Change Your Story

I am here for the people who struggle to accept themselves as they are. If you are ready to change your relationship with yourself, I am here to help.

Welcome! I am so happy you made it to my website. My passion is helping those self-critical, self-doubting, shame and guilt-ridden folks learn to lighten up and be kinder to themselves. I help people who constantly tell themselves a story about how crappy they are learn to embrace a different story. I am here for the people who struggle to accept themselves as they are. I specialize in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, which is a form of therapy that helps people develop insight into the lens through which they see themselves so they have more freedom to change.

If any of these sound familiar, I can help:

  • You feel that you are never “enough” – smart enough, attractive enough, outgoing enough, self-disciplined enough, _______enough (fill in the blank).
  • You beat yourself up for your screw-ups, thinking it will make you be better or do better next time.
  • You constantly feel like an imposter and like you will be “found out” in one way or another.
  • You have outward signs of success or achievement but it doesn’t make you feel better about yourself.
  • You feel shame for being who you are.
  • You are a perfectionist.
  • You feel if you are true to yourself, others will never accept you or want to be with you.
  • You relive things that have happened to you and often blame yourself for what happened.
  • You have a hard time saying no, settling limits with others, and advocating for your needs.

Changing the way we feel about ourselves is not an easy, overnight process. Growing up we learn to tell ourselves a story about who we are, and often how we don’t measure up. It is a narrative we repeat over and over and over again. Changing that story takes time and the support of others. I believe therapy is one of the best ways that people can get the support (and challenge!) to look at themselves through a different lens so they can stop being their own worst critic (and enemy).

My own personal experience and years doing this work has helped me see that each life experience provides an opportunity for learning, healing, and growth. We can change our story if we take the time and muster the courage to look at ourselves in depth.
