Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience. I have worked extensively with mood and anxiety symptoms. Through therapy, we can understand what is contributing to these symptoms and create a plan to get relief and make things better. Grief can be so gripping that we can begin to only exist and can even lose our ability to function. With therapy, we can work together to process losses and re-engage with life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Sometimes we are left with anxiety, fear, hopelessness, even hypervigilance after a traumatic occurrence. One of my areas of expertise is helping individuals who have experienced traumatic events recover and get back to living full lives.
I specialize in working with kids and families. There are a multitude of issues that can effect the health and harmony of today's families, including a mental health diagnosis, developmental disorders, learning disabilities, family conflict, coping skills, losses, changes or even college preparedness. Together we can reduce or eliminate symptoms, explore strategies to reduce conflict and improve overall dynamics at home for both kids and their families.
