Individuals

Depression and Anxiety

 

Depression and anxiety are first cousins and can rob a person of his/her joy and abundance of life, limiting one's worldly experiences. Life can seem discolored when there is hopelessness from depression and distraction of the present from anxiety. I strive to help you find your optimal functioning to see all of the beautiful colors of life's journey. 

Trauma and PTSD

 

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 
 

Making and Breaking Relationships

 Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both partners and are a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen their relationship. Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT) is used to help couples change problematic emotional states and help create an interpersonal interaction whereby partners are able to ask for and provide comfort and safety in their marriage or partnership. Reshaping the attachment bond is a major focus.      

Adoption

I work with individuals and families who are struggling with adoption issues. Adoption may include the adoption of a child through a public agency, private agency, international means or even an embryonic adoption. All ways will require evaluation of your life, patience, and be life-changing. I am here to walk through this process with you every step of the way.
