“What I am looking for is not out there, it’s in me”
Relationships can be so hard. It can be easy to feel swept up in what is going on in your environment and lose track of your own feelings, thoughts, wishes and goals. Psychotherapy is your chance to sit down with a professional, to develop more awareness, a stronger sense of who you are, more self-compassion, deeper empathy, improved relationships at work and at home, and overall effectiveness in life. You may have found yourself thinking, feeling and behaving in ways you didn’t mean to. The psychotherapy experience can be a process of seeing yourself and others more clearly, dealing with unwanted or uncomfortable feelings, thoughts and perceptions, and using this information to make healthier, more satisfying choices.
In addition to counseling, I also provide psychological evaluations for adults and children. These may include evaluations for dementia and competency for independent living, ADHD / ADD and personality. If you have an assessment need, let's talk about it.
I imagine if you choose to work with me, you would likely perceive me as caring, compassionate, insightful and knowledgeable. I find that issues we have not sufficiently dealt with have a way of coming back up and creating problems. On the other hand, you can learn how to deal with your past and decrease its negative impact, giving you a happier, more peaceful and more satisfying life—with freedom! If you think I might be helpful to you, please reach out by phone or email. I look forward to meeting you!
As much as we don’t want it to, past trauma and abuse can sometimes haunt our lives, affecting how we feel about ourselves and others. I may be able to help you untangle yourself from the abuse so you can become the person you want to be.
Anyone who struggles with anxiety knows how horrible it feels to feel constantly worried or panic. I want to help you find a way out of the fear and live confidently—fully able to enjoy your work and relationships.
Chronic illnesses can take such a toll on our emotions, energy, and relationships. There may be physical pain that others don’t understand, or losses and fears that only you know. I will listen deeply and walk alongside you to help you find peace and joy in the midst of hardship.
