“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin
“Is it time to talk to someone?” – Sometimes we can handle adversity by ourselves, and sometimes we need help. Talking with a friend or family member can often do the trick, but there are times when you might want to speak freely without worrying about being judged, hurting someone’s feelings, receiving unsolicited advice, or risk having what you share not be kept confidential.
I’m here to listen to you in an open, encouraging environment where you can speak candidly as you explore what is interfering with your life right now. We’ll work together to help you:
recover from past pains, fears or traumas
explore your dreams and needs
choose what is helpful for you at this juncture
build on your strengths and talents so you can live the life you want
Life transitions – Even positive changes can often leave us feeling stressed, confused and vulnerable. And yet change, whether wanted or unexpected, can provide opportunities to become stronger, more confident, and more skilled with handling the unknown. Regardless of the transition you are facing we can work together to help quell your fears and calm yourself, so you can live your life with more ease during this transition.
Anxiety – Everyone has experienced feeling anxious–it can be healthy and informative, and is a necessary part of being human! But when anxiety robs you or begins taking over your life, it’s time for help. I can help you demystify your symptoms and support you as you learn ways to manage anxiety, so it doesn’t manage you!
Depression – Feeling blue is a normal emotion. Being persistently depressed is not. If you are unable to function in your day-to-day life, have no motivation to take care of your basic needs, or want to isolate from people you love, you could very well be suffering from depression. Depression is a treatable condition. I can help you explore your emotions, address what might be causing you to feel stuck in the muck, and move forward with solutions to recover from this most unpleasant state of being.
