My Approach to Helping

Perfectionism, anxiety, stress, worry, overwhelm: I CAN HELP.

Anxiety is a slippery beast. In many contexts, it's extremely helpful. It motivates us to prepare for an upcoming presentation or exam. It helps us perform well when it matters most. It keeps us focused on safety and reminds us to prepare for the future. Sometimes, though, it gets out of hand. A drive to succeed can become perfectionism, where expectations become unrealistic and a failure to meet them brings intense suffering. Life's bumps can overwhelm with stress, and keep us up at night trying to plan for every possible future. Selflessness can become the law of the land, where needs go constantly unmet because of the fear of judgement. If you've read this far into my website, it's likely that you are at least suspicious of the role anxiety is currently playing in your life.

More Info About My Practice

My therapeutic style offers a blend of empirical psychology (with an emphasis on the brain) and presence-based psychotherapy. I focus on building a strong connection with my clients to support the change they want to make to themselves and their lives. I also often use humor in my counseling but have discovered this is difficult to communicate on a website without sounding disingenuous. (Trust me though, I'm funny!)

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, contact me and let's discuss. I can help you reorganize your relationship with anxiety to find balance between living well, doing well, and feeling well.

I offer an initial 50 minute free consultation to new clients.
