”? You might say, “why does it feel like everyone else has their sh*t together and here I am, struggling to \'adult\' on a good day?\" Do you feel like you’ve lost your chance to live the life you always thought you\'d have? Or do you not know where or how to start?

Maybe you’ve achieved success, but are drowning in keeping up with your own unrelenting standards. You\'re exhausted from performing and disappointed that you always have to miss out. You know there is more to life than your job, but you can\'t seem to find that worklife balance. That feeling of emptiness may consume you as life has become more about keeping up versus actually living.

No matter your circumstance, life just feels overwhelming and all you want is a break. Removing the barriers standing in your way may feel like an impossible task, especially when you\'re not sure where or how to start. Sometimes talking to someone can help discover the obstacles keeping you blocked. Sometimes all it takes is seeing your life through another lens. Talking about your problems with a therapist can help you break through your stuck points, discover different ways to see yourself and others, learn ways to manage your mood, redefine yourself, and find peace in everyday life.

I help people reinvent their lives, and thrive in a renewed sense of freedom from the barriers that have been holding them back. This means getting to know yourself in new and authentic ways, learning skills to manage anxiety and depression, reducing unhealthy behaviors like drugs and alcohol use, navigating successfully through changes in life, and increasing the quality of your relationships.

I hear you and look forward to helping you find what you\'ve been looking for.
