"Hello and welcome! Supporting individuals through the ups and downs of their stress and anxiety is my jam.

 

I absolutely love this work and I think it's extremely important for you to have a supportive space where you can build an awareness and understanding of what's fueling your stress and anxiety, how exactly your anxiety is showing up in your everyday life, and what you can do about it.

 

I'm a fellow anxious perfectionist, so I truly get it and when I tell you that I understand or I hear you, I definitely do. This is why I'm so passionate about this specific area of counseling and why I do this work."

Minnesota Online Therapists Specializing in Anxiety & Stress

Not every therapist is the perfect fit for each client. We invite you to take look around and if you connect with one of our therapists, reach out. We'd love to hear from you!

"Hey there! I see you contemplating whether it’s the right time for therapy. You’re trying to manage all of your daily responsibilities and you’re not sure if you’ll be able to muster the time and energy to take care of yourself while holding everything else together. I get it.

Life has set you up to feel anxious, overwhelmed and exhausted. While it may seem impossible to have less stress and crazy-inducing life challenges, you can live more relaxed, with less worry, and with a poised readiness to handle what life throws your way.

It would be fantastic if you could predict what was going to happen, and try as you might, you do it without much success. This has left you feeling stressed, tired and burned out. I’d love to help you navigate your way to inner peace, and support you in recognizing, and living, your full potential. You are worth it!"

"These are times that impact one’s ability to 'keep up' with the pace of society, and expectations of others and ourselves. Taking the time to process the feelings that come up, learning coping skills and evaluating what you are able to do, and what you do not have enough time or energy to do, can help with managing the stress of changing roles or responsibilities.

I listen and process deeply, helping you navigate concerns and sort through mixed feelings, and I guide you in listening to your inner self, in making decisions and taking next steps towards where you want to be.

 

I enjoy seeing people go from feeling like they don’t deserve to have needs, much less have them met, to communicating their needs, reducing depression and anxiety, and experiencing more confidence and empowerment."
