Do You Find Yourself Thinking?

  • I’m tired of my worries holding me back.
  • I want to stop being emotionally hijacked so often.
  • I have a good life that I can’t seem to enjoy.
  • My anxiety keeps me from advancing my career.
  • I’m  paralyzed by the fear of being judged.
  • I’m afraid something terrible is about to happen.
  • I want to feel happier and more connected.
  • I can’t stop dwelling on my fears.
  • I want my life back.

You are not alone in these struggles. The National Institute of Mental health reports that more than a quarter of the American adult population experiences some kind of anxiety, depression, or other emotional difficulty each year. If you are feeling overwhelmed, not adjusting well, or can’t cope with what is going on in your life, you may benefit from counseling.

Research has shown that your ability to recognize the benefits of asking help and support is a trait of resilience and an indicator of positive mental health. Help-seeking behaviors are indicative of self-awareness and insight, which means if you have the awareness to ask for support during difficult times that you are likely to benefit from professional counseling.

Are you experiencing uncontrollable emotional outbursts, or excessive sadness, worry, fear, doubt, hopelessness, or anger? Studies have shown that, on average, 88% of those who go to psychotherapy have improved outlooks after just one session.

Speaking to a supportive, non-judgmental caring professional counselor can be life changing. Most clients gain insights into problems and patterns, and develop new skill sets that change the trajectory of their lives. The sooner you get the help you need, the sooner you’ll see positive changes and have your life improve.

Talk therapy is usually just like a private conversation. My style is direct. Most people want a counselor who is more than just a good listener. Counseling involves support, encouragement, coaching, and helps you challenge your beliefs and barriers. I will use evidence-based talk therapy to help you identify and cope with the problems you are experiencing in ways difficult for you to do on your own.

In most cases, you’ll discuss current events in your life, relevant episodes in your past that could be affecting your present, and reports on the progress and new insights you’ve gained from previous therapy sessions. Common counseling homework includes relaxation and stress management techniques, communication skills, and mindfulness or journaling. Together we develop the steps you can take, outside of the therapy room, to support your progress, and reach your goals.
