The most difficult thing might be making that initial phone call to ask for help.
I am here to help you.
In any helping relationship, compassion, understanding and support are key. 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.
It is hard and exhausting to walk around everyday carrying such a heavy load on your mind. You try to pretend like everything is fine, but all you want to do is hide in your room. You’re tired of your friends and co-workers asking you if you’re okay. Every day you have to struggle to get out of bed, you’re feeling so sad, stressed or anxious, and you can’t concentrate on anything.
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.
If you're interested in becoming a happier, more fulfilled you, I'd love to work with you every step of the way. Please contact me today!
