Life can be hard and confusing. You can know that you would like for some things to be different in your life, but figuring out how to make those things happen can be puzzling and overwhelming especially if you are struggling with anxiety and or depression.
I work with individuals (children as young as 10-adulthood) to help them determine the things they would like to change in their lives, and we work together to come up with specific steps to make those changes a reality. It is a difficult task to make change on your own. People thrive mentally, emotionally and socially when they have a support system to encourage and help them. I am part of that support system for my clients. I am a person who they can depend on for encouragement and advice. I help them to gain insight about themselves, so that they feel more empowered about who they are and what they are able to achieve. I help my clients find ways to increase their own support system, so that they will go through life with more friends and family at their side.
We work with individuals who are hoping to:
Feel happier on a daily basis
Find a sense of purpose
Successfully manage symptoms of anxiety and depression
Better regulate emotions
Process grief and loss
Successfully manage life transitions
Determine a career or life path
Process trauma and become more empowered
Build self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s self
Receive support during difficult or painful times in their lives
Improve social skills and relationship skills
Develop healthy coping skills
Therapy can be a wonderful opportunity to learn more about ourselves, to compassionately examine the patterns in our lives that leave us feeling stuck or frustrated, and to ultimately strengthen our relationships.
This process of self-exploration often leads to people feeling more confident and connected to themselves and more capable of managing the obstacles in their lives.
