It feels easier to stay with the status quo than to go after an opportunity and potentially fail. 

You take a long time to get ready in the morning because you try on outfit after outfit, searching for something that makes you feel good so you don’t spend all day thinking about how you look.


It feels like you will never come close to the filtered posts on TikTok and Instagram.

You leave a meeting wishing you would have spoken up instead of staying silent, but in the moment it was too hard to voice your opinions and concerns.


It feels like others wouldn't have listened anyway, even if you could clearly articulate your point. 

You get stuck on every mistake you make and find many areas in which you fall short. It seems like there is an endless record playing in your head that points out your all of your flaws. 

It feels like no matter how hard you try, you will never be good enough.

There are some difficulties I have expertise in that are nested within self-confidence therapy.

Body Image

Many people feel insecure with how their body looks, especially with the barrage of filters used on social media. Therapy for self-confidence can help you have a better relationship with your body and be less focused on your appearance and perceived flaws.


Low self-confidence often goes hand-in-hand with perfectionism because when your standards are too high, you often don't feel good enough. Self-confidence therapy can help you better understand your perfectionism, set more realistic expectations for yourself, and be kinder to yourself.

Frequently asked


  • How do I know if I have anxiety?
    Everyone has anxiety from time to time. However, an anxiety-related diagnosis generally involves a lot of worry that impacts your life. While you don’t need a formal anxiety disorder to benefit from anxiety therapy, we can work on identifying a formal diagnosis if this is helpful for you.
  • What is the difference between stress and anxiety?
    It can be hard to know the difference between stress and anxiety. Stress is often isolated to a particular trigger and does not last as long, while anxiety can be focused on many things and be longer-lasting. However, there can be a negative impact from both stress and anxiety when experienced long-term. Regardless of whether you are experiencing stress or anxiety, anxiety therapy can help!
  • How often will we meet?
    We can meet every week or every other week. During our first session, we will discuss a schedule that works best for you. As you find relief from your anxiety, we can reduce session frequency as needed.
  • What will we do in session?
    Every session is focused on what will be most helpful for you. I strive to make conversations casual and connecting. We may discuss how things have been since our last meeting, situations in which you felt anxious, or strategies to manage your anxiety.
  • Will anxiety therapy involve medication?
    While medication may be recommended in some cases, anxiety therapy primarily focuses on non-medication-based approaches. I will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that may include therapy techniques, lifestyle modifications, and, if necessary, collaboration with a psychiatric medication provider for medication management.
  • How do we get started?
    You’ll start by filling out my Introduction Form. Then, we can have a free 15-minute meeting to make sure it is a good fit if you would like. From there, we will have our first session, which lasts 75 minutes so we can get to know each other and develop a plan to help you meet your goals.
