Anxiety and Stress

Anxiety and stress limit many people’s ability to work, socialize, parent, and function in society. 

Can you relate to any of the following?
      • I worry a lot, especially over things other people consider insignificant.
      • I often feel anxious and unable to relax.
      • I have difficulty sleeping most nights.
      • I often experience physical symptoms of anxiety: muscle tension, chest pains, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, lightheadedness, hot or cold flashes, difficulty breathing, quickened heartbeat, trembling or shaking, difficulty swallowing, or increased sweating.

Everybody experiences anxiety and stress to some degree, but too much can damage your health, relationships, and happiness. If you are concerned about your level of stress or anxiety (and can relate to the list above), there is a good chance you need therapy to help reduce your stress level and anxiety.
I will help you identify and deal with factors that increase your anxiety and stress, and also help you learn coping skills. At times, I may also use relaxation techniques to decrease the physical symptoms of anxiety and general tension.

Weight and Body Image

We live in a weight-obsessed society consumed with diets and exercise. If you struggle with weight and body image, you are not alone! Many people—children, teens, and adults—deal with this issue. 

Do any of these resonate with you?
  • I feel bad about my body size and/or shape.
  • I consistently have negative thoughts about my body and/or weight.
  • I spend excessive amounts of time thinking about food, calories, fat, macros, etc.
  • I weigh myself multiple times per day.
  • I constantly compare my body, weight, size, or shape to others.
  • I restrict my eating.
  • I eat large amounts of food in one sitting and then purge through vomiting, laxatives, or over-exercising.
  • I find it difficult to stick to a moderate, healthy eating plan.

If these thoughts feel all-too-familiar, then you probably need therapy for disordered eating, an eating disorder, or body image concerns. I will help you understand how your social, emotional, familial, and cultural factors influence your eating behaviors. Through consistent counseling, I will help you develop healthy coping skills to alleviate negative thoughts and emotions that increase your self-defeating behaviors. I will also help you work toward greater acceptance of your body.


How do you know when you are you depressed versus just feeling sad, counseling can help you develop skills to improve your mood and quality of life so you can find greater joy and hope.

Do any of the following apply to you?
      • I feel sad and/or cry more often than I used to.
      • I feel sad and/or cry more often than I feel happy. 
      • I don’t find joy in life like I used to.
      • I feel irritable or even angry most of the time. 
      • I often feel hopeless about the future.
      • My relationships have suffered because of my negative mood. 

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may be depressed. In therapy, I will help you understand the root cause of your changes in emotion. Together, we will develop a unique treatment plan based on your individual circumstances and personality. Whether you struggle with depression or you just feel sad, counseling can help you develop skills to improve your mood and quality of life so you can find greater joy and hope.


Creating and maintaining healthy relationships can be tough—it requires honest communication, vulnerability, and trust.

Do you have trouble forming healthy relationships?
  • I have trouble making and/or keeping friends.
  • I have frequent arguments with friends, family members, and/or my significant other.
  • I have trouble asserting myself.
  • I find it difficult to communicate my needs to others.
  • I feel nervous in social situations.
  • I feel shy when speaking to others.
  • I rarely trust others.

Career Counseling

Whether you are a student figuring out your college major and career path, or someone making a career change mid-life, I can help you discover the career that best suits you, your strengths, your gifts and talents, and your interests. 

Do any of the following apply to you?
  • I am having trouble choosing a major.
  • I am having trouble choosing between more than one career path.
  • I am considering a new career.
  • I am unsure about what I want from a career.
  • I have doubts about my ability to succeed in my chosen career.

In your initial appointment, we will discuss your specific career-related concerns and goals. I may recommend personality testing, counseling, or a combination of both. Through our time together, you will learn more about yourself and your personality type, strengths, weaknesses, values, and life goals. You will walk away with valuable information you need to choose the career that is right for you.


People seek IQ testing, ADHD assessments, and testing for learning disabilities such as dyslexia for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Admission to a school or organization
  • To obtain learning accommodations at school
  • To understand the reasons for academic difficulty or low productivity. 

I have extensive experience testing students for a wide range of learning disabilities. Testing may take two to five hours, depending on what type of testing is needed, and it can be completed in one day or broken up into two days. If you want more information, I offer a complimentary 10-minute phone consultation to determine which tests are right for you. Please contact me to schedule a consultation.
