I Help People Pleasers, Overachievers, and Anxious Individuals Find Calmness and Fulfillment


Others view you as a strong, competent, and successful person. You constantly feel tired. In relationships, you might feel like you are walking on eggshells not wanting to upset others. You might even say yes to more commitments or obligations than you are comfortable with.

Anytime you hear a compliment, it seems natural to dismiss the compliment. Maybe you down play the compliment, feel that the other person is being fake, or maybe write the affirmation off altogether. In a strange way, it might even make you feel like others don’t know you very well, because if they did know you, they wouldn’t be saying something so kind.

You might feel exhausted, so unconfident that you are indecisive, and alone. Every time you reach a milestone, you feel like there’s another step or stage until you’ll feel more content or at ease. Every time you reach a goal, there’s automatically a new goal that fills the empty slot.

If you’re overwhelmed and your own harshest critic, you’re in the right place.  


Perfectionism and High Achievers

Success often requires a degree of doing tasks that are unpleasant, but there is often times a positive reward. When we get positive feedback, it can almost feel like saying “no” to obligations is against the rules. When we sit back and look, you know you work harder or try to do things better than others, but it never feels like enough.


Social Anxiety and People Pleasers

When you spend time with others it can be pleasant, but after a couple hours, you’re ready to be left alone. Or maybe being around others sounds uncomfortable altogether. There’s a feeling that you are more thoughtful than others, but they don't seem to reciprocate the same level of care that you offer. At the same time, you still doubt that you are enough for friends and family.


Stress and Anxiety

You remember when you could sleep without ruminating about the same things over and over again. The more you think the more stressed you get. You get so wrapped up in your thoughts that you don’t even have a chance to think about how excessively ruminating on the problem doesn’t change the circumstances. You might find yourself shutting down or getting snippy with others because the capacity to relax has worn thin.

Post-Graduate Clinical Supervision

Congratulations! You have finished you graduate degree and now you’re working on your licensing hours. This almost seems harder than graduate school at times! I’m able to supervise for both LPC and LMFT interns in the State of Oregon and love working with developing counselors.


Expenses will depend on 3 factors. Whether I am in-network with your insurance, what your out-of-network benefits are if I’m not contracted with your insurance company, and what you want in your permanent health records. Let me break this down a little more below. 


In-Network Benefits

This is usually the most affordable option that allows to you to use your insurance benefits to their greatest potential. Sometimes there are negatives that come along with this, such as session limits and a formal diagnosis that will be in your permanent record.

Out-of-Network Benefits

This one sounds the most complicated, but I guarantee you that it’s not as intimidated as it might sound! You are typically able to select counselors that are part of your insurance. This allows you more freedom to choose who you like as you counselor instead of being confined to a small list of overbooked counselors. This often means a higher deductible and/or a higher copay, while still allowing you to use your health care benefits.

Private Pay

This is the most expensive options, but allows you to keep full privacy and anonymity related to your counseling. Insurance companies are unable to regulate or determine your treatment on any level.
