There are changes in a one’s life that can be overwhelming or difficult to manage. Some life transitions for teens and adults may be so overpowering that it can lead to increased stress, depression, anxiety, feelings of guilt, irritability/anger, grief, and loneliness/isolation. These emotions also come into play on the path to parenthood which is full of surprises. Pregnancy, infertility, loss and becoming a parent can be different than expected. It can bring up unexpected feelings like crying frequently, feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, feelings of guilt/blame, and difficulties with adjustment to pregnancy or postpartum period.

Therapy is a powerful tool for individuals working through difficult pasts and struggling to cope with the chaos of life. Pressures of everyday life can feel overwhelming, impact our relationships, and deplete our energy levels causing us to feel exhausted. While you may appear put together on the outside, these constant pressures can have significant impact on our mental, physical health, connections with our loved ones, and life satisfaction. I specialize in supporting individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, life transitions, and parental stressors.

You want to appear successful and like you have it "all together" but deep down are struggling to feel confident in who you are or effectively cope with daily stressors. You may be fed up with feeling unimportant and overthinking everything. You might not even remember a time things didn't feel this way. One thing you do know is that you're ready for change. You're ready to live your life confidently without questioning every decision you make. You're ready to start putting yourself first without feeling guilty. Most of all, you're ready to love yourself and take control of your life again.

Do you experience stress/anxiety/panic/uncertainty/difficulty making decisions? Do you often worry about what others think of you/ replay conversations or events long after they have ended? Do you come up with plans that excite you; only to later talk yourself out of their pursuit? Do you look forward to an event, finding that once you are there you cannot wait for it to be over? Does your child experience stomach aches that have no medical basis or become rude when in social situations? Do you find your relationship patterns eerily mimicking those of your childhood? Are you enduring life's experiences rather than enjoying them?

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Simi Valley?
