“I just can’t turn my brain off. I’m always worried about the next thing to get done and have such a hard time slowing down”
Anxiety is one of the top reasons clients come to therapy. Like trauma, anxiety can show up in different ways for people leading them to feel confused about what they’re experiencing. A few types of anxiety people can feel are health anxiety, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, separation anxiety, specific phobias, OCD, and selective mutism. The treatment for anxiety is not one-size-fits-all so I strive to work with my clients to create individualized goals and treatment plans to reduce their anxiety.
Anxiety can often be continuous and uncontrolled worry, as well as nervousness and stress - all of which impacts our physiological state as much as our physical. At its most basic and instinctual level, anxiety is a systemic response from our brain to warn us of danger. In some people this warning goes into overdrive, and we can feel like we are never safe – leading to anxiety in a host of different situations. Your anxiety does not run your life, you do. Let’s work together to get you back in control.
CAREER / EXECUTIVE COUNSELING
“I’m not happy at my job but I don’t know how to get myself to a better place professionally”
With my background in Counseling and Organizational Psychology, I have a unique understanding of the pressures today’s executives and professionals are under and how this can affect a person’s productivity, self-esteem, and professional outlook. I work with my clients to help them better handle pressure, learn to pivot when the situation calls for it, and solve various issues in their workplace and workflow. I encourage and aid professionals to figure out how to take their careers to next level and prepare themselves for incremental growth so they can reach their professional goals.
You’re sad, but not just sad. You don’t have energy, don’t want to do the things you once loved, and feel like no one understands this low feeling you have. It’s hard to sleep some days, and other days you sleep too much. Even your appetite isn’t the same. Worst of all, you feel like you’re failing to meet your responsibilities, and this makes you feel worthless. All these behaviors/feelings are signs of depression. Sometimes it shows up gradually, and other times it hits you like a bat does a baseball for a homerun. Depression is hard to overcome alone. You need someone in your corner to hold your flashlight while you find your way out of the fog. I’ve helped numerous clients find their way back to themselves and the life they love so much. Come, walk with me, so we can get you where you want to be.
