You want people to think you have it all together, but deep down you’re struggling with anxiety that holds you back from living the way you want to. You may be fed up with second-guessing decisions, relating accomplishments to worthiness, struggling with setting boundaries, or never feeling good enough. 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 quiet your mind. You’re ready to embrace discomfort now so you can feel confident in yourself later. Most of all, you’re ready to take control of your anxiety.
As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.
Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
You’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. The stress shows up in your body and mind. Your back hurts. Your head hurts and you struggle with sleep. You've gotten used to putting yourself last--ignoring your needs. You say "I'm ok...I'm fine; I've just gotten used to it.; it is what it is; "I'll take care of me later" but later never comes. You try to keep pushing. But you're screaming in silence hoping someone hears and helps; Deep down you know there’s more to life. You want to be healthy and whole. Allow someone to help care for you, listen to you, and build you up.
