Do you find yourself stressed managing all that life throws your way? The worry, overwhelm, and panic feels never ending. The stress may be from external or internal pressure, a life transition, or the death of a loved one. On the outside you look like you have it all together but on the inside you're crumbling; not feeling like you. Living between these two worlds is exhausting and all you want is a moment of relief. In counseling we will work together to create lifelong change so that getting through the day is less exhausting and more energizing.

Another day spent in the exhausting juggling routine of tending to everyone’s needs but your own. Your newborn kept you up all night – again. You can’t remember the last time you had any time for yourself. Contorting yourself to please everyone has transformed you into someone unrecognizable. With each role you take on – mother, wife, sister, friend – you feel further from yourself. As the stress in the pit of your stomach grows, the tension rises to your throat. You’re overwhelmed, and there’s nowhere to turn. You’ve sucked it up for too long and told yourself things are “good enough,” but they’re not. Don’t lose hope just yet.

Clients come to therapy with individual needs, goals and expectations. Difficult, uncomfortable emotions may have you doubting or criticizing yourself. Perhaps you're ready to explore and heal from recent or long ago painful, traumatic experiences. You may feel growing frustration and hopelessness with a marriage filled with conflict or disconnection. Anxiety or depression create a gnawing feeling of being 'stuck' or lacking direction and purpose. My clients describe my approach as collaborative, compassionate and encouraging, supporting your goals and empowering you through insight, strategies and rediscovery.

Most of my clients struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, people pleasing, and/or boundary setting.

Alzheimer's Therapists

What are the first-line treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease?

The first-line treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is often medication, which may be prescribed based on the severity of the disease. These include cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine, or a combination of the two. Behavioral treatments can help people cope with emotional distress, such as anxiety or anger, and explore lifestyle changes related to housing, caregiving, sleep, and finances.

When to seek treatment for Alzheimer’s?

It’s best to seek treatment at the first signs of dementia. Early warning signs of Alzheimer’s include memory problems, such as forgetting appointments or directions, as well as trouble concentrating, paying attention, retrieving words, and carrying out daily household tasks. An early diagnosis can help people slow the progression of the disease with treatment and plan for the future in terms of housing, support, finances, and legality.

Are there specific medications to treat Alzheimer’s?

Medications approved by the FDA to manage symptoms of Alzheimer’s include galantamine, rivastigmine, and donepezil for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, and memantine, donepezil, and the rivastigmine patch for moderate to severe Alzheimer’s. These drugs can help manage the disease, but no drug currently cures the disease. Medications recently approved by the FDA, such aducanumab and lecanemab may slow the disease course, but aspects of their effectiveness are still debated.

Are there natural treatments for Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease cannot be cured via natural remedies (nor via medication), but some lifestyle habits can help forestall it or slow its progression. Lifestyle activities that can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease include regular exercise, a healthy, well-rounded diet, stimulating cognitive activity, time spent socializing, adequate sleep, and stress management as needed.
