Whether it be starting a new job (or losing one), ending a relationship, or the worldwide changes due to a pandemic, life transitions can be scary and hard to navigate. They are full of uncertainty and can cause distress. I can help you identify and address issues that may arise from life transitions. As someone in the restaurant and nightlife industry for 10+ years, I too have been affected by Covid and hope to give back to this community in this uncertain and scary time.
Feeling depressed can impact every aspect of your life and make even daily tasks seem unmanageable. I aim to help you tackle these struggles little by little to get you feeling like yourself again. You are the expert on you, and we will work collaboratively to determine achievable goals in addition to examining potential sources for your distress.
Anxiety can feel overwhelming, like it takes control of you. My goal is to help you take control back and overcome the negative thoughts and behaviors. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques (e.g. CBT and mindfulness) tailored to each individual to help you create a toolbox of coping mechanisms. You will be able to better recognize anxiety-inducing situations and mitigate the negative feelings associated.
