*Accepting New Clients* Are you having difficulty relaxing and keeping your anxiety level down? When people come to therapy, they may be fed up with excessive worry, feeling like they can’t get their life together or that their confidence has taken a hit. You may be frustrated with feeling triggered in everyday situations. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel better about yourself. You’re ready to learn tools to manage strong emotions. Most of all, you’re ready to break free and create the life you want to live!
Clients come to me looking for a poetry or talk therapist who listens and teaches passionately, because therapy should be a place where you feel supported and challenged to grow. Sessions with me are interactive and thought-provoking. Together, we explore guided journaling inspired by evocative poetry. And we always go at your own pace.
As an experienced depression/anxiety/trauma therapist, I believe that we all have the power to change. You don’t have to continue living with low self-confidence, and you don’t have to do it alone. Call or e-mail me today for a free 15-minute consultation. I can’t wait to hear from you!
Tiene dificultades para relajarse y reducir sus niveles de estrés? Puede que esté cargado con preocupación excesiva, sentir que no pudiese tener su vida en orden o que su autoconfianza se encuentra debilitada. Quizás le encuentre frustrado con sentimientos que le causan situaciones cotidianas. Podría tener dificultades para recordar un momento dónde no se sintiese así. A pesar de todo, algo es seguro: está listo para sentir alivio. Está listo para sentirse mejor consigo mismo. Está listo para obtener herramientas para manejar mejor sus emociones. Sobre todo, ¡Está listo para liberarte y crear la vida que quieres vivir!
Los clientes acuden a mí buscando una terapeuta que a través de la poesía o el diálogo, escucha y enseña con pasión, porque la terapia debería ser el lugar donde se siente apoyado y alentado a crecer. Las sesiones conmigo son interactivas y reflexivas. Juntos, exploraremos la escritura dirigida inspirada por poesía iluminante. Iremos a tu propio ritmo.
Como una terapeuta con experiencia tratando depresión, ansiedad y traumas, creo que todos tenemos el poder para cambiar. No tienes que continuar viviendo con baja autoestima, y no tienes que hacerlo solo. Llámame o envíame un e-mail hoy para una consulta gratis de 15 minutos. ¡Ya quiero escuchar sobre ti!
