Navigating through life’s challenges can feel overwhelming, and when such feelings are left unattended to, we can find ourselves struggling with a variety of destructive emotions.
In life, we hold multiple diverse roles. Within our roles, we face the pressure from society, our culture, our family, our friends and mostly ourselves, to live them all and live them well.
As women, we face complex challenges unique to the multiple roles that we hold in our lives. We are daughters, girlfriends, wives, mothers, friends, grandmothers, professionals-and simply women in culture. Women are often the center and the glue of a family or a work project and the source of nurturing to children. Wrapped up in everyday responsibilities, it’s easy to overlook the warning signs of depression and anxiety and find yourself feeling stuck, disconnected and out of sorts.
Men in society, are often under pressure to be emotionally strong, successful, in control and not show their emotions or vulnerability, thus often finding themselves feeling withdrawn, stressed, angry and isolated.
Suppressing feelings and not working through psychological issues, can culminate into a host of destructive emotions and behaviors. If you are holding onto past hurts, feelings of anger, worry, frustration, sadness, shame, loneliness, overwhelming stress; therapy can help. If you are struggling with feelings of depression, anxiety, negative thinking or feel gridlocked by current or past emotional trauma, you don’t have to work through it alone.
Whatever your circumstance may be, therapy can be the first step towards an empowering journey of self awareness, self compassion and positive change. In our work together we will explore your thoughts, beliefs, and values; as well as your relationships and life experiences. Together we identify the root of toxic thoughts and behaviors that are keeping you from living a bountiful life. We create the space you need to move forward, while gaining insight and learning new coping strategies that guide you to what you truly and deeply want out your of life. My goal is to help you move through life’s challenges with greater ease towards a place of wellness and inner peace; helping you reach your optimal emotional well being.
Depending on your needs, I draw upon various therapeutic techniques. I use a mind-body approach incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Self Compassion along with Lifespan Integration Therapy and Comprehensive Energy Psychology Therapy to gently bring resolution to past hurts by integrating the neural systems in the body and mind. Each of these techniques, when used alone or together, can help overcome anxiety, depression and emotional trauma.
Who would you be if you were not burdened by what’s worrying you?
