Anxious. Frustrated. Lost. Overwhelmed. These are some emotions that you might be feeling right now. You want to feel better. You want to figure it out. You are ready for change!
Take a deep breath and know that this realization is the first step towards healing. It takes courage to stop running from your problems, suffering quietly, and pretending like everything is okay. It takes strength and self-awareness to put an end to hiding, avoiding, and repressing what you really feel.
Whether you are having relationship difficulties with your significant other, you are experiencing family conflict or going through a major life transition, my goal as your counselor is to help! Together we will find ways to disentangle and bring clarity to your situation, process any unresolved emotions, build tolerance and develop coping skills to ease the pain, and ultimately help uncover the answers that you harbor within yourself.
When I work with clients, I like to take into account their culture and the broader community. I also am curious about how they manage difficult emotions. The stories that we tell ourselves are powerful, and I invite you to begin counseling so we can collaborate on uncovering what actions to take for enduring, positive change.
