About My Clients

Anxiety sucks! You found that the best way to deal with it is to give into what others want from you. Avoiding the problem and not speaking your mind works. It saves you from confronting people-which is really scary. My average client struggles with saying "no" and overextends themselves to make other people feel good. My clients say "yes" to people and situations that they don't want to commit to. People come to me when they're ready to feel relieved of anxiety by creating healthy boundaries.

My Background and Approach

The tools and skillsets I can teach you to learn to manage your anxiety can help pave the way to a more comfortable and confident version of yourself. My goal is to educate and help you identify the strategies that will help improve your performances as a friend, family member, coworker, and fellow human being. We will work as a team to reduce the frequency and intensity of your anxiety attacks and negative thoughts about yourself. My techniques are clinically sound, supported by research, and well-practiced with over 5 years experience in the mental health field. I am more than happy to share every bit of knowledge I've obtained over the years through my education, training in various therapeutic techniques, and experience working with anxiety-suffers just like you. My goal is to help those who struggle to manage their anxiety become competent in understand they "why" and "how" in everything anxiety so that you can get the healing you deserve.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

People-pleasing and anxiety work together. In order to manage the anxiety, one may choose to people-please to avoid upsetting people. People-pleasing can feel like a useful way to keep people in your life and guarantee that they won't leave you. Ignoring how you feel and what you want is easy in comparison to upsetting people by speaking your mind. However, all of this avoidance and people-pleasing is actually making your anxiety worse. I believe that setting boundaries can be a solution to significantly reduce your anxiety and protect you from harmful interactions with others. Healthy boundaries can protect relationships with people who you care about. They can also help you recover from unhealthy relationships that came to an end. Therapy can help you learn how to get to know your anxiety, how it developed, and how to learn healthy ways to guard yourself from suffering in relationships.
