I believe you are greater than your biggest challenge, your biggest obstacle, your biggest setback. I believe you are greater than your highs and your lows.
Don't believe me? I understand. I've been there and that's why I help individuals, couples and families navigate some of the toughest moments of their life. Our challenges, set backs and obstacles can feel insurmountable... but I believe that you are greater than anything that has happened to you.
Challenges, obstacles or setbacks are a natural part of life, but they can also be painful, confusing, and overwhelming. We know hard times are a normal part of life and yet many of us struggle with how to cope with what is happening or how we are feeling and aren't sure how to move forward. We feel stuck.
Let’s Get Unstuck
I work with a wide variety of issues with adults, parents and teens (12+)
Here are a few specialties I enjoy working in.
Chronic illness & medical conditions
Whether this is a new diagnosis, something you’ve been dealing with for years, or an illness that’s affecting someone you love, I am hear to listen and support you through this difficult time. We can often feel like we have lost a part of ourselves, or that we are losing someone we love, and it can be hard to find people who understand. Grief and a sense of loss is a normal part of the chronic illness experience. You may also notice feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, or resentment, or an increase in family conflict. If you have a teen with a chronic illness, they may rebel against their management or feel anxious or depressed about being different. In my work, I help individuals and families discover what the “new normal” of a chronic illness can look like and how they can succeed in relationships, career, health and overall life satisfaction.
Anxiety & perfectionism
I often describe anxiety to my clients as a well-meaning friend who is full of crap. They seem to relate to that. Anxiety is very convincing at telling us what it wants us to believe, but the consequences of following anxiety can also be difficult. We can miss out on opportunities, we can feel a sense of self-loathing or shame, we can feel worried or guilty or a number of other really uncomfortable emotions that stem from thoughts we have about ourselves and our situation. I help clients discover how to step away from anxiety’s control and reassert power in their own life.
Depression & Life transition issues
Sometimes we go through a difficult time and can clearly pinpoint the cause (a job loss, divorce, death), and other times, we are completely mystified because everything looks fine on paper. We might even feel more depressed because we don’t understand why we are feeling depressed! I support clients in working through how they doing and finding new ways to approach difficult situations, resolving the hopelessness and emptiness so that you can start feeling better.
I offer a free 15 minute consultation call to see if we are a good fit.
