Life Can Be Challenging

We all face challenges in life, especially in these hard times. Sometimes these challenges seem too overwhelming to face alone. We can become stuck or we tell ourselves that it is just too hard. These are the times when we all need some extra help.

Listening Caring Helping

I offer a Positive Psychology/Strength-based perspective which focuses on using your existing strengths to help implement change in your life. Our lives are filled with challenges such as anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, loneliness and grief that seem impossible to overcome alone. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to explore and express your emotions. Working together we can reveal your existing strengths and develop them into effective coping skills to overcome these challenges. I have personal experience, as a parent and a daughter, in dealing with the challenges of physical and mental disabilities. I have lived and worked in various regions of the United States and abroad, thus I understand the feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression, and uncertainty that can surface when in a new environment, situation, or even in every day circumstances. Reach out to me and we will tailor your therapy experience to you as an individual. Together we can help you cope with these obstacles to a healthier life.
