Dr. Sheena Sikorski, Licensed Psychologist Specializing in Evidence-Based Therapy
Despite everything going on in your life, it constantly feels like you’re not working hard enough and there’s always more to do. You get compliments often, but somehow they just feel like they’re meant for someone else.
It’s exhausting and you find yourself
Procrastinating because you’re afraid that if you start something, you’ll mess it up.
Maybe you over-prepare for everything instead of just doing it. Or maybe you always wait for the perfect day/week/month to align to start something…only to end up stressed out.
Not enjoying hobbies or new opportunities.
Whether it’s a promotion at work that you’ve been working overtime for or a new hobby, it’s hard for you to get excited about it because you hold yourself to such a high — some would say impossible — standard.
Getting anxious —
even though rationally you know that everything will work out.
such as often saying “yes” when you actually want to say “no” or feeling like you have to do extra work to make everyone happy.
When you Google it, you get oversimplified advice like “no one is perfect” and “just do your best.”
The thing is, you already know that…
…and understanding what kind of mindset you should have doesn’t actually help you get there.
The biggest problem with this kind of advice is that →
You can’t simply “get over” perfectionism, no matter how many affirmations you chant to your reflection in the mirror.
Because let’s be honest…it’s more complicated than that.
What you can do is learn how to manage your tendencies — and even start using them to your advantage.
What if I told you that, when kept in check, perfectionism is…kind of awesome?
Instead of trying to combat your traits, you can learn how to turn them into your biggest assets.
I’m committed to helping you find long-term solutions using research-driven strategies…sprinkled with a healthy dose of fun!

“I was hesitant to get a therapist, but Sheena’s willingness to meet me where I was at built my confidence."
"She lets me go at my own pace but challenges me to ensure I am growing and thinking about things differently. Dr. Sheena’s ability to listen and respond while being non-judgmental is invaluable. Her knowledge and perspective allow me to understand why I'm feeling the way I am and how to be more curious instead of judgmental with my anxiety. I’ve grown so much because of working with Dr. Sheena. We celebrate small and big wins together and she’s helping me become the best version of myself!”
Licensed Psychologist for Millennial and Gen Z Perfectionists and High-Achievers
Friends and family consider me down-to-earth, open-minded, and dedicated. I bring these qualities into the work we do together to create an authentic therapeutic relationship and help you find laughter even in hard times.
I understand how challenging and daunting it can be to ask for help — especially when you’re so used to holding yourself to a high standard.
I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment so we can get to the root cause and cut through the old programming that’s holding you back.
Pssst…Let Me Tell You a Secret
Learning how to manage your perfectionism and high-achiever tendencies doesn’t mean you have to compromise your success
Perfectionism can be a good quality. You just need to learn how to use it in alignment with your values.
“I had a lot of anxiety and stress caused by family issues, work stress, and body image. Dr. Sheena helped me find the root of each problem and gave me a new perspective on many aspects of my life and career."
"I was nervous to do online therapy because I thought that in-person would be more effective, but Dr. Sheena is very understanding and a great listener with a calm, positive energy. She helped me understand why I was feeling anxious and stressed, the deeper cause of these feelings. I learned how to give myself more self-love, which has helped my relationship with my partner!”
