Anxiety robs us of joy and can lead to strain in our most important relationships, such as with our spouse, family members and friends. In addition, anxiety and stress (and related perfectionism) can lead to burnout, impulsive decision making and a feeling that we cannot regroup or find our way out of the woods. I work with clients to sort through the mind clutter where anxiety lives and feeds. Together you and I talk in a purposeful way, without fear of judgment, loaded expectations or demands. Decision making becomes easier, values become more clear, boundaries begin to develop , relationships begin to heal and living becomes more peaceful.
Counseling for Depression
We experience emotional struggles and sometimes find ourselves in dark places. Those periods of time when you feel less motivated to complete tasks, have little energy to socialize the way you once did... never mind go to work, care for loved ones, etc. It can be difficult to find the energy you need each day when you are weighted down with negative thoughts or self-talk, feelings of sadness or sometimes feeling hopeless that things can be better. Your relationship with your spouse, children and other family members can suffer and you may come to a place where you might not even recognize yourself anymore. You are meant for so much more, to live fully and feel connected with those most important people in your life.
