My Approach to Helping
As a smart, driven, and hard-working professional, you have many goals. Your work and career mean a lot to you and so do your relationships with your family and friends. When you find yourself dealing with so much stress, anxiety, overwhelm and depression, it takes a toll on all these precious areas of your life, and most importantly, on you and your wellbeing.
Stress is a normal part of life, but too much stress makes it hard to cope. Overwhelm can quickly set in and it can feel like everyday things are not manageable. It becomes difficult to focus and concentrate, our performance at work and effectiveness start to diminish, our energy becomes low, and we feel more moody than usual. We find it hard to enjoy the things we once used to and stay up at night worrying and feeling horrible. For some people, this can spiral into feelings of depression and anxiety which makes the stress and overwhelm even worse. This can feel so awful, especially when all we want is to fix our struggles and feel good again.
At this point, I believe everyone has three options. You could do nothing, and hope things change with time. You can try to help yourself, which you have probably tried and done your best already. Or you can reach out for some help, the right kind of help. The right kind of help means you get support, and tools to help you manage the emotional distress and stressors in your life.
I’m Dr. Sunita Shenoy. I'm a clinical psychologist, and I have over 10 years of experience working with professionals dealing with anxiety, depression, work and life stress, racial stress, and going through transitions related to work or relationships. I understand the significant role that work, career, and relationships play in our lives.
Most of my clients feel lost when they first come to therapy, but I very quickly work with them to get clarity on the problems they are facing and teach them skills and strategies to help solve the problems that need solutions. I will listen to you, understand you, empathize with you, and help you make the decisions you need to make but I will never judge you. I will work with you to help restore balance in your life and confidence in yourself.
If you’re like most go-getters and open-minded working professionals, you don’t just want to sit on the sidelines. You want things to improve. If you're feeling it’s time to make some healthy changes in your life and you want to get back to living a more fulfilled and balanced life, contact me.
