Psychotherapy can be helpful in understanding and shifting feelings and patterns in our lives. At times, we need someone who can help us find the sources of what is troubling us. Some of the issues that I’ve helped people work on include:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Eating Disorders
- Trauma and Post-traumatic Stress
- Grief and Bereavement
- Divorce and Co-Parenting
- Parenting with Children with Chronic Medical Conditions
- Relationship Struggles
How can we best guard each other’s hearts while continuing to grow on our own? How do we change together as we become parents, care for and lose loved ones or find out more about who we are? Our relationships are the clearest mirrors of all the tension between freedom and safety.
Couples therapy allows partners to understand each other more deeply, to air ghosts of the past that limit us, prevent current issues from becoming intractable patterns. At times, couples therapy provides a way to separate with kindness and respect.
Counseling for Teens
Teens face a complicated and fast-paced world at a time when they experience enormous changes internally and externally. The challenges and feelings that are constantly in motion during these formative years can be hard to navigate and often creates struggles with mood, school and behavior difficulties and struggles with self-image. Having a private place outside of home and school to talk through these concerns and changes can make all the difference in young adulthood.
Challenges in Adolescence that I work with include:
- Friendships and Romantic Relationships
- Mood Difficulties , feelings of anger, loneliness and
- Body Issues and Disordered Eating
- Sexual Identity
