As we begin to work together, the focus will be to understand what you want and what is in your way. What I do is build trust and a working relationship with you so we can begin to make a realistic plan of action.
Are you anxious about events happening in your life. Do you feel you lack control, if there is such a thing?

Do certain thoughts take up too much mental space or repeat too often to be able to focus on your current or next moment. Are you simply worried about the future? If any of this sounds like you then I am here to help.
