Anxiety/Depression: Many of my patients have similar problems at home and at work: STRESS: "Why do I feel angry or frustrated all the time? Why did I over-react or feel uncomfortable when he/she said that? What's going on here? Why am I being treated this way? Did I do something to encourage this treatment? Even at work I have conflict. I need to stand up for myself but how and what to say? I don't want to be written up by H. R. I can't seem to keep a healthy relationship going. I don't understand myself and why I keep repeating the same mistakes! I have a relationship, a career... I'm not satisfied. Is this it? REALLY?"
I specialize in getting to know oneself. Your strengths and vulnerabilities: triggers, "buttons" that set you "off." In stress or conflict, de-escalation of oneself is a useful tool, especially when the other person is ramping up or "losing it" in anger or despair. Support yourself and you can support another. If you abandon yourself you are lost.
I work in an interpersonal, relational way. Have you ever had someone focus entirely on you, your process and interests for 45 minutes? This kind of focused attention is unusual and can bring about interesting results. Hopefully, you will leave each session feeling more accepting and curious about yourself.
