I utilize mindfulness for many of my clients who experience anxiety in different forms. This may look like deep breathing, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and learning to be in the present (often a combination of all of these!)
CBT provides excellent tools to deal with anxiety, depression, OCD, and other road blocks. In a short period of time I can teach you relaxation techniques, mindfulness exercises, and how to refute negative thoughts that clutter your mind so that you can focus on what you truly are passionate about!
I work with couples using primarily the Emotion Focused model of couples work. I love watching couples learn to communicate and grow towards each other! If you are wanting to strengthen your relationship, improve your communication, and learn to express your feelings in a healthy way, couples counseling might be right for you. I am an inclusive therapist and work with all couple dynamics, including the LBGTQ+ community and folks in the poly and kink communities.
I have extensive experience with anxiety disorders, chronic worry, and panic attacks. As someone who had her first panic attack at age 14, I can not only empathize with people who struggle with anxiety, but have learned many amazing tips and tricks along the way in my own journey towards health!
I have worked with many couples of all orientations to learn now to communicate and build a better life together. Here are some topics I work with most often: Navigating the path to intimacy Effectively sharing and communicating emotions Creating romance between best friends Juggling career, children, and intimacy Being vulnerable Building and repairing the safety of trust
Family conflict is incredibly stressful and hard to understand when you are wrapped up in it. Counseling can help tremendously with clarity and learning to set healthy boundaries with family members so that you can be the best version of yourself in a family unit. I work with many different types of families, but specialize in self-care for family members that deal with estrangement or boundaries.
Navigating chronic illness along with mental health symptoms can be difficult, but you don't have to go it alone. I can help you utilize tools to successfully manage these conditions and have the best quality of life for you and for your family.
The world is nuts right now. We could all use some extra support.
