Modern life is stressful, but when "stress" becomes incapacitating it is more accurately labeled anxiety. The physical and emotional price we pay for untreated anxiety is high and often, unnecessary. Self-soothing and stress management tools are essential but rarely taught. Let me help you learn to settle your physical and emotional states so we can discover the causes of your anxiety and ways to address it.
Is the clock ticking ever more slowly at work? Do you wake up dreading the day, and finding that even days off are a drag? Are you feeling uninspired in the areas that used to inspire you? That could be burnout. High performers, at work and at home, are especially susceptible to "square wheel syndrome" - that feeling that everything requires more effort than it should and the loss of "flow". There are ways to address this, but everyone has a different path. Let me help you find yours.
Our jobs are hard - we provide support to those going through stressful, difficult times, learn more about our clients than their friends and family, help them with the heavy lifting of healing, and then we go back to our own lives. Without some support, therapists become over-burdened, dull, burnt out and even emotionally and physically unwell. The best therapists are those who practice what we preach - getting help and support in our own lives. After 30 years in the field, I get it.
Does it feel like you can't quite get it together after an event or change? Even good changes, but definitely harder ones, can leave us feeling like we are in over our heads. When your usual methods of coping with stress are not quite doing the job, it's time to get some help. Even short-term therapy can provide you with lasting tools to make transitions and adjustments smoother, so you can face changes with courage and skill.
