I am here to help you.
You walk around every day carrying such a heavy load on your mind. It is exhausting! You’re tired of your friends, relatives, and co-workers asking you if you’re okay. You try to pretend like everything is fine, but all you want to do is hide in your room and stay in bed. People tell you that you are great at your job, but you have hard time believing them. It’s like you are putting on a mask and that people don’t see the real you.
It is a constant struggle to get moving in order to get your day started. Many nights you have a hard time sleeping. Feelings of sadness, loneliness, and anxiety, are a part of your day, most days, if not every day. Concentrating on anything is really difficult.
If you are feeling lost and struggling to live day to day, I'm confident that I have the experience to help you rediscover what brings happiness to your life. Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face, and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in the future. I can help you explore these concerns with compassion, understanding and support.
In therapy, our first goal will be to work together to help you ease the pain your currently experiencing. No two people are the same, and I tailor my therapy to meet your specific needs as an individual. One of the most important tasks is creating goals together to help you grow and heal. I love helping people understand the things that are holding them back with an in-depth approach. After recognizing underlying problems, you can fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier way.
It is never too late to change and start living the life you've always wanted.
Tailored To Your Needs
