Live Life More Fully

With Less Anxiety & More Confidence

Therapy for Anxiety, Depression, & Self-Esteem

You have a lot of responsibilities and demands in your life.  From the outside it may look like you are holding it together, but underneath it all you're stressed, on edge, and you feel like whatever you do, it is never quite enough. 


Even positive changes in your life feel overwhelming and you just can't seem to enjoy things like you used to.


Overall you feel stuck, exhausted, and frustrated with yourself for not being able to handle things better or move forward. 


You know that if you don't do something about your stress and anxiety it will continue to build up and things could get worse. 


You may already find yourself passing up opportunities, avoiding certain situations, and taking out your frustrations on others.  It's impacting your relationships and how you're living your life.

You want to feel more at peace and more confident but you're unsure of the next steps.

It's time to ask for help.

The good news is that things can get better and you've come to the right place.  

I help people find relief from anxiety, depression, and self-doubt.

I'm glad you're here and I want you to know that things can get better if you reach out for support. 

You can find relief and start living life more fully.

So what does it mean to "live life more fully"?

It means being able to embrace what life offers you, making the most of every opportunity, and ultimately bringing more joy and satisfaction into your life and relationships. The specifics are going to vary for everyone, but here are some common things that can help you live life to the fullest:

  • Devoting time to doing things that you truly enjoy and things that you find meaningful or that are in line with your values and what’s most important to you.

  • Simplifying your life, wherever possible, so that you can take time to observe and appreciate the little things, and be more present and engaged.

  • Staying connected with others– community, family, friends – in whatever way you’re comfortable with.

  • Developing a solid connection with yourself. This means getting familiar with and understanding your needs, wants, dreams, desires, and interests and keeping track of how they evolve over time. This helps you understand how to live your life in a way that is best and most fulfilling for you.

  • Having a sense of humor. Being able to laugh, appreciate the absurd, see the silliness, and not take everything so seriously can help release tension, broaden your perspective, and bring some necessary lightness and joy into your life.

How does all that sound? 

I want to help you get there.

**I understand that the idea of opening up to a therapist can feel uncomfortable, especially if you are already feeling anxious and overwhelmed. I provide a free initial phone consultation for you to hear more about how I can help and to see if working together is a good fit for your needs.**
