Many students struggle with one or more aspects of college life. Common challenges include making friends, succeeding academically, and balancing different responsibilities. The stress of being a student can lead to anxiety, difficulties with concentration, isolation, sleep problems, and feeling restless.

Although few students will admit that they are feeling overwhelmed, it is understandable if you have a hard time meeting all of the expectations that you (or family members) have for yourself. Moving away from home and your social support system would be hard for anyone. Trying to fit in and succeed academically in new social and learning environments can be stressful. Fortunately, counseling can help you learn to navigate your way through a difficult time.
I have provided counseling since 2006 and have helped hundreds of college students overcome personal challenges to become more comfortable and successful socially and academically. Having provided five years of therapy in two college counseling centers, I am familiar with most challenges that students present. While you are learning academically, why not learn to improve your quality of life?
My approach is very practical. I will show you simple-to-apply research-based techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness counseling that can help you feel more grounded and productive. I will show you skills that will not only help you now but that you can use for the rest of your life.
My therapy services are available for UC Davis students. I have extensive experience counseling both undergraduate and graduate students. Common challenges include transitioning away from home, being comfortable with peers and roommates, gaining clarity about academic and professional goals, balancing family or social commitments with scholastic pursuits, and making post-graduate decisions.
