Now more than ever, it seems like our professional and personal pressures are at an all-time high. People will spend money on a personal trainer or a home cleaning service, however, society is finally realizing the importance of professional mental help. I assist clients who experience a myriad of symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, or relationship conflicts. It has been my joy to see my clients experience symptom relief and the satisfaction of a problem solved. I look forward to partnering with you to a place of health and wholeness.
Sometimes we say or do things that deeply hurt the ones we love the most. When unresolved offenses pile up, it is easy to focus on the content of what has been said or done. When that happens relationships often get stuck. Strong emotions such as anger, depression, and anxiety can stymie resolution or reconciliation. Learning how to process the dynamics in your relationship can empower you to make the changes you desire. Education and experience can help move you out of rigid roles and towards more authentic and satisfying relationships. Working with a competent therapist can provide the support needed to experience change.
Not every client comes with a particular relationship issue in mind. Some of my clients have come to therapy to “work on themselves” or to reach a personal goal. I have assisted clients who wanted to work on finding their “voice”, overcoming social phobias or improving school performance to name a few. Goal setting is important, but it can be discouraging when you don’t attain your goal or if you are surrounded by critics. My clients have been courageous to look closely at what is holding them back from their dreams and to take action. I am happy to help you find that momentum towards your goals.
When clients come to therapy with a particular problem they want to solve, therapy can often be brief and solution oriented. I provide a neutral perspective to clients’ problems and offer my skills as a systemic thinker.
