Life’s challenges happen suddenly. Without warning it feels like you can’t navigate through with confidence and calm. Instead, you are plagued with worry, hesitation, anxiety, and depression. At times, life feels like a ticking time bomb, and you are desperately searching for an effective means to diffuse it. But your coping skills aren’t working well enough, or maybe they weren’t that healthy in the first place. How are you supposed to get comfortable with the challenges you are experiencing, let alone feel you are responding in a healthy way, when everything around you – maybe even your person – can be so unpredictable?
My background in the medical field gave me a special understanding of how our emotional and physical health affects one another. I use both mindfulness and strength-based approaches to help ease feelings of anxiety, depression, and distress while addressing unhelpful habits that are acting as barriers to your navigating the surrounding chaos.
We should talk. Although they may seem like it, the obstacles are not insurmountable. Therapy can help you thrive not just survive. Together we focus on your journey – one of healing. Regardless of your reason for seeking therapy, you will have your own experience and perspective that you bring to the work – it will be an honor to work with you.
