Specializing in Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Anger, and Complex Mental Health
Anxiety is related to overwhelming physical sensations and fears of past and future events. Anxiety makes us avoid situations where we feel fear. No matter the type of anxiety you face, there are many different effective treatments.
Anger can start as a small issue but it can then start to cause problems in many areas of our life, such as with colleagues at work, in relationships and with our family. When anger becomes something you're feeling too often, you begin to miss out on the feelings you want, like peace and happiness.
Depression can feel overwhelming and hopeless at times. Even small tasks can seem too hard. You may no longer have fun doing the things you used to like. Or you may have no energy to do the things you need to do. Getting help from a professional can ease the pain you face alone.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
Mental health concerns can be a much struggle for youth as it is for adults. For example, youth can stop doing things they used to enjoy because of overwhelming fears or loss of interest. Often youth get caught in a habit of using electronics to cope and avoid life. This can lead to missing out on a number of important life experiences that are necessary for healthy development.
Trauma can happen at any stage of our life and can have long lasting impact. Sometimes it is expressed in ways we don't even realize, like anger. Processing trauma can be important for many reasons, especially if it continues to affect your day to day life.
Complex Mental Health Concerns
Mental health can be confusing. We don't always know what is going on, or feel like we don't fit into a specific category. Sometimes there are many things going on at once and it's hard to figure out what the main issue is. I have experience with many complex issues and can help figure out what treatment is best for you.
