👋 It’s nice to meet you!

I know what it’s like to be an anxious millennial in a high-pressure professional career, because I’ve been there!

In my early twenties, I worked a highly demanding medical job. At first, the work was rewarding and I looked forward to my work day. I didn’t notice that the job had started to demand more and more from me. I felt overwhelmed with these demands, because there was always more to do or achieve. It got to the point that I started to sacrifice things in my personal life in order to give more to this demanding job, but it was never enough.

I was in denial about the stress I was feeling.

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.
