Congratulations—-you love yourself enough to get the help you deserve! The stressors and stresses of everyday like can wear us down. From constantly being bombarded with the rings and dings from technological devices to the pressure to work harder and perform better, it can bring us to our breaking point or close to it. How can we operate at our most optimal level if we are overworked and burnt out? Anxiety and Depression comes from not feeling good enough for just being ourselves and trying to live up to society’s expectations.

Feel like you haven’t been yourself lately? Feel like you’re existing rather than living? I am passionate about helping my clients identify areas of their lives that are weighing them down and supporting them by releasing baggage to live a fuller, more present life. Our stressors, sadness, hopelessness, or moments of discontent can have several roots embedded deep within our history, experiences, and traumas.
Those who come to me are typically looking to become more confident and self assured, feel happier, communicate clearly and confidently, ease anxiety stemming from public speaking or interpersonal interaction, and/or find a fulfilling relationship or recover from a bad one. I am an action oriented coach, and use exercises and tangible tools to increase "stickiness," and forming of new neural pathways. I want to be clear that I am a coach, not a psychologist, therefore if you are experiencing any significant psychological difficulties, I suggest www.drhelenekarlin.com.

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or stress? Just about everyone experiences difficult times in their lives. Sometimes these are temporary, such as during or after a life transition, and sometimes these are more chronic where we become stuck. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work or school concerns, or something else, I imagine you are seeking help because you are not feeling the way you wish to feel. I also imagine that you have hope that it can get better. I utilize evidence-based therapies (such as CBT) with my clients to help them make positive changes.
Being a human can be really hard sometimes. Maybe it’s hard because there’s an area in our lives where we struggle, like in our careers or relationships. Perhaps, we’ve experienced some painful times that we haven’t fully healed from or find ourselves engaging in problematic behaviors. Whatever our struggles, I’ve found that psychotherapy can help reduce our suffering and help connect us to the joy of being alive.

Life’s travels, on and off road, tests our endurance to navigate its difficulties. If you found yourself feeling lost, stressed, out of control, anxious or depressed by the difficulties in life, I am here to help. I work with individuals who suffer from trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, substance use disorder and other mental/behavioral health challenges such as low self-esteem and challenges in life transitions. Through therapy, you'll create and maintain positive changes in daily life. We will work together towards your goals so you can be the self that you want to be and live the life that is meaningful and fulfill.
Sometimes people wonder if therapy is for them. If you are depressed, anxious, troubled in your relationships, coping with grief, struggling with past or current trauma, feeling hopeless or angry, or just trying to understand yourself better, therapy may be able to assist you. I believe we all have the answers we need inside us, but sometimes it takes working with a neutral observer to find those answers. Together you and I will work toward increased understanding of and ways to cope with whatever problems you would like to discuss. Therapy isn't easy, but it can and often does help.
Adult clients come to me when feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. Others are coping with trauma, loss, or a major life change. Using a variety of approaches, I help clients gain insight and self-acceptance, to navigate life transitions from a position of strength, to grow in relationships, and to make meaning from loss. Therapy is a wonderful form of self-care. Whether you are in crisis or just feeling stuck, I strive to be an honest, accepting, and active partner in your journey to greater fulfillment.
Are you, or is your child, feeling distressed and frustrated ... do you feel stuck , prevented from meeting life's inevitable challenges? During 40 years as a psychologist, I have been generously "trained" by hundreds of individuals, families, couples, children and adolescents seen in my practice. These experiences have taught me to approach treatment holistically, giving equal attention to the psychological, biological, social and spiritual aspects of life. While respecting the importance of scientifically validated therapeutic techniques, I also appreciate the fundamental role of the therapeutic relationship - a relationship grounded in trust, respect, compassion, and (hopefully) wisdom borne of experience.
I believe that resiliency is in each of us. You may have tried multiple ways to create change for yourself and found it difficulty to break out of unhealthy patterns. These feelings may be affecting your work, relationships, or health. I have worked with many individuals and couples who struggle with creating change long term. Whether you've tried therapy before or this is your first time, deciding to step outside your comfort zone and try something different is the first step to a more fulfilling life.
