The stress of daily life can affect us in different areas; career, financial, relationship and family issues. As time passes, if we are not mindful of behaviors, things can fester increasing symptoms of anxiety, and depression. My approach is to unravel false belief systems, with either solution focused, and at the Client's choice, a psycho-dynamic, psychotherapy approach. Sometimes we need to look at the past. I believe it is acceptable to focus on present day solutions. Overwhelming feelings can be a detour to our true authentic selves. Counseling is to effectively set, and achieve, goals to be our true, unique, authentic selves.
