You want to feel like yourself again

You’re burned out, feeling stuck, and looking for change. Life’s stressors feel unmanageable, taking their tool on your health, relationships, and career. You’re ready something to be different. You want another person in your circle. You want someone you can trust to open up to. You want to feel like yourself again.

You aren’t alone – I can help.

In counseling, you will gain extra support, coping skills, and a trustworthy counselor who’s here to support. You’ll notice improvements in your overall well-being and life satisfaction. Your feelings aren’t a problem. You aren’t judged, pushed, or pulled in any direction. I walk alongside my clients, giving my patience, undivided attention, expertise, and care.

Kids and teens counseling

Are you struggling to connect with your child or teen without starting an argument? Do you miss your fun, lovable, and thoughtful kid? Kids and teens may not know how to get the help they need. Instead, poor mental health may show up as problems at school and at home. Dishonesty, acting out, and dropping grades can all be indicators that something bigger is going on.

Let me connect with your kids. Give them another person in their circle whom they can trust and be open with. Let’s tackle this together.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) management

Counseling helps us slow down and focus. Clients learn sustained attention, organizational skills, and task management techniques in therapy that help them with their daily life needs. Find unique strategies that work for you. Send me a message and let’s discuss your personal therapy goals. 🙂

Stress and anxiety therapy

Excessive stress, panic attacks, and constant worrying puts you in a constant state of discomfort and nervousness. You may struggle at work or school, too focused about what could go wrong. You get stuck in your head. These may feel like normal struggles, but they don’t have to be!

My clients manage their stress and anxiety using relaxation training, mindfulness, and coping techniques learned in therapy.

Self-esteem and confidence counseling

Social media, TV, and social comparisons can make you your own worst critic. You are constantly criticizing yourself and comparing yourself to others. It’s hard to focus on anything else but your own shortcomings. Find your confidence and live a life you love – reach out for therapy today.
