Message to clients

It's so helpful to find someone who you can just be yourself for an hour a week, talk about all the things that are important to you, and not have to wear a brave face or feel judged. It can be hard to reach out for the first time, but I encourage you to just call. This is a place where we work together on making you feel like you can achieve the happiness that you really deserve."

To college students: "It can be incredibly stressful to move from high school to college – especially if you were a superstar in high school. Many people feel the need to be perfect, make the right decisions, and I work with you to feel comfortable with yourself, enjoy your academics and social life, and know that whatever happens, you're going to be a success in your own way." 

To medical students: Having trained as a medical doctor, I know that medical school can be extremely stressful; and that there's a huge pressure to know all the small details. The reality is you're going to get this information over and over again; but it's very difficult to manage expectations and pressure. I work with you to make this training an enjoyable process, rather than a horrific stress in your life.
