While change is a normal part of life, it can also trigger painful feelings of anxiety, insecurity, worry, and loneliness. Events like divorce, sudden unemployment, illness, retirement, grief and loss, or transitioning from adolescence to adulthood can have dramatic impacts on our lives, leaving us not only confused, but sometimes paralyzing us from moving forward. If a recent change has you feeling that you have lost your bearings, I’m here to help. I offer a safe, friendly, and informal environment where we can collaborate together to discover those next steps.
There are times when we all need extra support and help in working through difficulties. I am here to help you to address the obstacles and challenges that life brings.
If you notice yourself in the same repeating negative patterns, unable to achieve the goals you set for yourself, in relationships that don’t seem to work out, have a sense that you are a failure in life, or just feeling lonely, depressed, anxious, or angry, I can help you gain clarity and a direction for growth.
Therapeutic conversations are a process of collaboration between therapist and client where problems are explored in detail. I help my clients uncover hidden skills leading to new understandings of problems, and then to new perspectives about moving forward. These collaborative conversations can play an important part in helping you see your life in new and hopeful ways.
