**PLEASE E-MAIL ME FOR FASTER TURNAROUND TIME/VM in 24 hours** Although complex, we as humans have an innate tendency to think irrationally and engage in acts of self-defeat even despite our best efforts not to. Common self-defeating behaviors that you may be struggling with include: avoidance/panic, isolation, procrastination, passive or aggressive communication, substance abuse, food, sex, or gambling addiction, and self-injury to name some. These self-defeating behaviors are linked to the unhealthy negative emotions that you may also be experiencing such as: depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame, hurt, envy, and jealousy.

I am so glad you are taking the first step to get help. It is a sign of strength not weakness to seek counseling and I commend you for it. I know how difficult it was for me to seek counseling after a car accident. The help I received was so positive, that I decided to switch majors to become a therapist. I wanted to be a part of the healing process for others to have improved coping skills and a better quality of life.

Is your child’s worry causing you to worry? Could your teen's “acting out” or behavioral issues be caused by anxiety, depression, or some underlying issue that you may not be aware of? Many children and teens struggle to manage symptoms on a daily basis. This often results in poor school performance, issues with peer relationships, family discord, and other behavioral concerns. If you’re at a loss or feeling frustrated, therapy can be a helpful way to gain an understanding of why a child may be struggling. You and your child can then learn various ways to cope with stressors. Call me for a free initial phone consultation.

Our emotional well-being is integral to our physical health. Individual or family therapy can enhance our ability to manage life's stressors, such as sudden or chronic illness, family conflicts, financial strain, or interpersonal problems, which can lead to anxiety, depression and physical maladies. Therapy is beneficial to people who struggle with a mental illness, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Enhancing insight into our problems, along with the development of healthy coping skills is empowering, and can often mean the difference between facing each day with confidence or avoidance of living the best life possible.
