About My Clients

Does this sound familiar? You are an intelligent, successful, well-adjusted person. Other people describe you competent, hardworking, and empathetic. You have hobbies you care about and friends you enjoy. Things in your life are going well…to a point. You struggle with this tension in your chest that you can’t explain or get rid of. You find yourself unmotivated to do things, even the things you love or usually care about. You feel disconnected from the world and find yourself shutting down.

What I Specialize In

You hesitate to initiate social interactions, despite the fact that you crave them deeply. You feel that your partner doesn’t see the real you and no amount of reassurance from them quells that fear for long. You find yourself picking yourself apart brick by brick. No amount of achievements, accomplishments, friendships, or reassurance makes you truly believe that you are good enough. You find yourself seeking out comfort food and wine when your emotions become untenable and you feel deep shame and self-loathing about this. You love and appreciate your partner and friends but sometimes wonder if other people are struggling the way you are. And if so, why is no one talking about it? At your worst moments, you wonder if something is inherently wrong with you to cause you to act this way. This feels even more embarrassing given the level of competence and esteem that others hold for you. If only they saw what was underneath the surface…

More About the People I Treat

You have tried to solve this problem in so many ways. You have tried to “just not focus on it” when you randomly feel sad or begin to think you aren’t good enough. You have created strict plans for yourself to manage your food or alcohol intake. You have told yourself to just be thankful for what you do have. You have tried to give yourself “tough love” in order to move forward. And maybe these things worked for a while, but not for long. You still feel the same way on the inside and it makes you feel lonely and sad that no one knows or seems to understand the depth of what you’re experiencing. You need someone who will help you untangle the deep, nuanced web that is your mind. You need someone to make space for your intellectual complexities while encouraging you to wade into the water of your emotional experiences without drowning. You need a compassionate observer who can see your untapped potential. If this is what you're looking for, send me a message today!
