My Approach to Helping
Anxiety issues are the most common psychiatric problem people face. Dealing with anxiety on a day to day basis can leave one feeling exhausted. Worry or concern over problems can leave one feeling tense, anxious or nervous. Many people worry over events that may occur, problems with family or friends, finances, health, job and or relationship issues. You may later find that the things that you worried about never happened. Worry may be about things that you know are beyond your control but you still find it difficult to control your worry. People often worry about being embarrassed in social situations or fear having panic attacks. This may effect your quality of life.
Meeting with a therapist for the first time to discuss your concerns may feel difficult at first. This is a positive first step however, to resolving problems. I am passionate about helping others develop strategies to overcome problems and learn coping skills. As a therapist I strive to provide a safe and judgment free environment where you can feel free to discuss concerns you may have. Contact me today to see how I can help you.
More Info About My Practice
An important aspect of the counseling process is the relationship between the counselor and therapist. I have worked with clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, mood disorders and substance use disorders. Many people seek therapy due to problems with relationships or due to desiring behavior change. I believe that sharing your feelings and thoughts is the first step to gain a better perspective on what is troubling you. By sharing your story in a comfortable and safe environment, insights, strategies and new ways of coping can be developed. If you need help with issues of anxiety, addiction or depression, reaching out for help is the first step. Contact me today. By sharing your concerns, a plan can be developed to address what is troubling you or keeping you stuck. I would like to work with you on the individual issues or difficulties that you face.
As a therapist, I like to help people to better understand the problems that are bothering them. Through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, we will look at your thoughts, emotions and behaviors to see how they work together. We will look at processes that effect your behavior to make lasting changes and help you cope with issues in your life. I also practice an emotionally focused approach meaning working with you on understanding how emotional experiences you have had effect your life and current experiences.
