*I am currently accepting new clients* I’m glad you are here. Reaching out to find support can be the hardest step. I can be difficult to know how to move forward in your personal life, work, or academics when fear, anxiety, or depression are making you feel stuck. I often find that when one hits a crossroad in their life, it can sometimes bring stress, but also has the capacity to create growth and resilience. Whether it’s experiencing overwhelming feelings of loneliness, trying to find your footing as a parent in the age of Covid-19, coping with a difficult boss or colleague, or navigating the loss of a relationship, having a nonjudgmental and supportive space to work on areas of growth can make all of the difference. I believe that positive change most readily occurs when the right balance of accountability and self compassion is achieved. To that end, I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where you can truly feel supported.
