You are anxious, depressed, concerned about a toxic relationship, or life transition. You might have previously tried to manage these feelings by reading inspirational books or social media posts, yet you find yourself stuck, asking yourself, "I have tried so hard. How have I not reached my goals?" Your goal is to master coping skills so you can feel confident with your life decisions, and feel mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared to face life's challenges, rock at that new job, reengage with 'that' family member or friend, excel at your current schooling, or explore a new relationship with yourself or with someone else.
I am a psychotherapist (LMHC) committed to empower my clients to seek help and provide them with tools to make meaningful change. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflicts, self-esteem struggles, and individuals going through life transitions of all stages. I work using CBT and REBT approaches, creating clear and measurable goals.
Compassion and a sense of humor can assist with what can appear to be a daunting task of change and growth. I believe that the foundation of growth is appreciating that progress is not linear. I welcome the opportunity to discuss how integrating self-compassion, humor, and non-judgmental self-talk can be the way to meet and exceed your therapeutic goals.
