You’re struggling to find some motivation. Mounting pressure in your work environment. Or maybe you’re looking to assert yourself more in your relationship. Sometimes, life’s stressors can hit us hard, rendering us helpless. When this happens, we don’t always act in our best self interest. But, there are ways that we can increase our mental well-being. I believe that in order to affect change, we have to understand and explore the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Clients that I have had the pleasure of working with are hopeful of having the tools to adequately manage life’s next hiccup.

ONLINE COUNSELING Makes Seeing Us Easier - Traumatic experiences are taking over your life. You find yourself trying not to think of the trauma but the harder you try to avoid these thoughts, the more intrusive they become. It affects every aspect of your life; your sleep; your work; your relationships; and your self esteem. Despite your best efforts, you see the world through the lenses of your pain. Your peers and loved ones do not understand you and they undermine you by making insensitive statements like "get over it,""that was in the past," or "you always overthink things." You long desperately to feel validated and supported.

Are you looking for help but not sure where to go? Maybe you’ve been lying in bed battling negative thoughts that keep you up- the ones that turn into anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. When you do fall asleep it feels impossible to get up in the morning or maybe you’re overwhelmed and unsure how to manage everything on your plate: relationships, family, work or school. It's okay to ask for help. Not dealing with depression or anxiety by brushing it under the rug can only make matters worse. Doubting yourself, feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or alone can all lead to more stress –and the cycle continues.
