The fact that you are on this page right now in the middle of whatever the hell you are going through is a huge deal. HUGE. Take a really deep breath- and let’s find out how I can help you.
Fact: Navigating the world (especially in your 20s and 30s) can be confusing and painful. You don’t know what you are doing most of the time (it’s not like there’s a manual for this shit). Your feelings are all over the fucking place. You aren’t sure what you want in life (and if you do, you have no clue how to get there), but you definitely know that some things are working for you, and some things are not. 
Pain in life is inevitable. As Susan David says, “Discomfort is the price of admission to a meaningful life.” Anger, disgust, jealousy, guilt, shame, sadness, loneliness, emptiness, helplessness, frustration, resentment, confusion, and fear all come with this whole “being human” package. The good news? You aren’t in this alone. It is possible to live a meaningful life, and it is possible to change what’s not working for you.

If you are on this page right now, you may be seeking support because:

• You are easily overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions.
• You find yourself shutting down or on-edge frequently, for reasons you can’t explain. 
• Existing in the world feels draining, and you struggle to find time or energy for yourself.
• You are your own worst enemy- and you wonder if you can truly accept yourself. 
• You aren’t totally sure what kind of life you want or what really matters to you.
• You keep repeating the same behaviors that get you nowhere but can’t seem to change.
• You feel like no one understands the shit you’ve been through. 
• You can’t stay in the present moment, no matter how hard you try.
• You struggle to find your voice in any relationships, and it is hard to set boundaries. 
• You’re going through some life changes, and you are constantly questioning yourself. 
• You keep picking relationships that ultimately don’t work out, and you don’t know why.
• You don’t know how to talk about or identify your emotions or thoughts.
• You’re new to therapy, or you’ve not found a therapist that is a good fit.
• You never feel good enough, and you’ve tried everything to make yourself feel worthy.

I work best with clients who:

• Identify as early adults.
• Are willing to experience discomfort in order to achieve their goals.
• Worry they are “too sensitive” or overwhelmed by their emotions and thoughts.
• Feel disconnected from their emotions, bodies, and relationships.
• Are willing to be challenged to try new behaviors and skills.
