My Approach to Helping
You deserve to be free from the anxiety that holds you back. My passion is helping people to find peace and fulfillment in their lives.
Maybe you’ve identified the source of your anxiety. It could be stress related to work, family or social life. Painful or traumatic experiences in your past, a change in your life or identity, or fears about the future could also cause anxiety. Or perhaps you have a vague feeling that something isn’t right or that something terrible is going to happen, and you don’t know why. I believe that, together, we can figure out the root causes of your distress and identify a path forward.
Mental health problems often start out as ways of coping. When something bad happens, you might worry about what else could go wrong. This could lead you to over-prepare, try to control outcomes, and avoid certain situations. Over time, you may lose your ability to relax and enjoy life. I can help you to develop more effective skills and to reclaim your joy.
My approach is client-centered meaning that I will tailor an approach to meet your unique needs and support you in reaching your goals. I have a strengths-based perspective which guides me in helping you to build on your existing abilities to become more skillful in managing life’s challenges effectively.
