About My Clients
Do you feel emotional pain? Are you exhausted or overwhelmed? Are you unsure of which direction to take in life? Do you have behaviors and habits you'd like to change? Are you pushing your emotions away? I understand! Emotions and feeling adrift in life can feel terrifying. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and a holistic approach to physical, mental, and emotional wellness can help. I look forward to guiding you to tools that will help you live your best life within your own values and goals.
My Background and Approach
The tools that I will help you discover are tools I have researched and practiced helping others like you. My goal, as your counselor, is to help you find tools that will help you in your life, with your specific needs. We'll work together to address your feelings of anxiety, depression, stress, anger, and feeling adrift. We'll begin with developing coping skills and mindfulness practices then move along to addressing behaviors and habits that take you away from your goals and those that help you achieve your goals and values. I frequently read and research different techniques, tools, and skills that I am excited to show you to help you on your way to living your best life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that every single person can change through learning and growth at any point in life. I believe mental health issues are contributed to by a number of factors in or outside of our immediate control. I believe we can learn more helpful responses and habits to improve our mental health regardless of the cause. I have personal experience with anxiety, depression, emotional eating, the child of divorced parents, and infertility. I know that life can be hard and frustrating at times. Through my own therapy, I have learned more helpful ways to feel my emotions and become unhooked from unhelpful patterns of behavior. I want to help you learn more helpful skills so you can achieve your goals and feel at peace. I am learning to understand the privileges inherent in society from being a white, cis, woman. I don't discriminate against anyone and love to work with people within their own worldviews and experiences. If you want to learn more about helpful skills, let me know.
