Stress & Anxiety Therapy for Women, Young Adults and Highly Sensitive Persons

A Little Bit About You

You're a hard worker that prides yourself on being the person that always gets the job done. Others rely on you and you have lot on your plate, but you feel immense guilt saying "no" when people have asked too much of you. You are tired of feeling like you always have to pick up the slack and others expectations of you are wearing you thin.


You find it difficult to keep up with what you, and others, think you should be doing with your life. You often compare yourself to friends, family or peers and feel as though you are not good enough. You believe that you should be accomplishing much more than you currently are and others achievements or successes leave you feeling insecure and less than. 


You have high standards for others and even higher standards for yourself. You have a method for completing tasks and you feel annoyed when you don't have enough time or energy to get everything done or when others can't do the job well. Being a perfectionist used to be helpful, but now you are tired of being frustrated and never feeling good enough.

You recently went through a major life transition and now you feel overwhelmed, lonely, disconnected or pressured to make things work or be the best. Sometimes you resent this change and worry that you will never feel settled in or find relief.


You've perfected the art of seeming like you have it all together, but on the inside it feels like things are falling apart. You're dealing with high amounts of stress, your worry keeps you up at night and you have difficulties saying nice things to yourself.


You have big dreams and life goals, but somehow you can't quite keep up with day-to-day demands. Outside influences and pressures are bringing you down, you find yourself procrastinating on important tasks, and avoidance has become your go-to coping mechanism

Your anxiety is getting in the way of your happiness. You’re trapped in a never-ending cycle of doubt and you're tired of feeling stressed, anxious and burned out. 


Sound familiar? 

If you are feeling overwhelmed or paralyzed by your stress, anxiety, perfectionism or self-doubt, you have come to the right place. I'm glad you are here and I'd love to help. 

You deserve to take care of yourself with the unconditional support of someone who is trained to help you navigate through these difficult times. When you are ready to take the next step, I invite you to connect with me. I offer a free 15-minute phone or video consultation so you can get a feel for whether I'm a good fit for you. I'd love to hear from you!

A Little Bit About Me

I truly understand what heightened stress and anxiety feels like, and I can relate to how difficult it is to experience uncontrollable overthinking, worry or fear, how paralyzing perfectionism can be, how difficult it is to get out of avoidance or procrastination cycles, and how awful it feels to be trapped in self-doubt.

I also understand that anxiety is more than just anxiety -- there's a lot going on underneath there. This is why I'm so passionate about this specific area of counseling and why I do this work. If you're here because you want to be seen and heard by a therapist who gets it and can help, you've come to the right place. 

Finding the right therapist is time-consuming, daunting and, at times, frustrating. You spend loads of time searching profiles, reading about therapeutic approaches and wondering if, or when, you should reach out. Take a look around and if it seems like I'm a good fit, please reach out. I'd love to connect with you and discuss how I can be of support!

A Little Bit About Therapy 

My clients appreciate my warm and inviting, yet direct and straightforward approach. I am an active participant in your therapy and I will not tip-toe around your challenges. Your time is valuable and I want you to get the most out of therapy.

There's not a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. I cater therapy to your unique needs, whether that's diving in to see what's been keeping you stuck, helping you unpack years worth of stress and anxiety, tackling underlying patterns and themes, or providing you with a toolbox full of coping techniques, I will support and encourage you in a way that works best for your healing process.


You'll work best with my therapeutic style if you come ready to do the work, are invested in the process and understand that I cannot make all of your problems magically disappear. Therapy is a process and it takes time, hard work and investment to experience growth, change and healing. 


You'll get the most out of our time together if you come ready to dive in and figure out what's been keeping you stuck. You know it's time to do something different and you are ready to make changes. You are here because you want something better for yourself. 

I understand that there is a lot going on underneath all of that stress and anxiety, and I'm here to help you unpack everything that's weighing you down. The goal is to help you feel confident in your ability to manage your stressors and not feel so overwhelmed all of the time.

Coming to therapy does not mean you are crazy, that there is something drastically wrong with you, or that you need to be fixed. Coming to therapy is taking care of yourself, finding security in who you are, and working through the challenges that are holding you back. Therapy might just be exactly what you need.

If you're ready to get started or would like to know more about how I can be of support, get in touch. I offer a free 15-minute phone or video consultation to so you can get a feel for whether I am a good fit for you.
