Whether you need help navigating life transitions or realizing your potential for emotional growth and healing, I have a down-to-earth strength-based, supportive approach that encourages therapeutic and compassionate conversations.
The first session is for information gathering for both of us. I will receive background information about you and your most pressing concerns. I will answer any questions you may have about my experience and knowledge to ensure that we will be able to work together in a collaborative way.
Going into therapy should be like putting the finishing touches on your life. My goal in working with clients is to assist them in discovering their strengths so they can use them to create the life they most desire. I believe clients move towards growth when the time is right. Most clients enter therapy when they have reached a critical life transition. In our time together, we will explore how your thoughts determine your feelings and behavior and find ways to change negative thought and behavior patterns. We will work on gaining tools to feel better, more confident and satisfied with your life. I also use mindfulness based techniques to integrate a mind body approach.
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.
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.
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.
Positive and negative change can be difficult, including things like moving, breaking up, adjusting to parenthood, or changing careers. It’s normal to feel stressed, however, life transitions can inhibit people from living healthy lifestyles.
