Is it difficult to manage your distress, anxiety and other intense emotions? Are you reading self-help and mental health Facebook/Instagram posts that you identify with? Don't know where to go from there? Therapy can help. Having someone guide you in understanding how you respond to the pressures of life, can have a tremendous relief in your stress, anxiety or how you feel and think about yourself. Relief and growth comes from learning what served you in the past is no longer working for you in the present. Together we can begin this journey and help you make changes to get to where you want to be.
Together we work to understand how the present may be a product of past experiences, both difficult and joyful; how things that once helped you adapt to stress, be successful, or survive life may no longer be working for you. We will learn how to change your response to distress difficult relationships and begin to live a life of possibility and hope.
I help individuals feel connected, heard and valued so they become curious to understand themselves. I guide them through a process of feeling and believing in themselves to make small changes which can eventually lead to significant, shifts in how they live their lives and become more of who they want to be. I invite you to begin this journey.
