The experience of intense and often painful emotions is a normal part of human existence, sometimes this struggle can become so overwhelming it begins to greatly impact one's ability to function, maintain and improve interpersonal relationships, and lead a valued life; leaving us feeling stuck. Therapy allows us to process these emotions, stop the experiential avoidance, and develop more constructive and adaptive ways of dealing with life's challenges and transitions. Through a collaborative, empathic, and values-based relationship, we can work towards increasing one's psychological flexibility, behavioral workability, and coping skills to live a life worth living

Just like many others, you are probably affected by the impact of Covid on your life. Sometimes it is a hard change from "before Covid" to "constant Covid". While I can't make Covid go away, I can help with some of the challenges- juggling work from home, keeping your kids safe and your relationships strong while also practicing self-care. I have been hearing from quite a few clients that say therapy has given them a chance to evaluate what is important, and what really doesn't matter. Some of my clients have recently said that Covid allows them a chance to a "do-over". This could be you.

Common examples of issues that these clients face are trouble setting boundaries, feeling overwhelmed, relationship issues, lack of self-esteem or difficulty managing their emotions. These clients are hoping to increase their coping skills in these areas and want resources to assist in navigating their symptoms or need a safe and nonjudgmental space to talk things through. Evaluating all aspects of life through a collaborative relationship, we can work to decide how my client can live a thriving, healthy life.

Additionally, current experiences, stressors, and traumas, can impact our mental health and well-being.
