Specializing in helping people with anxiety, depression and coping through life transitions.
Breathe ... inhale all that you need and exhale all that you no longer need
Sometimes our anxieties and worries can get the best of us. We can lose sleep over our worries, often times we are irritable with the people who love us, or we feel very on edge and have difficulty concentrating on work or school. Anxiety can also show up in our physical bodies as well. We feel achy and tense, and literally sick to our stomachs. Anxiety can be overwhelming to cope with alone. Your therapist can work with you to find more peace, give you a safe space to talk about your worries, and to explore various ways to better cope with this feeling.
Have you been feeling down, empty and hopeless. You are not alone. Approximately 7% of Americans (~16.1 million) suffer from depression. Life events (such as a death of a loved one, a scary medical diagnosis, change in career, divorce, struggling with the challenges of being a new mom, etc.) can trigger a downward spiral that can be scary to cope with alone. Having a non-judgmental place to process your thoughts and feelings can be helpful for many. Your therapist can work with you at your own pace to come up with a plan to reach your counseling goals so you can feel better one step at a time.
Life transitions can be tough to navigate especially if it were unpredictable. Many of us, dedicate a lot of time and energy to planning out our future and when life messes with that it can cause us to feel unstable and stressed. Making sense of it all can feel isolating and we can go in circles thinking about where we went wrong. Having someone to talk to can give you a different perspective and help you to cope and get through the difficult transition.
Whether it was a childhood experience or a recent one, sometimes we need help getting through those traumatic experiences. Some events we go through can really shake us and it can be hard to make sense of the world afterward. Your therapist can work with you to come up with a plan to process your trauma so that it no longer holds that intensity over you. Some therapeutic approaches used are Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT) and EMDR. We will meet you where you are along your journey and support you through the healing.
