We all love the fast pace and excitement of life. In this always-on life, we often don’t take the time we need to take care of ourselves. For many people, the fast pace of every day and stress of different aspects of our lives (careers, bosses, clients, financial crises, children, spouses and parents) can start to add up and cause real stress. This can lead to anxiety, depression and other painful challenges.
I have helped patients/clients successfully understand and master the ways in which the many currents of their lives interact and affect their emotional health. In addition to working on problems like depression or anxiety, many people use therapy effectively to:
Get to know themselves better
Set and achieve personal or professional goals
Get in touch with emotions, learn how to express emotions, or learn how to manage emotions
Better understand how your past is affecting your present.
Whether it’s couples counseling or family counseling…I customize therapy to best suit each client by drawing from a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, and Mindfulness Meditation. Learning and using these modalities enables clients to find the best path to healing and growth in their own lives. The length of therapy depends on the client.
