Feeling overwhelmed? Are you having trouble understanding why you feel sad, depressed, or anxious? Feeling isolated? Feeling as though others don’t understand what you are experiencing. Or are you having difficulty communicating in your relationships and you're not sure where to turn? Life may seem difficult to manage and cope with mental health concerns. There are times when you feel better but the uncomfortable feelings always seem to return. Please contact me so that we may discuss how therapy can assist you to living your best life so that you can consistently feel in control of your emotions, feelings, behavior and mood state.
Using CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and solution-focused methods, we will focus on your concerns and devise a game plan so that you are more balanced and in control. My 23 years as a therapist coupled with my own personal experience with Perinatal Mood Disorder/Infertility allows me to provide very effective, empathic, and thoughtful care.
Please contact me for a free consultation so that we may discuss your concerns, devise a plan of action, and assess if I am the right clinician to fit your needs. We will get you back on track so that you will enjoy this journey of life and living. I will be there every step of the way to help you improve your coping skills; and provide support and hope!
