Theodora supports youth and adults facing particular life challenges that can leave one feeling a sense of anguish, panic, or overwhelm. You may be a student or young adult who is finding it difficult to stay motivated and focused in your pursuits which can bring about uncertainty. Or you’ve found that mental and emotional exhaustion has grown as a result of family conflicts or caregiving expectations. Theodora can assist you in navigating those difficult feelings — whether guilt, apprehension, stress or others — that can come about as a result of these situations.

Beyond focusing on those that take care of others, Theodora’s 10 years of experience as a Social Worker and Psychotherapist includes a focus on supporting clients who struggle with new health diagnoses, managing chronic illness and a broad range of mental health challenges, as well and loneliness that comes with carrying these struggles. Theodora draws on your strengths and resilience to cope with your challenges during life transitions.

As a mother, she has a keen understanding of the challenges faced by mothers and family dynamics. Theodora will guide you in having difficult conversations with family members, navigating intergenerational challenges, and establishing boundaries which lead to healing and growth for yourself and those around you.

In her free time, Theodora takes care of her houseplants and garden plants (she talks to them, too!). Theodora also likes to play board games with her family and laugh really hard, go biking, and read good books.
