Life is mysterious and hard all at the same time. Relationships with others can sometimes create confusion within oneself. The relationship with yourself is the one you have been in the longest and that is the one that should receive the most care. Things happen in life and our experiences help shape how we proceed ahead. Counseling is an amazing opportunity to reassess yourself and continue back on the path of life confidently and with inner peace. Each person has the capacity to be the expert on themselves; however, sometimes an extra set of eyes is needed to make sure the system is running smoothly.

When I think of clients, I picture someone who may be experiencing stress, feel emotionally drained, insecure, lost, helpless, etc. Someone who may just need reassurance that they are doing the best that they can.

Don’t be discouraged when life gets you down instead stand back up and reach out. That is what therapist are there for; to help guide you through it.

You just want the pain, chaos, and emptiness you feel to go away once and for all. Whether it is eating secretly to comfort yourself, having to drink every night to sleep, pushing yourself to achieve, or isolating yourself. Attempting to balance family, work, and your self-care can feel overwhelming and tends to end with you feeling worse about yourself and how you can't get it together. Shame and guilt keep you stationary where you are, and if you had to admit that things were not where you wanted you might actually crumble. Let's figure out a new normal, together.
What would your life be like if you woke up tomorrow and everything was just how you wanted it to be? What would be different? Therapy can help you identify and reach those goals. Whether your focus is individual, with your partner, or with a family member - the process can be beneficial and effective. My job is to help guide you through the choices, decisions, and communication patterns that are stopping you from making those improvements or changes. Therapy does not have to be intimidating or anxiety provoking. It can instead be an interactive, thought-provoking, learning experience.
Your authentic self is waiting for you! Challenging or traumatic life experiences often overshadow our authentic selves. We may feel stuck, lack motivation, or chronically procrastinate. Irrational and self defeating thoughts lead to fear, anxiety, depression, excessive worry, and may manifest in physical symptoms. When we live in this cycle too long it becomes our normal. We may recycle past trauma into present relationships. We find harmful ways to cope; such as people pleasing, codependency and addictive behaviors including, but not limited to substance abuse.
Are you needing help with relationships? Having a hard time getting through a loss? Wanting to be a better spouse? Finding that life is hard and needing support? I would love to help! Every client will be warmly welcomed into my office and together we will collaborate to meet goals to help you be the best version of you. To meet these goals, we will use tools from multiple evidenced based approaches; Gottman Couples Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy as a couple of the options.
