Imagine breaking free from the chains of the anxiety, depression, stress, & emotional pain you are carrying with you! Everyone's story matters.
Carl Rogers once said: "The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination." However, sometimes the process is difficult and the direction unsure. When you're feeling like life is just too much of a struggle, or you're feeling lost or overwhelmed, you deserve to have a safe place where you can be heard by someone who will guide and empower you toward the personal growth and healing you desire. “Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” Brené Brown

I help individuals address feelings of depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, secondary traumatic stress, grief, loss, overwhelm and burnout.
Sometimes we all need to be heard. We need someone to hold space for us so that we can share our experiences and process our hurt and losses. Parents, caregivers and those in helping professions spend a great deal of their time holding space for others. Doing this work can sometimes leave a person feeling empty, tired, and unappreciated. Helping, caregiving and parenting often trigger intense feelings related to past difficulties. The role of a parent, caregiver and/or helper can expose one to new trauma that needs and deserves to be addressed. You deserve to be witnessed and heard the way you witness, hear and honor others.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Traverse City anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Traverse City.
