The decision to seek mental health support takes a lot of courage. Growth happens through our vulnerability. Depression, anxiety, trauma can feel overwhelming at times. You may find yourself wondering if you will ever feel OK? Maybe you feel like you've tried everything and continue to struggle with anxious feelings and depressed mood. You want to get through these challenging days, but find yourself stuck. It can be hard to seek therapy because you're unsure if it will help. You want to find the right therapist that will meet you where you are, and help guide your healing process.
Imagine learning to gain insight about the patterns of anxiety & depression. Imagine processing your traumatic history in a safe and supportive environment. Imagine working through challenges instead of avoiding them. You want to feel confident about your ability to work through anything life throws at you. It can be done and I can help.
A session with me begins and ends with your input. I can offer mindfulness exercises to help calm your mind and give you tools you can use outside of therapy. To make therapy accessible, I offer evening, weekend, and telehealth options. We can work together to create a plan to help you move forward. Call/email to schedule your free 20 min. consultation.
