Hey, I’m Enid!
Therapist, latte connoisseur, and to-do list enthusiast.
What I do
I help anxious women overcome perfectionism and imposter syndrome so they can finally feel good enough.
I teach people-pleasing women how to recognize their codependency and express their needs confidently.
I guide driven women to unearth their dreams so they greet their day with excitement, joy, and calm.
Enough about me. Let’s talk about you!
You grew up in a family where expressing your needs (wait, what needs?) wasn’t taught or was outright discouraged. You were rewarded for being selfless, quiet, or the “good girl”.
Now, you constantly put others first — even at the detriment of your health, happiness, and self-esteem.
You’re overwhelmed by all the voices telling you how to live your life. It feels impossible to do anything without hurting someone’s feelings.
Deep down, you’re envious of those who appear to move through the world with such ease.
Meanwhile, you change your outfit three times before breakfast, read and re-read every email before sending, and beat yourself up for that awkward conversation with your boss last summer.
Not to mention: You’re convinced your boss/bestie/spouse/barista is only keeping you around for pity — not your actual skills, contributions, or personality.
Secretly, you have ambitious dreams that you haven’t uttered to another soul for fear of judgment, disdain, or disapproval.
What’s Therapy Like With Enid?
My clients describe me as surprisingly normal, down to earth, and relatable. When I’m not providing online therapy to women in Florida, you can find me exploring restaurants across the globe or sampling the latest Starbuck menu item. (More of the latte–I mean, later these days.)
As a Latina woman, I navigate opposing cultural values, strong personalities, and high expectations from my family and myself all before I’ve had my first cup of coffee.
I know how exhausting it feels to set boundaries when you want to please everyone — but also be true to your own needs. (Yes, you have needs.)
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I bring years of specialized training to guide you in unearthing your own innate wisdom.
I’m not the type of therapist up on my pedestal casting down vague and sugary advice like the latest self-help bestseller. (To be honest, I’ve probably still read it, though.)
Ultimately, I believe in the power of two human beings, earnesty working together, to bring profound change to your life.
How Therapy Helps Anxious Women (Like You)
Imagine if you wake up without worry, dread, or fear of what others think about you.
Imagine if you didn’t have to jump through the [constantly moving] hoops to keep everyone happy.
Imagine if you could replace your anxiety with self-assurance, confidence, and calm.
Replace your anxiety and self-doubt for calm and confidence
You can escape the shadows of suffocating self-doubt, anxiety, imposter syndrome, and codependency.
That’s why you’re here — wondering if therapy could actually make a difference.
Trust me, I wish you could pull up to a Starbucks drive-thru and say:
“I’d like a tall order of confidence, two shots of peace of mind, an extra pump of ‘I got this’. Oh, and a chocolate croissant.”
Since this magical drink order doesn’t exist, let’s talk about how therapy can make this happen for you.
My Approach: Caring for your Head and Heart
First, there’s your head.
You know there is power in your thoughts. But…what’s the next step?
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you sift through all the buzz in your brain, pick out the thoughts hurting you, and transform them into thinking patterns that actually support your dreams and goals.
The best news? Over time, this new thinking becomes automatic. Then, you know therapy is working. Look at you!
It sounds kinda like the aforementioned magical coffee shop, but believe me, CBT is based on decades of research and anecdotal evidence.
You’re so hard on yourself. Let’s care for your heart, too.
Your head and heart must be on board for any change to stick.
We will make space for all the fears, worries, grief, anger, and frustration.
We will be action-oriented, but only once we honor and process your deep feelings.
It’s time for a relatable, warm space to unpack all the fears and questions that wake you up at 4am.
Through the lens of Solution-Focused Therapy, we will discuss specific examples in your life and come up with how next time can be different.
We can talk about your family chaos, crushing anxiety, or annoying coworker and then brainstorm solutions to make things better.
Oh, and remember your ambitious dreams I mentioned earlier? Let’s make those happen, too.
You have a complex life.
You need a therapist who understands that.
Let’s get down in the wonderful mess of “who-am-I-to-be-happy” meets “I-am-so sick-of-this” and work together to expand into the person you were always meant to be.
