My Approach to Helping
I help clients identify their personal strengths and build resilience to improve the overall functioning and quality of their lives. Certain patterns of behavior result in increased stress, frustration, and even depression. It can be overwhelming when these patterns of behaving and thinking impact both the personal and work spheres of your life. Acknowledging issues and deciding to seek the help of a trained therapist is the first step on the path to enjoying a healthier, less stressful and more satisfying life.
I use evidence-based treatment and I am constantly expanding my knowledge of ways to help clients resolve past issues and lead more satisfying lives. Mental health concerns can impact any of us in our daily lives and present unexpected hurdles. You may have tried to cope with negative self-talk and self-doubt for years on your own. Perhaps you have dealt with family of origin dynamics well into your adult life and notice that it has caused significant stress, fatigue, and strain on current relationships. Mental health concerns may arise suddenly after the loss of a job, a partner or family member. Significant feelings of distress may arise even at times when great joy is expected like at the time of marriage or the addition of a child to your family.
