Feeling stuck can be painful, no matter the cause. And if you feel stuck for long enough, frustration, self-doubt and self-criticism can make it feel impossible to find the skills and motivation to conquer your difficult challenges by yourself, and too scary to ask those you know for support.
Counseling can help. I work with both individuals and couples, and in our sessions together, we will cultivate a real relationship where you can feel safe even when vulnerable, comforted in your struggles, and encouraged as you are guided toward the resources you need to feel more grounded in the world, no matter what your starting point.
Counseling can help you find relief from:
- Difficulties in your personal relationships
- Feelings of sadness, hopelessness or despair
- Feeling overwhelmingly anxious or nervous
- Frustration about your family dynamics
- Feeling stuck and frustrated with your work
- Difficulty controlling or experiencing emotions
- Grief (related to any type of personal loss)
- Frightening experiences that are difficult to forget
You have more strength than you know. I can help you find it. I work relationally, narratively, and humanistically, using the client-therapist relationship, your story, and my genuine trust in your own pull toward health to help you find pathways out of difficult patterns and situations. You know yourself better than anyone else, and my job is to help you generate curiosity and clarity about your own personal processes so that you can make conscious choices about your next steps in life.
We will tailor our work toward your specific concerns and help you heal the unique patterns you are struggling with, whatever they are. The challenge of facing these difficulties may seem overwhelming, but I invite you to feel empowered by the opportunity to find a more comfortable, healthy footing in the world.
