Anxiety | Self-Esteem | Eating Disorders


I help college students and young adults who struggle with anxiety, and/or disordered eating and body image concerns.

My clients struggle like you do. Despite being helpers with big hearts who pour into others, life feels hard.

When they first reach out to me, they are tired of feeling anxious. They often say that they sometimes aren’t even sure if they really need therapy because they are getting by in life. Their professors, classmates, and friends all think that they are okay, but inside they feel overwhelmed, stressed, and self-conscious.

They are often up at night replaying interactions with others, running through all their worries, and stressing about their to-do lists. Often, they feel a like a fraud; like they somehow managed to trick their way to where they’re at in life and worry that they aren’t capable of the dreams for their future.

They wish they could open up to others easier and introduce themselves to new people. They often worry about what other people are thinking and care a lot about the feelings of those around them. They are really good at taking care of others yet struggle to put themselves first. My clients tend to identify as anxious perfectionists.

Their anxiety gets in the way of the life they want in so many ways. They aren’t fully the kind of student they want to be. They feel like they are failing at juggling everything that’s on their plate. They feel drained in their relationships.

Their confidence in their ability to take on new jobs and opportunities is tanking.
