Life isn't always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need help to work through some of life's more challenging problems. Everyone faces challenges, and has obstacles to overcome at some point. Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn effective skills to help you both right now and in the future. The possibility for a better tomorrow isn't as far as it feels.
You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a healthier you.
"You can't live the life you dream of, if you don't go after it."
I specialize in working with Gen-X and Millennials who are high achievers and struggle with anxiety. The overwhelm of anxiety/perfectionism causes them to be their own harshest critics, and impacts how they connect to themselves and others. Their life experiences are usually categorized as either "success" or "failure". So much energy is focused on what they feel like they "should" do or are "responsible" for, that they have difficulty knowing what they truly "want" out of life. They also have a hard time separating their self-worth and esteem from being productive at work or school.
These may also be individuals who are looking to heal from wounds of complex trauma experienced from past abuses and a childhood history of emotional neglect. I help them recognize what they might not have considered to be experiences of trauma and its present day knotting effect on their lives.
I also enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families facing life transitions, and those wanting to heal from emotional wounds and resolve relationship challenges.
If you’re interested in becoming a more relaxed and fulfilled you, I’d love to work with you every step of the way.
