Feeling stuck and searching for a path forward? I work with clients struggling with anxiety and decision-making who are ready to build momentum in their lives. You might be a highly sensitive person, people-pleaser or simply struggle to know what you want out of life. That's ok, I've been there too! Together we will explore the messages from your mind, body and soul to gain clarity on what you are needing and begin creating a new path forward.
I've undergone training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and have personal experience with mindfulness practices in my own life. On a basic level, mindfulness involves conscious awareness of our present moment experience to empower us to make choices from a place of greater intentionality. I find that connecting with nature is a wonderful way to practice mindfulness and I offer various practices in session that can be continued outside of our work together.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy involves making connections between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors to help you feel more empowered in your life. Together we will examine how the stories you tell about yourself and your life may be negatively impacting your emotional self and the choices you make. Bringing awareness to thoughts, feelings and behaviors and understanding how these are separate, yet connected parts of our experience can bring insight to unconscious patterns in our lives.
I offer a coaching series that is six sessions over three months with an emphasis on action towards your unique goals. This is a more structured approach to personal growth whereas therapy is an open-ended process of exploration that may cover a wide range of topics and goals. While the structure to therapy is different, we can always incorporate solution-focused work into our time together. I love supporting motivated clients who are ready for change and looking for a growth oriented approach.
Anxiety, stress and worry are dynamics we all deal with in our lives. It could be a lifelong relationship with anxiety or present as a situational reaction to stressful life events and triggers. I've worked extensively with clients on anxiety related concerns and can support you in developing a more peaceful relationship with anxiety. I draw from skills in CBT, mindfulness and somatic awareness.
I'm finding this theme is showing up a lot in my practice these days! Codependency can mean a lot of different things- it could look like people-pleasing or perfectionistic behaviors, putting the needs of others before your own, having trouble separating your emotions from those of others, or constantly questioning yourself in your relationships. This also applies to individuals who have struggled in relationships that involved frequent manipulation and gaslighting.
I'm here to support you in coping with and adjusting to life in the age of COVID. I offer a space to process the changes in your life and to proactively work on strategies for moving forward. Together we can implement skills for managing worry, create individualized self-care routines, and find purpose during this time of significant transition.
As a helper and healer, I've experienced compassion fatigue myself and it's a very real and overwhelming experience. My therapy and coaching services can support you in creating self-care routines and developing mindfulness skills to stay present with yourself and your emotional needs. This typically leads to boundary work as healthy boundaries are necessary to make space for your own wellbeing.
"Personal growth" is inevitably part of the therapy and coaching process but it can also be the center of the work if that's important to you! I will support you in identifying specific changes you would like to make and developing strategies to work towards goals. Together, we can explore your core values and design a life consistent with those values. My coaching series is a proactive approach to personal growth with emphasis on learning and action.
