How I CAN HELP
Are you feeling anxious, worried, or stuck lately? Is your relationship just not where you want it to be? Are you exhausted by working so hard to keep it together, and not let the messy insides show on the outside?
Life is full of ups and downs. Our lives tend to have both joyful and heartbreaking moments. The difficult times, like the death of a partner, infidelity, unemployment or health issues can feel overwhelming, shake our view of ourselves, and have consequences to our relationships. Depression, anxiety, and grief can often find a foothold in our lives during these times.
I can help you navigate those difficult times and move forward.
It is normal to feel stuck, worried, or full of grief during crisis, after a traumatic event, or as a result of trauma. It is normal for relationships to get stuck in distressed cycles during and after crisis or trauma. It is normal for early childhood experiences to shape and effect our relationships with those we love. Relationships are not easy, and it is easy to get disconnected.
With the help of an empathetic, compassionate, and experienced therapist, you can reconnect with yourself, your sense of joy, and find lost connection with loved ones. If you are ready, I can help. Contact me for a free 15 min consultation.
I also offer clinical supervision to clinicians pursuing licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
