Message to clients

I am so honored you are considering reaching out to me and taking the first step in what can feel like a scary direction. My goal as a therapist is simple: I want to help you feel comfortable and confident by just being yourself. I believe that is ultimately the cure for what ails us. When we are trying to impress, or plan out how we are going to be, or are trying to project an idealized version of ourselves, we are not being ourselves.

Learning to "just be yourself" means understanding what is getting in the way, the expectations others have for you, your own (potentially unrealistic) expectations, your need to please, and of course, the ultimate dragon to slay, your self-doubts. I promise that this is not only possible, but actually quite attainable. I look forward to helping you get there!
