Did you know anxiety is the most common diagnosis in the U.S with 40 million adults diagnosed? (ADAA)
Did you know 50% of teens are "self conscious" about their bodies and about 26% are "dissatisfied"? (National Organization for Women)
Anxiety appears in many ways in teens and adults from generalized anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, panic attacks, and perfectionism in school and work. Anxiety treatment cannot be cookie cutter. My approach always starts with collaborative treatment to make you comfortable enough to want to approach the topics that are triggering anxious reactions?
I will always strive to meet you where you are each and every time we meet.

Self Esteem development is an important nurturing part of life's milestones and due to a number of outlets like school, work, social media, friends, or family our self esteem may be impacted and suffering.
My approach to building self esteem, confidence, and self assurance is finding your power within you and helping you notice and harness that until it feels more attainable and assessable.
Common Techniques Used for Self Esteem: Solution Focused Therapy, Ego States Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, & Health at Every Size (HAES) Approach
We live in a world where messages about our body and existence are fed to us through so many different avenues whether it be family, friends, peers, social media, or media in general. It is hard not to internalize that we should be looking to change a part of ourselves, that we aren't enough as we are, or that this diet will be the one that sticks.
You are not alone. Many people feel this way too and there are strategies to address they way you feel about your body and self worth.
