Part of what’s hard about personal challenges is the pressure to act like everything’s fine. It’s exhausting to wear a mask all the time that covers up how you really feel. Individual therapy offers a place for you to take off the mask, express yourself, and relieve the weight of whatever you’re carrying. Simply giving yourself this type of a break can begin to create positive changes in your life.
While struggle is a universal experience, people name their struggles in diverse ways. I provide support to people who are coping with:
- parenting challenges
- relationship difficulties
- transition and change (related to jobs, relationships, mid-life, aging, children leaving home, the transition to college, etc.)
I also help people who are feeling:
As busy lives and multiple commitments often challenge people’s ability to feel balanced and happy, I also enjoy working with people who:
- struggle with self-care
- feel stretched-thin by multiple roles
- live with unique parenting challenges
- want to start taking better care of themselves
I believe that feelings are messengers that can offer direction and clarity and that personal challenges present valuable opportunities for growth.
