There is a gap between the way you wish life would be and the reality of life. Anxiety and Depression are just overwhelming and it makes it hard to connect to loved ones, get daily tasks done, and think clearly. You notice yourself feeling so disconnected. And you are finding it hard to have the drive to get things done. Where is the joy in life? You remember enjoying things but now everyday is just gray. You want to be able to feel like the Real You again! Not hidden by anxiety and depression.

You're struggling to control the negative storyteller in your mind. You imagine catastrophic scenarios linked to everyday moments, actively planning for how people will respond to what you say or do. That inner narrative is draining your mental energy, protecting against something that isn't going to happen. The easy option is to put up walls, blocking people from being able to hurt you. But that only makes you more fearful and lonely. What if you could find a way to have healthy boundaries that allow people to connect with you? A way to relate that feels wonderful?

Therapy to me is a process of discovery and rediscovery, reworking patterns of behavior, or beginning to change thoughts or beliefs that are no longer relevant or useful for our current self and life. It's engaging thoughtfully in your life, taking an active role in your relationship with yourself and others, and fostering the type of self and change that you desire. My role in your process lies around engaging in thoughtful discovery, working through challenges and resistance that comes inherently with the onset of change.

It is a really hard time in our world to be a kid or teen right now. It's also a really challenging time to be a parent or caregiver trying to figure out how to best help and support your child/teen (and yourself also!). We have all taken a deep dive into the unknown as we are trying to piece together some semblance of a "normal" life and routine for our families. I continue to see kids, teens, and their grownups frequently struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, and isolation. Families are also struggling to manage day to day healthy relationships living under the same roof more now than ever before.

There are many approaches to treating pain. Counseling deals primarily with common issues such as relationship problems, job stress or life changes. Psychotherapy goes into more depth and deals with specific symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive traits. The goal of psychotherapy is not to "fix" external problems, although that can be the result; rather, the purpose of psychotherapy is to understand the internal world of the client. Change and struggle are inevitable -- but as we come to know and accept ourselves, we begin to respond to change and struggle in ways that cause us less distress.
