Anxiety and Stress
Feeling worried and stressed, having the same thoughts over and over, difficulty relaxing, tension headaches, clenched jaw, trouble sleeping, feeling anxious first thing in the morning, asking loved ones for reassurance but then feeling anxious about burning them out.
Feeling down or hopeless, loss of interest in friends and activities, sleeping too much or can't sleep, eating/drinking/vaping/Netflixing to try and feel better.
Relationships and Attachment
Therapy for People in Tech and Other Demanding Jobs
Are you feeling anxious, stressed, exhausted, or frustrated? Maybe you're flooded with emails first thing in the morning, constant Slack messages, tight deadlines, too much work, not enough support, performance reviews, etc. Maybe a co-worker keeps dropping the ball, or you're hesitant to ask for help, or you compare yourself to others and think they are more competent. Maybe you eat lunch at your desk, work long hours, and have trouble letting go at the end of the day and on weekends. And then the Sunday dread kicks in....
I can help you find ways to turn this around and improve your work/life balance. Then you can feel less stressed, unwind at the end of the day, sleep better, and enjoy your weekends, hobbies, and relationships.
Connecting to your emotions, feeling them in your body, naming them, and using them constructively. This can improve intimate relationships, help with decision-making, give life more meaning and joy, alleviate numbness, and more.
Shame and Self Esteem
Feeling unworthy, self-hate, or a mean inner critic. This can also show up as lack of self-care, choosing relationships that are unsupportive, or striving for perfection.
Healing from narcissistic abuse, including criticism and shaming, being devalued, scapegoating, lack of apology, and gaslighting. You can learn to value yourself, set boundaries, decide how much contact to have, and create new healthy relationships.
Loss and Change
Loss of a loved one, a pet, a relationship, a job, or a dream. Loss of health or aging. Life changes such as moving, starting a new phase of a relationship, changing careers, or retirement.
Spiritual and Existential Questions
Life meaning and purpose, mindfulness, self-compassion, healing psychological wounds that aren't addressed through spiritual practice, integration of altered states of consciousness, the Enneagram, etc. By the way, we only talk about spirituality if you want to. I respect the values of every client I work with.
Caregiving for an aging parent or partner, decision-making (including whether to become a parent), sexual and gender identity, drinking and drug use. I haven't listed everything I work with. If you don't see your concern listed here, book a consult and let's talk!
