Are you feeling anxious or stressed out? There are techniques I can teach you so you feel calmer in a short amount of time. Once you learn coping and calming techniques (many of which are mindfulness-based), you can approach life in a more relaxed way and think more clearly.
Is it hard for you to feel hopeful about the future? Do you feel like this mood is going to last forever? I can help you find ways to understand that this mood is temporary and you can make changes that help you have a more positive perspective.
Are you going through a big change? Going through a life transition like a loved one passing away (a person or pet), becoming an empty nester, relationships ending, having a baby, losing a job, or moving to a new city can often result in a huge period of adjustment. I can help you see this transition from a different perspective and help you cope with the big change (which sometimes involves the grief process).
Are you a deep thinker and tend to feel overwhelmed? Do you feel emotions intensely and have sensory reactions to things (like loud sounds, scratchy tags on clothes)? I can help you learn to appreciate the way you are wired and assist in developing self-care techniques.
Do you or a family member have a chronic disease like Type 1 Diabetes, cancer, dementia, or heart disease? Are you taking care of a loved one? I can help you adapt to your new diagnosis or your loved one's condition. I can help you learn to manage the stress of being a caregiver.
You will be in charge of the goals you set for counseling. What do you want your relationships to look like? How do you want to change them and what relationships would you like to add to your life? What would you like to do less of? What would you like to do more of? What is getting in the way of you enjoying your life? Together we can work toward you achieving a calm and content life!
