The heart of my work is helping highly sensitive people who are ready to restore healing, peace, and balance to their lives.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Barbara, CA
Therapy for adolescents can help you tame anxiety and stress, enhance self-esteem, navigate academic, social, and family stressors in more effective ways, or even learn to replace self-harming behaviors with healthier ways to cope. I can also help you find better tools to manage anger, sadness, anxiety, and depression, improve your relationships with your partner, friends, or family, and create and hold to boundaries that support you and the life you want.
High sensitivity can be both a gift and a curse. It carries inherent challenges, especially in an increasingly overwhelming, fast-paced world. I can help you learn tools to cope, freeing you to harness the gifts of your sensitivity, such as your creativity, intuition, and empathy. I can help you increase your understanding of your sensitivity, reframe past experiences through the lens of sensitivity to heal sensitive traumas, let go of perfectionism, and learn tools to manage overwhelm.
Anxiety is exhausting! It can take a toll on our minds, bodies, lives, and relationships. It may show up as a constant low-level stress, as panic that pops up at inopportune times, or excessive worry about what others think of us. I have training and experience in treating the various forms of anxiety, such as generalized anxiety, panic, and phobias. Let’s work together to tame your anxiety.
