Anxiety may be impairing your ability to socialize, work or create the home life you desire. If you're struggling with anxiety in your daily life, I will work with you to create a personalized program using methods that may include: identifying unhelpful thinking styles, exploring behaviors that increase anxiety and helping you gradually become accustomed to situations that cause anxiety through imagining or experiencing them.
Some of my fondest therapy moments are from working at an organization that specializes in working with LGBTQ+ folks. While working there I had the pleasure of connecting with clients from all walks of life around their identity. This experience coupled with their on-site training has given me the opportunity to work with a variety of gender identities and sexualities. Some challenges I have worked with clients to overcome include: the coming-out process, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, workplace issues, and discrimination.
INCREASING PERSONAL MEANING:
One of my favorite parts of being a therapist is helping clients foster a life that is additionally meaningful. Part of this process includes identifying past and current sources of meaning in order to fully realize known opportunities for meaningfulness. In addition, I aid clients in identifying their ‘meaning making style’ which helps open up new relevant avenues, activities and rituals that increase a sense of personal meaning. Lastly, there is a focus on identifying and reducing patterns, actions and activities that lead to experiences that are less meaningful.
Whether it be coping with a breakup, divorce, job loss or adjusting to college life, transitions are universally challenging! I love helping individuals who are adjusting to new circumstances or going through life changes. I'm here to support you, assist you with self-care, and I will walk with you as you work through the fear and discomfort.
Experiencing trauma can be an extraordinarily confronting experience - know that you are not alone. My style is gentle and patient, and I've received advanced training and an academic certificate in Cognitive Processing Therapy, which allows me to help you become more aware of the relationship between your thoughts and emotions as we begin to unpack your trauma at your own pace.
