I focus on strength-based coping skills.
Overwhelmed? Everyone needs help occasionally through life transitions. Do you have trouble saying no? Do you have traumatic or abusive experiences (or episodes of panic)? Do you feel like you do not value yourself enough or have difficulty setting boundaries? I have extensive helping experience with these and other issues. Learning to value yourself is a crucial step towards improving how you feel and improving your relationships. I work to get to the root of these issues.
