Life is complicated and often, it may take time to realize that we need to seek help with issues we're facing. We’ve been going through the motions, but something isn’t working. I can work along-side you to develop healthy coping and stress management skills to manage what life has handed you. Specifically, I work with:
Abuse and Trauma
Grief and Loss
Career Issues: assertiveness, stress management, purpose, calling, etc.
Depression and anxiety
Co-dependency and Boundaries
Dating and relationship problems
Couples commonly go through the same cycle of conflict, over-and-over. The pattern almost becomes addictive. Even in a committed relationship, you can feel alone if you’re not on the same page. In therapy, I provide a safe environment for each person to be heard and understood. I believe every issue is important. I’ll work with both of you on improving your individual communication patterns to better serve your partner, and in turn, the relationship. I have a variety of tools to prevent the life-draining cycles and to help you get your relationship back on track. Here are common themes I work with:
Working through infidelity
Co-dependency and Boundaries
Differences in Culture, Values, Spirituality, Gender roles, Personality, etc.
Every family is distinct and unique in how they function and coexist. Sometimes when those issues arise, therapy isn’t the easiest choice, but it’s the healthiest. Families go through all sorts of transition periods, which create anxiety. That’s normal. However, you may need some extra guidance. I can help your family navigate issues to decrease the stress in the household. Here are some common issues that families face that I work with:
Mixed cultures and values
Non-normal and blended family structures
Inability to connect or effectively communicate with children
New schools, teenage issues, going to college, etc.
Divorce and loss in family
Trauma and abuse
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung
I had considered myself highly self-aware, especially when it came to my identity. Then I began working with schemas on a personal level. I had no idea the grip that unseen narratives were having on my professional life, friendships, and relationships. In making the unconscious conscious, I also realized I had way more power than I thought.
I’ve always had a gift of seeing people’s truest selves and potential. However, there are roadblocks that keep us from being who we were created to be. I’m sure you’ve felt that before—that no matter what you do or how hard you try, you keep running into the same issues. If so, your unconscious might be directing your life. Schema therapy provides a robust framework for discerning and healing specific roadblocks that keep you from your best self. It helps you get unstuck.
My greatest joy is working with and witnessing my clients experience full freedom in their true identities. In the therapy room, you will always be seen and heard. It’d be an honor to work together.
Feel free to contact me for a complimentary 10-15 minute consultation. We can see if we’d be a good fit.
