There is a myriad of reasons people seek assistance in individual counseling. Sometimes people need to make a decision about an opportunity or about a relationship, for instance. This sort of work is often short-term; we map out the issues, then work through them in a systematic way so that you can come to a decision and get on with your life. As a third party, I am able to facilitate a more objective view of your concerns so you can gain clarity.
But maybe you are contending with more significant difficulties: you are in pain, confused, not yourself...lost. I have worked with many people who feel this way. Maybe you are having a difficult time healing from a loss, grieving, recovering from divorce or a breakup, coping with co-parenting obstacles, struggling with anxiety, depression, shame or guilt. Maybe you realize you need to sort out issues from your past, whether from a previous relationship or childhood, that seem to still impact your life. You're tired of tripping over that old stuff. I can help you sort through past experiences, in order to reach new understandings thereby allowing you to focus on your life NOW! Watching and walking alongside people as they change their lives and relationships has been so rewarding over the years. Real and positive change is possible. I hope you know that. I'm here to help you!
Working together we will:
Identify and consider patterns of thought and/or behavior that are keeping you stuck and no longer useful
Identify blind spots that are holding you back, which are likely out of your awareness
We will discover fresh, new strategies as well as your strengths (Oh yes, you have many!) to help you work through the obstacles in your life, so you can live your most fantastic life and get "unstuck"
Shift the way you communicate with yourself (that automatic, negative self-talk) and others in order to create a calmer life full of healthy connections
And so much more!
If you are ready to work through those sticky, limiting, or unpleasant issues in your life, let's get started. You deserve it!
