We will focus on getting to know each other and see if we are the right fit. We will not only talk about what brings you to counseling but we will also talked about the goals you want to achieve.
Anxiety, depression, trauma, and eating disorders are serious conditions, but they don’t have to control your life. I know from experience that they can be treated successfully. Yes, it’s possible to wake up in the morning and look forward to the day… or learn techniques to get your stress under control… or be surrounded by people who lift you up.
To be most effective, I believe that counseling needs to be a collaborative endeavor. I see myself as a consultant working together with you toward where you want to be in life. As my client, you can expect a welcoming environment where you will feel comfortable exploring the avenues to reach your goals.
Anxiety can mean nervousness, worry, or self-doubt. Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that entails excessive, repeated bouts of worry, anxiety, and/or fear.

Distressing or complicated relationship with food that can lead to isolation, fear, and death. Could manifest as eating too much or too little and generally stems from someone’s complicated relationships with food or their body.
Trauma is the result of experiencing a perceived, extremely distressful event. Although the stress threshold for each person differs, meaning that each person considers and experiences trauma differently, it is an event that tops one’s threshold. It exceeds one’s ability to cope or emotionally process. Symptoms may include shock, anxiety, confusion, hopelessness, feeling disconnected, mood swings, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts.
Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health.
Workplace issues are a common source of stress and can include interpersonal conflict, communication problems, gossip, harassment, discrimination, low motivation and job satisfaction, performance issues, and poor job fit.
Self-esteem is the degree to which a person feels confident, valuable, and worthy of respect. Feeling low self-esteem can influence overall well-being and be linked to anxiety and/or depression.
Social anxiety or social phobia is fear of social situations or a fear of interacting with people other than close friends and family. Social anxiety can be persistent, intense, and debilitating, greatly affecting daily life.
It's normal to experience anger at times, but for some, it becomes so frequent, intense, or difficult to control that it negatively affects their life. Anger management is a structured therapeutic approach toward reducing one’s anger to a point where more appropriate coping and/or conflict management skills are used. Beliefs and thoughts leading toward anger outbursts are explored while healthy coping and interpersonal skills are put into practice.
