Give yourself permission to gain clarity

and healing.

Take the first step to work towards conquering the hurdles in your life.

I am called to help individuals restore their mind and move from a state of being numb, confused, and overwhelmed to a life of pure bliss.

Are you having a difficult time handling the struggles in your life? When was the last time you smiled, laughed, lived without fear or felt confident and beautiful? Have you remained at the starting line because of fear and distractions? Many are in a constant state of comparison to others and those insecurities prevent the process of moving forward.  

If you are single, widowed, divorced and feel depressed, give yourself permission to gain clarity and healing. Allow yourself to live the life you are destined to live! Failing marriages, fear of loving someone again and living with the loss of a loved one are experiences that no one should navigate alone. 

There are countless emotions such as anger, being anxious, confused, sad and frustrated that needs a listening ear. Do you find yourself helping everyone else but yourself? Are you having a hard time forgiving yourself or someone else? Have you experienced trauma? Do you feel overwhelmed as a leader?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then individual therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking.

Conflict Resolution

Have a co-worker you struggle to get along with

Can’t seem to come to an agreement with your spouse on important issues

Have an argumentative friend or family member

Want to learn how to “fight fair” with your spouse or significant other

Need help managing your emotions during an argument

Want to find healthier, more effective ways of communicating your needs

Conflict resolution therapy can teach you how to cope in challenging situations by helping you focus on finding solutions as you navigate a conflict. In any type of relationship, be it personal or professional, conflict is bound to happen. It’s not reasonable or realistic to expect two people to always agree on everything. Even though conflict is a normal, healthy part of any relationship, trying to deal with it when it comes up can feel anything but healthy or normal. 

After an argument with a friend, romantic partner or co-worker, you may avoid them in an attempt to “keep the peace”. You may hope that over time, the issue will resolve itself. By avoiding conflict or pretending nothing happened, you’ll create additional tension as this unspoken problem remains between you and the other person.

So if you...

… then conflict resolution therapy can help.

I can show you how to find the source of conflict so you can work quickly towards a resolution. I’ll teach you how to focus on a solution instead of shutting down, blaming or resenting the other person. Conflict resolution therapy will help you learn that while you can’t control the other person; you can control how you respond.

If this sounds like you, I’m confident I can help. My practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get the relief from anxiety that you deserve.

When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.

Often, these are the symptoms of anxiety:

Therapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.

Counseling for Trauma

Avoiding specific locations, sights, situations, and sounds that serve as reminders of the event

Anxiety, depression, numbness, or guilt

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.

While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or post-traumatic stress far after the event has passed.

In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

According to the four types of symptoms listed in the DSM-5

Research has proven psychotherapy to be the most effective form of treatment for trauma. Most commonly, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are used in treating trauma.

If you or someone you know match the trauma symptoms listed above, I am confident that I can help and invite you to schedule a free consultation or your initial counseling session.

Bereavement and grief aren’t light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness.

The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors.

Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.

Therapy for Depression

I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.

I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.

I hate who I am these days.

I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.

I feel gut wrenching pain, but no one understands.

My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.

Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?

Do these thoughts often enter your mind?

If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.

I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.

I understand the social stigmas that come with the label of being depressed, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.

If you are hoping to finally lighten this load and feel like yourself again, schedule a free consultation or initial counseling session.
