Perhaps you're noticing an increased level of stress, and finding it harder to cope with the overwhelming shifts in the way we live our lives. I may be a good fit if you'd like support around anxiety + burnout, ADHD, interpersonal relationship concerns, identity exploration, and first-generation American issues. We'll collaborate to develop a realistic plan to support you in feeling more at peace within yourself and more confident and fulfilled in your choices and your relationships.
I offer a warm, judgment-free space for couples to explore patterns, triggers, attachment styles, and relationship cycles. I use Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) to support couples in exploring their approaches to conflict, and in deepening the quality of their communication and connection.
We can't change the past, but we can change its impact on us. Often past memories collide with our present experience, causing emotional distress. Together we will identify and reprocess current and foundational memories and help build positive, adaptive memory networks. This will bring relief and resolution in the present, and resilience and hope for the future.
Those who identify with ADHD are often highly creative with an abundance of ideas + big picture connections. They can also struggle with managing their time (arriving late, super early, or generally overscheduled), organizing daily life (meeting deadlines, staying on task, paying bills on time), and experiencing strong emotions (intense feelings that are hard to manage). I work with clients to regulate difficult emotions and offer effective time management + organizational techniques.
Feelings of anxiety such as a pervasive sense of unease, worry, or racing thoughts can be our bodies' SOS signal. It’s an invitation to explore what needs our attention. I will work with you holistically to identify the causes of your anxiety and the emotions you're experiencing as a result. I'll support you in regulating and managing your emotions with mindfulness and CBT techniques to help you feel more grounded.
