Sometimes life feels overwhelming. You try and stay busy, distracting yourself so the anxiety doesn’t take over, but by the end of the day, you feel depleted and exhausted. If you just had more time in the day, then you could slow down, reflect and take care of yourself, but this doesn’t seem possible! You’re already a naturally empathic person, but lately that feels exhausting. You seem to give and give with limited fulfillment. Lately, you feel stressed, irritable and alone. It feels so hard, but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

Many times, slowing down is exactly what you need to be your best self. Counseling allows time to explore, reflect and learn new coping skills that help support emotional well being and improve the relationships you have with yourself and those you love.

With a focus on supporting women with anxiety, role changes, major life transitions (such as pregnancy, starting a family, change in relationships), postpartum depression and anxiety, and issues centered around being a creative professional, we will work collaboratively to explore the challenges you are experiencing so you can start to feel more connected, peaceful and confident. You don’t need to suffer alone. Whether you prefer traditional talk therapy or something more creative, I hope to provide a refuge of support for you to start feeling better.
