Counseling and therapy provide a caring and safe space to explore thoughts and feelings that are hard to open up about. I help clients explore the changes they want to make in life, with compassion, understanding, common-sense, humor and (sometimes) a bit of tough love.
Therapy For Anxiety & Depression
Anxiety and depression are the two most common disorders I see in my practice. Read more about anxiety here. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness training for symptom management and long-term success. I also believe that happiness takes a village and help clients build a healthy lifestyle and a strong support system.
Counseling is a caring, safe and confidential space for you to explore thoughts and feelings that are hard to open up about. It is often hard to admit or share our struggles with anxiety and depression but we all struggle. This is our human condition. I am open about seeing a therapist myself and talk about my own anxiety on the blog.
Are you engaging in habits or behaviors that are difficult to stop or control even though they are causing problems in your life? Chances are, you have a lot of stress but not enough coping skills to handle it in a healthy way. You can learn to break these habits, one step at a time.
Whether you are drinking too much, using drugs, using internet porn or buying compulsively, the root problem is never addressed. So things get worse and worse and you struggle to find happiness and peace.
Counseling provides the tools to deal with the root problem without having to rely on poor habits.
Dating And Relationships
Are you struggling with your relationships to spouse or life partner, family, coworkers etc? Counseling helps to set and maintain healthy boundaries, reduce conflict and improve communication. Counseling can help clarify your boundaries, stand up for yourself and learn to say no more often. Our level of stress and quality of life is directly related to the quality of relationships in our life.
Counseling can provide a non-judgmental place to talk about them and teach you the tools to have healthier relationships at home and work.
Marriage therapy helps improve emotional safety, communication, intimacy, conflict management and overall relationship satisfaction. I work with diverse couples regardless of their marital status or sexual orientation. Read more about couples therapy here.
