Authentic Professionals Counseling

Professionals and Millennials deserve to know they are perfectly enough in work and life. But with too many pressures, your true needs can get pushed aside and give way to anxiety, doubt, anger, and being ruled by “should.” You might cry about work stress yet continue to over-perform. You seek a partner but the past gets in the way. You want more time with friends but your work-life balance is off. You feel like an imposter in work or academia.

Authentic professionals often: are “feelers” and experience emotions more intensely than others (can be: emotionally intelligent, empaths, highly sensitive people/HSPs), are good friends, intelligent, care-takers, and worry about doing or being enough in these realms.

I’ve worked alongside people in their 20s and 30s at universities and nonprofits on three continents. I can help you live your whole authentic self with less stress:
