We all experience stress and anxiety sometimes. It’s part of being human. Other times, anxiety can morph into something so big that it makes it hard to keep it together on a daily basis. You are working really hard to be okay, but the stress and feelings of overwhelm are just unrelenting. Your thoughts are racing, your chest physically hurts, and you feel like everything is getting to be too much to handle. Stress and anxiety can leave you feeling helpless out and out control, and you’re here because you’re ready to take that control back.
My job is to jump in the trenches with you
and help you to reclaim your power.
I specialize in supporting teens and twenty-somethings who are trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in, and how to manage stress as they embark upon a period of life that is defined by constant transition. Transitions can include navigating the challenging years of middle and high school; experiencing changes in family structure; going away to college for the first time; or simply learning to manage the pressure that comes with finding your place in your career and professional world.
I also work with parents raising teenagers in individual or couples sessions. Parents often feel blamed, judged, and misunderstood when their teen exhibits difficult behaviors. I provide a supportive space for you and your partner to process and make sense of what is going on in your family, without concern about what others might think. It can be exhausting and overwhelming to manage the stress of parenting, and I can provide suggestions about behavioral interventions and strategies to help you manage your own emotional reactions to difficulties you are facing.
As your therapist, I will swim alongside you as you navigate these waves of change. You can count on me to accompany you through the ups and downs, point you in the right direction, be your biggest cheerleader, and throw you the life raft if things get rocky as you make your way to shore. I’m all in!
With that being said, it’s important to know that how you get to your end destination is up to you. Therapy is not a passive experience- it takes work. Showing up for a weekly therapy session isn’t just about an hour of talking to a professional who can help you feel better; it’s also about showing up for yourself and having your own back by being willing to give yourself this time. You found me here because you’re ready to examine the hard stuff, and I am here to support and guide you every step of the way.
The first step is to set up a free fifteen-minute phone consultation. During this initial phone call, you can tell me a bit about what are you seeking from therapy, and I can answer any questions you have before getting our first appointment set up. Start today by sending me a message below!
