Counseling & Psychotherapy

It’s tough to being in charge, yet it has its perks and can be stressful. Are you struggling with your overwhelming work - family responsibilities? You are finding it hard to manage your feelings while taking care of all your health,  work and personal responsibilities. You need to keep a calm exterior, while inside you struggle with worry, sleep issues, and mood swings. It can feel like things are on the edge of crumbling around you. Yet if you try to tell someone they either tell you it is no big deal or they freak out and try to take over. You feel alone, frustrated and at times overwhelmed with all that life is throwing your way. This makes it hard to connect with others to maintain relationships and zaps your focus - energy. Especially so if you are in a leadership or nontraditional role that  makes you even more unique. Planning and waiting for the next vacation is a good strategy, yet can you wait? There is support now that can help regain your balance.

I help young professionals, leaders & entrepreneurs, and capable workers with chronic illness or disabilities find ways to cope - feel better. We all have times when we experience life’s unpleasant surprises which can become overwhelming and drain your energy - joy.

You don’t need to be fixed, just need a place where it is safe to share and be heard, so you can have compassionate, non judgmental support to figure out your next steps. I believe that each of us has our own inner strengths and values, and any solutions need to match. Reach out now to have support for your journey.
