My Approach to Helping

You can't get the negative thoughts out of your head. You just want to feel normal and know that everything will be okay. Yet your mind spins into a worst-case scenario no matter where you turn. No one understands, and getting close to people is hard because you’re fixated on it ending badly. The fear of rejection has made you isolated. You keep telling yourself it’ll go away, but the vicious cycle continues day after day. You want to let people in, but it’s impossible. Your emotions are all over the place, and it’s overwhelming. Even your few friends are now turning away. You can't remember the last time you felt real joy.

Through our work together, we’ll explore your life experiences and alter the distorted thought patterns. You’ll implement mindfulness techniques that reduce negative thoughts so you can experience hope. Using some of the most powerful techniques available, like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), you’ll reshape your internal landscape to be happier and more supportive.

It’s time for you to overcome the worries holding you back. Imagine yourself with a clear mind and confident smile that says, “I know who I am and where I am going.” Connect with people that bring you joy. Don’t lose any more time to anxious thoughts. Discover your ideal self and take the reins back to your life. Click to call for your free consultation.
