Change. Sometimes we are in control and decide when to change. Most often though, we have to deal with changes we did not see coming. These are often very stressful times which can be absolutely terrifying. Luckily though we can rely on our current collective understanding of time, which always moves us forward.
Learn the various tools that are available to help you learn how to cope, how to self-soothe, and how to have a deeper understanding of what function your anxiety can serve. I believe that education truly is power, and the more we learn about our nervous system, the more we can learn how to regain control and quell our anxiousness.
In private practice, I most often help those who have family members struggling with addiction and/or recovery. I have had addiction of some kind on my own life personally for nearly three decades and have professionally helped people in this field for over 12 years.
"The body knows". It is important to be present with ourselves and discover the wisdom it has to share.
Depression comes in many forms and find it important to normalize the various shades of gray these symptoms come as. I will help you uncover what can help you move back into the brightness of life. Through processioning emotions that may be unexpressed and getting to the root of your negative thinking, relief can be experienced.
Secondary trauma, burnout, overworked and underpaid -- perhaps every therapist has been there before. But, I am here to help you reconnect with your passion for helping people, starting first with yourself.
Life transitions can be challenging due to the fact that we are navigating the unknown. New territory can feel destabilizing and the ground beneath our feet feels shaky, at best. We may feel as though we are "losing our minds". Transitions can be large, such as navigating life after the loss of a loved one, an identity shift, or career changes. Sometimes they are also more subtle, such as realizing we may be outgrowing the people around us. You don't have to be alone in the confusion.
