Over the years, I’ve helped thousands of people break free from the toxic hold of self-doubt, constant worry, and low mood and create a path to joy and fulfillment. My role is to collapse the time it takes you to rise from the depths of stress to the heights of success. I will partner with you as a gentle guide, listening attentively to your desires and providing resources and feedback to help make your journey to bliss as smooth as possible.
I’m a recovering perfectionist with a long history of anxiety and a dash of obsessive-compulsive disorder. I spent years seeking ways to quiet my mind (that raced at 100 miles per hour) and calm my body (that panicked at the drop of a hat) besides the rituals that lent me a brief feeling of control and peace. I convinced myself that once I reached a certain milestone or achieved a particular goal, the anxiety and rituals would disappear.
When I finally *arrived* at my ultimate destination, my anxiety actually worsened, and the rituals started taking up more and more of my day. I developed chronic lower stomach pain that doctors said was “all in my head”. Over the next few years, I did everything I could to get better. I breathed and meditated. I lit candles. I wrote in a journal. I tracked my thoughts. I walked, I ran, I biked. I phoned a friend. I met with a therapist. And then another one. Then a third one. I learned a lot. But, nothing gave me relief from the anxiety and rituals. I questioned if there was something wrong with me – why couldn’t I solve for this issue in my life?
