You never know when anxiety will consume you. One moment everything is fine, and out of nowhere anxiety hits you. Overwhelming thoughts flood over you after an argument with your partner. You tell yourself over and over your boss is making work unbearable, and your partner is unsupportive. Time between peace and stress is getting shorter, and you wonder if there’s any way to break free from negative thoughts. It’s affecting every aspect of your life. Work is unfulfilling, your relationship is suffering, and your anxiety is high. Has stress and anxiety become your norm? Do you just keep going hoping for a solution?
I can help you. Using a combination of strengths-based tools like CBT and DBT, we’ll work together so you understand the origin of unhealthy learned behavior. Together, we'll identify the behavioral patterns causing you distress. Then, we’ll create a solution-focused therapy model with interventions tailored to your unique strengths, talents, and interests.
Recognize the origins of your triggers and control the influence over you. Choose partners who are accountable and treat you with the love and care you deserve. Stop spending all of your energy trying to change people who don’t want to change. You don’t have to struggle with this alone. Call me now for your free consultation, and let’s get started today!
