Often we tell ourselves, "I should be able to handle this." This idea has served us in the past as we have built our careers, but sometimes our self-reliance becomes a burden as we find ourselves suffering in isolation, afraid to ask for help once we need it. We may find we are using avoidant coping mechanisms excessively. We want to feel good about work again, we want our relationships to bring us joy again. Yet we also may have stopped hoping things could get better, except on occasion when things may seem too much to bear and we privately dare to hope.

You’re reluctant about medication. A loved one, therapist or doctor recommend you consider medication. It’s been in the back of your mind for a while now. Your our symptoms are almost unbearable. Your performance at work is starting to slip. Your relationships feel distant or a bit rocky. Right now, you just don’t have the emotional and physical energy you need to be present for the people you love. Yet you've continued to push forward everyday white knuckling life. And that is no way to live. It's time to love your life! At this point you’re willing to do whatever it takes to feel like yourself again.

Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful.
