Do you think you may struggle with anxiety? Some symptoms of anxiety are:

  • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense

  • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread

  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation

  • Increased or heavy perspiring

  • Trembling or muscle twitching

  • Weakness or lethargy

  • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing that worries you

  • Insomnia

  • Obsessions about specific ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder

  • Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past is a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder

Regarding anxiety, research shows that psychotherapy can be an effective option. I will join you in psychotherapy to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears. Together, we can focus on learning to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and improve coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.

If you are struggling with anxiety, I invite you to contact me today.

Do you think you might be suffering from depression? You are not alone. Know that one out of every four people has depression.

Some common emotions signaling depression are:

  • Feeling hopeless

  • Feeling isolated and out of sorts

If you are depressed, the following thoughts might often enter your mind:

  • “I am worthless and can’t do a thing about it.”

  • “I feel guilty about it, but all I want to do is just eat, sleep and be alone.”

  • ”I hate who I am these days.”

  • “I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.”

  • “I feel gut-wrenching pain that no one understands.”

  • “My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.”

The good news is that there is help for depression. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that many options are available to regain hope.

I aim to help you sort out and address environmental, biological, and circumstantial factors of your depression that you can change while offering support and care through a very dark time. Please contact me today if you hope to lighten your load and feel better.
