What parts of yourself do you hide? Often, we hide complex parts of ourselves out of fear. Sometimes those fears are grounded in messages we receive from meaningful others in our lives. Other times, our fears are based on very realistic cultural appraisals. Whatever the source(s), hiding yourself and your feelings can contribute to anxiety, loneliness, depression, avoidance, relationship difficulties, unresolved traumas, secretive behaviors, and unrealized potential. Within a strong, supportive, and affirming therapeutic relationship, you can fully experience the complexity of yourself without the judgment or rejection you fear.
No matter a person's background, therapy is a place where uniquely painful experiences and the daily hardships of life can be transformed into joyful growth and peaceful acceptance. I help individuals learn new ways of relating to others, develop a deeper understanding of themselves, and begin to see the world in a new light. My clinical focus has been in marital and relational counseling where I help people develop healthy communication and greater harmony in their relationships. I assist people in working through complex issues of grief and loss, and in healing from traumatic experiences.
Drug and alcohol problems look as different as the people they affect. It could be a legal issue, like an evaluation or court ordered treatment. It could be a struggling family member. Maybe you've been to treatment multiple times and establishing sobriety is still difficult. I also work with those who experience stress related to other mental illness like anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and trauma. Asking for help can be intimidating. If your unsure about what to do next, or anxious about talking to someone, a phone call is a great place to start.
Are you a experiencing emotional difficulties during pregnancy or after the birth of your child? Is your child experiencing issues with impulsivity, acting out in defiance, or struggling in school? Has your teenager become withdrawn, moody, depressed or are they experiencing anxiety in the social environment? Are you struggling with your own emotions, feeling stressed, depressed or anxious? Have you had a traumatic experience that has turned your life upside down? Do you feel isolated, lonely or overwhelmed? I can help. Goals for therapy always start with your needs and concerns, first and foremost. There is always hope!
