Therapy For What You’re Going Through

Sometimes you come to a break-point where you know things have to be different. You might be feeling stressed, exhausted, chronically anxious or depressed. Or caught in negativity even when things are looking OK on the outside. Trust me, I’ve been there!

Life is not easy, especially this past year. There are so many demands on our time and energy, such as dealing with horrible bosses, people cutting you off on the road, automated systems, and forgotten passwords, let alone relationship problems, the impact of past traumas, and mental health issues! It is enough to make anyone feel overwhelmed.

You need someone to talk to, but you don’t want to always turn to your partner or family, or perhaps you haven’t found someone you can reply on for support. Living with these feelings is difficult, and at times it feels impossible to bear. Or perhaps you are looking to make improvements in your life but are not sure how to go about it. Maybe you have heard of mindfulness or self improvements programs. You just need that extra accountability to help lead you in the right direction.

The good news is, asking for help gets easier with a little practice. The way in which we cope in the world is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Asking for help, and obtaining a fresh perspective is often the first and most profound step toward developing the mental muscle needed to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve more successes.

I look forward to helping you make the first step toward your well-being.

Onward Leading

Onward Leading is about meeting the moment in a way that releases the hold we have on needing control ourselves, those around us, the world in general. When we do this, we make a natural progression forward without having to force. Getting in touch with our deepest values and intentions, we develop a compass towards well -being.

I hope to have the chance to help you figure out the root causes of you stress or suffering, and to work together to learn how to navigate through it. We can’t always change the outside but we can work with whats going on inside. I promise to listen, to be fair and open-minded, to not judge, to call you out when needed, and to be kind and compassionate. I’m here to support you, share in joys and sorrows, be there when things get messy, and help you gain perspective.

As an experienced licensed clinical social worker, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and move toward a healthy, fulfilling life. Utilizing a variety of approaches including Cognitive/Cognitive-Behavioral, Compassion Focus Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, I will work with you to create a treatment plan that is customized to meet your unique circumstances.

With honesty and compassion, I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion, which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times in the future, as well as become a more productive and happier person.
