You feel like you have to be perfect or strong. You often feel inadequate and judged by yourself and others around you. You feel anxious about not doing enough. You desperately need a break and struggle with asking for help. You don’t want to be perceived as weak so you would often tell others that you are okay when you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed. You struggle getting out of bed due to not getting enough sleep, feeling anxious about your long to-do list, and constantly waking up throughout the night. You feel like this will never end.

You want to live your life without guilt, shame, and anxiety. You want to feel like yourself again. You want to be confident in yourself and enjoy life to the fullest. I can help!

I specialize in working with adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, and trauma. I work with clients to process their childhood trauma, change and reframe their thinking about themselves and their work, set limits and boundaries in their relationships with themselves and others, process loss and other traumatic experiences, and work through mental health struggles for fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, and parenthood.

I make therapy convenient and easy for your busy life by offering a free 15 minute phone consultation and virtual therapy sessions (for those in Maryland & Virginia). Clients who work with me know that I have a straightforward and down to earth approach. Check out my website and schedule a consultation call today.
