At certain times, life overwhelms all of us. Problems pile up and we feel frustrated and defeated. We may have held things inside for months, years or even decades. We come to a place of anxiety, depression, drugs and alcohol dependence, relationship conflict, or isolation. The ease and vitality of life that we once experienced seems too far removed. At the worst, we lose all perspective and feel hopeless. We don't want to feel this way anymore. It can be so hard to take that first step and reach out for help.

Life shouldn’t be this hard. You’re feeling more and more anxious and sad, perseverating on thoughts/ past issues that don’t serve you. You realize that you're highly sensitive. Maybe you were told you were "too sensitive" in your past. You know the kind of life you want but you can’t seem to get there. You’ve heard about mindfulness and meditation but you don’t know where to start. You want a better future for yourself that includes love, fun, meaningful work/ relationships and balance.

Life is a continuing journey of growth and change. How we handle that growth and change will determine how successful we are in navigating relationships, careers, personal development, and obstacles that we come across in our daily lives. Oftentimes it is difficult to process everything going on in life when you're at the center of it, even when things are going well! Therapy is a resource to help process everything that make us who we are, the good and bad: depression, anxiety, self-confidence, trauma, identity discovery, toxic relationships, aimlessness, conflict with peers/family, career development, loss/grief, and much more.

As I enter tonight's journal entry I sit here thinking I'm not sure what happened to me. I don't feel the same anymore, not towards my spouse, not towards myself. I'm overwhelmed by the stressors of life, and they seemed to have taken over my spirit, energy and my relationships. I feel anxious, depressed, disconnected and most of all confused. I want to feel good again, I want the love of my life to see me again, I want to have confidence in myself, my marriage and most of all I want to live again. Many of us feel this way but don't express it to anyone. We begin to question is it even possible possible for any of this to change?

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard--feelings of fear, failure, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle alone is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.

I believe that every individual is unique, therefore, no single type of therapy will be effective for everyone. That is why I evaluate each person's specific needs and personality before selecting the most appropriate form of treatment. This approach is called Prescriptive Eclectic Therapy and it draws on theories and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Self Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Hypnotherapy and many others. This therapy can be brief or long-term, depending on your specific needs and goals. However, in many cases, therapy can be effective in just a few months.
