Specialization

My special training and expertise have led to the following specializations, centered around stressdepressionanxiety, and worry.  Therapy may be right for you if you have challenges in any of the following areas.

You can feel better and thrive by addressing:

Stress

  • I’m overwhelmed and having trouble coping.
  • I can’t sleep; I’m irritable all the time.
  • I don’t know how to find balance in my life.

Depression                                                   

  • I feel low almost all the time.
  • I’m not interested in anything anymore.
  • I don’t know if I’m ever going to feel better.

Anxiety

  • My mind spins, and I can’t get it to stop.
  • I worry so much and can’t control it.
  • It seems impossible to calm down.

Challenging habits

  • I don’t have any confidence in myself; I’m afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing.
  • I am resentful about my past and can’t let it go.
  • I’m stuck in my relationships, my job, my life.

Awakened living

  • What is spirituality?  How can I live an authentic life aligned with my values?
  • I want to live in the present, but I don’t know how to sustain it.
  • What is my life purpose?
