About My Clients

You’re a strong woman, but lately you haven’t felt like it. You've been trying to get back on course, back to a life that isn't constantly filled with stress and worry, but nothing seems to be working. You find yourself saying and doing things you wouldn't normally do, which only makes you feel worse. You can continue living with fear and anxiety, or you can do something about it. You're ready to move beyond a life consumed by anxiety, and you are prepared to make big changes.

My Background and Approach

When I was younger, anxiety ruled my life. I know on a very personal level how it affects everything from relationships with the people you love, to your self-confidence, and even to the goals you hope to achieve. Every day I go to work I am excited and inspired by the women that I partner with. I absolutely love collaborating with women who struggle with anxiety because they tend to be insightful, caring, and ambitious. They can move mountains once their anxiety is managed. I find myself growing as much as the women I serve, because they teach me so much about courage, resilience, and grit. I know how difficult the road to change can be—I've been there myself. That's why I became a therapist: to empower others to rebuild their confidence and to live a full and meaningful life. You're ready to move beyond a life consumed by anxiety, and you are prepared to make big changes. You deserve to feel strong and live a vibrant life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a down-to-earth therapist who believes that our childhood experiences impact the way we view the world as adults, and influence our relationships with others. I also believe that when we process our past, we begin to develop a new level of self-awareness and can change our mindset and behavioral patterns that better align with our values.
