ARE YOU AT A BREAKING POINT?
You are facing a major life change you didn’t anticipate that has you at a breaking point. Perhaps its debilitating thoughts that are keeping you stuck in dysfunctional ways of reacting and coping, increasing your stress, anxiety and depression. You may feel totally paralyzed and at a loss as to what to do. Perhaps your stress and anxiety have increased to the point that its harder and harder to function day to day, as if you are in free fall and everything is falling apart.
PIVOT AWAY FROM WHAT'S NOT WORKING
Some people in these situations try to “muscle through” only to realize that ignoring the problem just keeps getting harder to do. Sometimes people rely on antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication alone. While this can help, without addressing underlying issues, it only provides a band-aid rather than a solution. Still others look to self-medicate with food, alcohol or illicit drugs. This only complicates the issues and creates added problems.
CHALLENGING BUT REWARDING WORK
I see and help people daily just like you. It is a challenge to confront faulty ways of coping, thinking and relating or to face the challenges in your life. I work with clients to make sure the process isn’t overwhelming and ultimately very rewarding. The techniques learned and the changes established will serve you for the rest of your life, allowing you to have confidence that you can manage whatever comes your way.
DECREASE ANXIETY, DEPRESSION & OVERWHELMING FEELINGS OF STRESS.
I help women and teens with depression and anxiety improve their ability to handle stress and change. This allows my clients to gain strength, confidence and a new perspective that allows improved relationships, improved ability to handle stress and hardship and an overall peace of mind.
