Recognizing that I was burnt out, stressed, and anxious was a pivotal point in my own healing. Once I realized these things, I felt my anxiety and stress lift from my shoulders because I could finally allow myself to make meaningful changes in my life.
Being authentic to me is something I value since it was so important to my personal growth. That’s why I shifted my therapy work to focus on helping millennial professionals who are struggling with anxiety and stress. I want to be there to help others who may be struggling with feeling stuck, just like I was. That’s why I’ve received additional training in anxiety, so I can help you find your own path to healing.
I’m here to help you realize that you are good enough (even though you may not believe it right now), and we can find a path in life that works for you.
