Do I really need counseling?
Sometimes you can help yourself or can get help from friends and family. It is common for people to feel that they should be able to handle situations on their own but at other times it is more helpful to have an objective listener. Counseling can help you identify options, future goals and feelings to help enhance your emotional well-being.
If You Are Struggling, I Can Help
Are you struggling with negative or unhealthy coping skills? Are you feeling stuck or unable to make changes in your life? Do you suffer from mild or severe anxiety, panic or worry that causes you difficulty at home, work or socially? If these struggles sound similar, I am happy to help you on a path to wellness.
Counseling is a method to help you explore and reach new personal goals. We will work collaboratively as you begin to look at the areas of your life that bring you difficulty. My goal is to help you increase positive emotions, while releasing unwanted thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
As a seasoned therapist, I use a relational framework that integrates Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and interpersonal-dynamic theories.
I specialize in evidence-based Cognitive Behavior Therapy for anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders and other anxiety-related problems in adults and teenagers.
If you are thinking about starting therapy, it is a good idea to speak to several licensed therapists before selecting one. Look for someone with whom you feel comfortable talking and sharing your feelings. The right therapist is someone who you feel is a good “fit” and whose knowledge and experience can help you with the unique challenges you face in life.
