I provide counseling for individuals, couples, and families. Please see the page for the specific area you would like to learn about.
Worry too much? If stress and anxiety are getting in the way of your sleep, or keeping you from the relationships you want, you may been dealing with an anxiety disorder. Anxiety can paralyze you, and keep you from doing things you have the skills to excel at. It can keep you from being the person you want to be, or the person you really are. Counseling for anxiety can help you to push through anxious moments and live your life with a sense of curiousity instead of worry.
Feel sad or lonely throughout the day? Are you falling out of touch with activities and people you used to enjoy, or are you always in a bad mood? Depression can feel overwhelming, but with counseling you can find relief. Counseling for depression can help you to identify and remove the damaging thoughts that create and sustain depressive symptoms. Studies show that counseling is more effective in treating depression than medication alone.
Thinking about cutting down on alcohol or drugs? Maybe you have gotten a DUI or had other legal messes sap your time and money, or maybe you’re starting to wonder if your recreational alcohol or drug use has become a problem. If you are having trouble with drugs or alcohol, please act now. It is only likely to get worse if untreated. Counseling for substance abuse and addiction can give you the support you need and help you build a positive lifestyle that will keep you healthy.
Relationships are one of the most important part of our lives. I can help you fine-tuning your communication or interpersonal skills to help you build the relationships you want. If you’ve been told you’re overbearing, or ifyou feel like a doormat sometimes, you may benefit from communication skills training. Communication styles are fluid, and you can make changes with practice. Working on relationship and communication skills in counseling is one of my favorite parts of my profession — it can be a lot of fun.
I also have experience with other issues, including:
• Bipolar Disorder • Trauma/PTSD • Suicidal Thoughts • LGBT Issues • Self-esteem • Autism Spectrum • Men’s issues
