No matter what you’re dealing with, the twists & turns of life can make you feel absolutely alone sometimes.
You may feel like a burden for bringing up your problems, like they are small compared to things other people are dealing with. Maybe the world around you has made you feel like you should just be able to pull it together and get through this on your own. It may feel heavy for you to be here reading this because it's not comfortable or easy for you to ask for a helping hand. I get that. You are the one your friends and family turn to and confide in when they are going through a rough patch and are finding that it's way harder figuring out what you need to feel supported and more balanced.
We’re all just trying to survive.
We’re all just trying to figure out how to make our lives work.
Despite still doing what needs to get done for the day, working hard, supporting others... something's missing. Your mind feels flooded with these unwanted and undesirable feelings: what is wrong with me, why can't I shake this, when am I going to stop feeling stuck. As a way to cope with these unwanted feelings, you notice that you're drinking more than before, are isolating from loved ones, preoccupying yourself with work or chores, "perfecting", or not feeling a desire to connect to others or things that you value.
“Imagine if we obsessed about the things we love about ourselves"
You are here because you want to feel less anxious, more connected, more secure, and happier. You give a lot to the world and it's time for you to give yourself some care that lasts for the long-term. You are tired of your days revolving around trying to cope with stress, anxiety, substance abuse, or an adjustment. You want help navigating a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.
I have really good news: I can help you.
My goal as your therapist is to assist you in navigating through life’s hoops with individual counseling. I will help you find healthy, effective ways to cope with whatever stressors -- large or small -- you may have in your life with the ultimate goal of helping you feel like you can not only breathe again, but thrive again. I can help you identify the things in your life that are causing you to struggle and show you that you have what it takes to conquer it, and that you are worth the work it’s going to take for us to figure that out together.
