Anxiety is a real bitch.
Seriously - It's awful. You're exhausted all the time. You're sweaty. Your heart's beating a mile a minute. You just want to curl up with a glass of wine and some Netflix, but can’t figure out how to turn off your brain. You're starting to notice the toll your anxiety is taking on your mind, body, and relationships.
Therapy can help you better understand your triggers and gain the skills to manage your anxiety, so you can get back to living your best life.
“I just want to be happy.”
Depression can feel like a tidal wave, crashing into our lives, uninvited. It comes in all different shapes and sizes, presenting itself in varying degrees – and it all sucks. Some people can’t get out of bed. Others seem like they are functioning like they normally do, but just feel foggy or disconnected for no apparent reason. Simply going through the motions can become exhausting.
No matter where you feel like you might fall on the spectrum, therapy may be exactly what you need to get you back on track.
You value your relationships, but you feel disconnected from the ones you love.
Maybe you're a pro at telling everyone "yes" and over-booking yourself. Saying "no '' causes you inner dread, and you just know everyone thinks you're the worst. Maybe you can’t seem to maintain a healthy relationship, despite your best efforts. Or, maybe you have many healthy relationships, but can't seem to prioritize your own needs.
Together, we will help you develop the skills to improve your relationships with others, as well as with yourself. Therapy will help you better understand what boundaries are, how to set them, and when you may need them. You will become more aware of your needs and wants, and feel confident and effective in your communication.
Circumstances change. Life often looks different than we expect it to. Whether you're changing jobs, moving across the country, or ending a relationship, change can be hard to deal with.
Life comes in a series of waves. Sometimes they can throw us off balance. Therapy can help you adjust to changes in your life and to better cope with your new situation.
TRAUMA & PTSD
You were a different person before.
Memories are coming up more frequently. Emotions are becoming more difficult to handle. Your relationships are starting to suffer. You haven't been sleeping well. You just don't feel like yourself. Trauma can have long lasting impacts on both your mind and your body. There are some wounds that time, on it's own, does not heal - no matter how long it's been.
Therapy can help you heal from your past and regain control of your life.
We live in a society that seems to normalize - even encourage - burnout and perfectionism...
A society that often seems obsessed with appearances, instant gratification, and success. You're constantly pulled in a million directions. You feel like you're never doing anything for yourself. You question yourself endlessly, and you’re not very nice to yourself when you don't always meet those impossibly high expectations you’ve set for yourself. You're tired of comparing yourself to others and feeling unfulfilled with where your life is at.
It's time to treat yourself with the same compassion you share with others in your life. Therapy will help you become more aware of yourself and the type of life you want to live. You will better understand your thoughts, feelings, needs, and desires. You will become more confident in your decision making, and gain the tools needed to reach your goals.
