I specialize in individual psychotherapy for men and women with a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relationship issues, career development, and goal achievement. My practice is primarily centered on working with adults and adolescents.
Anxiety takes many different forms. You may feel wound up, tense, and/or find yourself unable to stop worrying. Anxiety has a profound effect on your personal and professional relationships if left untreated. Therapy provides the space to look at what is driving your anxiety and provide insight and tools to better manage these symptoms.
Depression is a common but serious disorder, involving prolonged periods of low mood that impact multiple levels of a person’s life. Withdrawal from people or activities, difficulty sleeping or oversleeping, tearfulness, feelings of hopelessness and suicidal thoughts are some of the ways depression impacts overall well-being. Individual therapy provides non-judgmental, professional support so that you can share what is going on and find your way through the darkness.
Physical and emotional trauma often results in the feeling you are carrying a heavy burden with you wherever you go. Difficulty concentrating, disruptive sleep and intrusive thoughts may all be part of that burden. Individual therapy provides a reliable and confidential space to open up and work toward lightening the burden you carry as well as ensuring you are not carrying it alone.
Have you lost a loved one, family member, or someone influential in your life? Grief can hurt emotionally, physically and spiritually. While grief is a natural part of loss, it is not easy to move through alone. Individual therapy provides a setting where you can gain support, insight and resources for moving forward.
Relationships are complicated. Romantic, plutonic, professional or familial, we have all struggled with how complex relationships can be. If you are struggling in a relationship or if you are going through a breakup or divorce, individual therapy is a wonderful resource to provide an outside professional perspective. A limited portion of my practice is devoted to premarital counseling and couples counseling.
Many people have turned to therapy when reexamining or developing their careers. Switching careers, asking for a raise, or solving problems in the workplace do not need to be tasks you take on alone. Talking through these issues can improve your chances of reestablishing passion in the workplace, creating positive professional connections and developing a healthy career path.
Articulating and clearly defining your goals increases the likelihood they will be attained. This may sound easy but many of us find it difficult to do on our own. Working together I can help you specify exactly what you seek to accomplish and hold you accountable for your progress.
