Individual therapy to help you create your best life.
Many people come to therapy wondering how — or even if — it can really help them. They feel so entangled in their own issues that they fear there are no answers.
As a therapist working with clients of all kinds for more than 15 years, I want to reassure you that the troubles you’re facing right now have real solutions. The process begins as we gain perspective on the patterns that may be holding you back. Healing continues as we work together to retool old habits and beliefs, opening the door to new possibilities.
Therapy works when you’re fully committed
Make no mistake, individual therapy will require hard work and courage. If you’re determined to hold onto the hurts you’ve experienced in life or afraid to explore new ideas, I’m not the therapist for you. But if you are ready for the challenge of seeing things in new ways and creating the life you truly want, I’m ready to serve as your resource and partner.
If you struggle with anxiety, I’m here for you
It’s only human to feel nervous every now and then, especially in the stressful time we’re dealing with now. But if you live with persistent anxiety that seems to stay with you, no matter what’s happening in the world, it’s time to take a deeper look.
Do you often find yourself:
- Feeling nervous, restless or tense
- Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom
- Feeling your heart is racing
- Breathing faster than usual
- Feeling weak or tired
- Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything besides your worries
- Having trouble sleeping
- Experiencing digestive problems
- Having difficulty controlling worry
- Having the urge to avoid things that trigger anxiety
If you’re dealing with even one or two of these anxiety symptoms on a regular basis, please know you’re not alone. I have treated hundreds of adults who live with anxiety disorders, using a highly effective treatment known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I’m ready to provide focused care for you.
Support for your marriage and close relationships
The health of our intimate relationships is crucial to our happiness. If you don’t feel safe, loved and supported by your partner, these are signs you shouldn’t ignore.
My couples therapy practice can help you and your spouse or partner discover ways to create greater closeness and trust. The caring, supportive relationship you want and need can be created through openhearted discussion and practical exercises that help you reshape the way you relate to one another.
Even if your loved one isn’t ready to seek out therapy yet, you can begin on your own. Together, we can map out ways to begin transforming your relationship.
Helping you achieve digital wellness
As an expert certified with the Digital Wellness Institute, I am seeing more and more people who are struggling to maintain a healthy relationship with the online world. Our screens and devices definitely have a growing presence in our lives — and sometimes, the balance between virtual and actual reality can be hard to achieve.
Embracing habits that build digital wellness can help you overcome:
- Overinvolvement with social media
- Phubbing — the habit of ignoring others whenever your phone pings
- Watching too much porn, which can block intimacy with real-life partners
- Excessive online shopping, a danger to your finances
- Gaming or binge-watching that can isolate you from friends and family
