Depression can look and feel a number of ways. It can be the lack of motivation to get anything done. Or the overall numbness to all or any emotions. It could also be nearing the edge of feeling like you can't take it anymore. I offer empathic counseling for people struggling with depression. However, if we don't make a good fit, I'm also happy to offer referrals to other counselors. My main goal is that you get the care you need.
I have worked with clients of all ages on issues of anxiety. Especially after the past year, it's safe to assume that everyone is experiencing some level of it. And yet, anxiety can show up in a myriad of ways: panic, fear, insomnia, low self esteem, chronic perfectionism, or that constant sinking feeling that everything is on the verge of falling apart. I offer a unique counseling method that seeks to address the symptoms of anxiety as well as discovering the root causes.
I specialize in treating clients who have experienced narcissistic abuse over their lifetime. The term narcissistic abuse is used to categorize the way a person experiences emotional abuse and manipulation when in a relationship with someone exhibiting narcissistic behavior. This “relationship” does not necessarily have to pertain to a romantic partner. It could also be with a family member, a friend, a coworker, or any other important relationship that is impacting your life.
While I also use CBT often, I always pair it with Emotionally Focused Therapy because it allows a more well-rounded approach and links together the cognitive with the emotional spheres of a client's experience.
Depth therapy provides the basis of my orientation because it's the beneath the surface and in the depths that real change is made.
I have researched attachment theory and utilize its theories in most of my therapy interventions, particularly on issues of family systems, relationships, trauma, and boundaries.
