For over 20 years I have helped people improve their mood, manage anxiety, gain self-confidence and take risks, to become more successful at school or work, and have more satisfying relationships. I can help you make deep and lasting change in your life.

  • Over-reacting
  • Mentally living in the future and/or the past, more than you do in the moment
  • Getting frustrated with others because they aren’t putting in enough effort or doing it right
Do you find yourself THINKING things like:
  • I’m tired of feeling like I don’t fit in
  • I wish I had more confidence
  • If I let people get to know the real me, they’d leave me/reject me/be disgusted
  • When “x” is finished, then I can relax/stop worrying/be happy
  • I wish I could stop thinking about/remembering “X”
  • Why are things easier for everyone else?
  • When I lay down at night, I can’t fall asleep because I can’t turn my brain off
  • What is wrong with me?
  • Why do people take so long to get to the point?
