You can be Happy, You can live a happier more meaningful life. I work with women who operate with either anxiety, worry or depression. Do you find it hard to relax? Is your mind always on alert? Are your muscles tight , chest heavy? Are you paralyzed by catastrophic thoughts? Many women function with a low grade anxiety (worry), high functioning anxiety, (suffer behind closed doors), or have what is called generalized anxiety. Generalized anxiety can develop into panic attacks. Most women have had anxiety since childhood and are 60% more likely than men to have anxiety and approximately 20-30 percent of people with anxiety suffer from depression. Far to often anxiety seems normal when you have it all the time but it also has an impact on all areas of their lives. There is a huge difference between healthy anxiety and chronic anxiety. Anxiety relief is about changing both the physical and emotional causes and having healthy tools to harness the anxiety. Imagine what you could do with all the energy that is being consumed by being anxious and worried. I can provide relief from anxiety and depression.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Do you find yourself saying things like: " I can't turn off my thoughts", " I am tired all the time", " I over think every little thing", It is hard to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression on our own. Anxiety is becoming more and more prevalent and women have a harder time during being perimenapause (which can last upwards to 15 years and menopause. There are different types of anxiety and depression. We can work together to identify your type and learn your needs, and goals, so you don't have to suffer alone. Anxiety and depression does not have to rob us of the lives we want to be living. I really hope we can work together.
