My Approach to Helping
Anxiety is the leading cause of women entering therapy in my practice. You do not have to allow anxiety to cripple your life. My purpose as a therapist, is to work with you in identifying what is causing your pain. Then, we can work together on making effective changes. I enjoy working with high school and college students, who experience difficulty with relationships, focusing on academics and other life transitions.
Working with women, who experience emotional pain in personal or work relationships are of special interest to me. As are senior citizens, who experience difficulty transitioning from one phase of life to another.
More Info About My Practice
My specialties are helping women and adolescent girls, who experience anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I have learned that life transitions such as changing jobs, school, relationship changes, grief and trauma may lead to isolation, anger, sleep disturbance, substance abuse, overeating or under eating and low self-esteem.
Hoping to support and guide you towards feeling better and reaching your goals.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy can be your road to peace and growth. Often, I think about the fact that we are only as sick as our secrets. What are your secrets? If you feel guilt, remorse, anxiety, depression, shame or other pain due to secrets psychotherapy can help. By sharing our secrets with someone who is non-judgemental and trusted we open the way for self-acceptance.
Feelings of self-acceptance promote higher self-esteem. With higher self-esteem comes an opportunity for emotional healing and growth.
