A Happier, Healthier You

Lately, you have been feeling like you are drowning.


You have a lot on your plate and it seems like your to-do list is never-ending. For each task you cross off, your list is piled on with 2 or 3 more tasks. Ugh, when will it end? 

You find yourself putting-off certain responsibilities. The thought of completing these is so daunting that the idea of organizing your spice rack or scrubbing your toilet seems more pleasant. Your avoidance preference of choice is taking a long nap, staring at your phone, or watching hours of Netflix. 

You use to worry about things that made sense, but now you're worried and anxious all of the time. You spend countless hours ruminating about the same thing, and this leaves you feeling exhausted and confused. 

You are really good at talking yourself out of events that cause you worry and stress. You can't stand the idea of being the center of attention, and you fear that others are judging your height, hair, clothes, size and the words that come out of your mouth. You take extra time finding the right outfit and cleaning the kitchen so you can put off going. 

You’re noticing that no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to relax anymore. You always feel on edge, like there’s a tightness in your chest that just won’t go away. You feel like you need to be continuously busy, but feel as though you can never really get anything done.   

It’s hard to fall asleep without relying on sleep aids, and even then you consistently wake up throughout the night or wake up the next morning feeling like crap. You don't even bother going to bed at a decent time. What's the point if you're just going to be awake and restless in your bed for the next 3 hours? 

It seems like no one gets it or understands. Everyone says that things will get better or tells you to give it time. Just when it feels like it's getting better, you fall off the wagon and begin the anxious cycle once again.  

Are you ready to get off this rollercoaster and figure out how to finally enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to create for yourself?

I will push you to work through your shame, guilt, self-doubts, worry and fear. You will fill your toolbox with helpful skills and techniques to manage your anxiety and and problem-solve your life challenges. You will learn to feel good about who you are, speak up for what you want, and change the things that are not helping you.


I am committed to holding a safe space for you to heal, take control of your mental health, and restore your wellbeing. I will support you in breaking free from self-defeating thoughts, beliefs and behaviors in order to create an enhanced state of overall health and wellness.
