Feelings of overwhelming sadness or nervousness don’t have to be a part of your daily life. I have extensive experience assisting clients with managing the symptoms of depression and anxiety. These issues may leave you feeling exhausted and with low energy in spite of a good night’s rest. You may be irritable or on edge, snapping at co-workers and loved ones. There is help and hope.
Due to a family situation, I have experienced individual, couples, and family counseling from the other chair. My own counseling experiences have shown me that not every counselor is the right fit for every client. Finding the right counselor is not easy but it is crucial to the healing process.
Today’s society can be particularly tough to navigate as a teen or young adult. Issues of low self-esteem can lead to self-harming behaviors such as cutting, promiscuous behavior, or thoughts of suicide. I assist clients in addressing the underlying issues while building upon their natural strengths. Together we will build a toolbox of safe, effective coping strategies to lessen the need for risky ones.
The clients I have helped have dealt with symptoms of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma. I primarily provide services to individuals. My experience includes older teens, young adults, adults and seasoned adults.
As a counselor I believe that collaboration is the key to successful therapy. I will work with you to provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment in which you can grow and develop into your best self. I utilize tools and techniques from a variety of theoretical backgrounds to ensure that therapy is tailored to the needs of the client. It would be my pleasure to assist you in unlocking your personal potential.
