Do you feel weighed down by stress and anxiety? Like something is looming over your shoulder that you just can’t grab ahold of. You may be struggling with feelings of anger, grief, loss, or even just negative thoughts in general. No matter what your struggle may be, seeking help is the first step on your journey to wellness. I have worked with clients of all backgrounds, including those dealing with domestic violence, teens and children coping with trauma, veterans struggling with PTSD, and more. I know it can be hard to share your painful experiences with others, but together we can work through the pain to find your true potential and help you gain a sense of empowerment.
When we meet, I like to focus on your total wellness by incorporating physical, emotional, and mental dimensions. We will utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you better understand why you have the thoughts and feelings you do. Together we can reshape your perspective on difficult situations, and find positive coping skills to help relieve stress and anxiety. With children, we will use various techniques to help them open up and understand their feelings, including Play Therapy, Art Therapy and Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT). If you would like to incorporate spirituality into your journey, I am more than comfortable walking alongside that with you.
Whether you are an individual adult trying to overcome obstacles and find peace in your daily life, a couple dealing with relational conflicts, a parent seeking positive discipline techniques for your children, or anyone else who feels like they can benefit from counseling, I’m here to help. I want to see you regain control of your life and have the power to live it freely, happily, and confidently. Schedule an appointment with me today to start your journey of becoming the best “you” that you can be.
