Hi there, I'm Zerek.

Do you feel that your life is spiraling? Do you often feel anxiety in everyday social situations? Do you feel pulled in a million directions and have lost your sense of self and meaning? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work, and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself?

I help everyday people who seek to improve their relationship with themselves, improve their charisma, build their confidence, manage anxiety, and avoid burnout. Together, we identify what's working and what is not, in order to restore your sense of wellness and balance. We'll use a whole self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body, and spirit.

Whether you're dealing with overwhelm, relationship issues, or cycles of anxiety and depression, I am here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary - even, intimidating - but you're making the right choice. You deserve the safe space you have been needing to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups, and create new habits toward the vision of wellness and wholeness that you deeply hold. I am excited to walk alongside you.

Let's work!
