Chronic illness tends to call for lifestyle changes, which can leave you feeling angry, resentful, or anxious.
After being diagnosed with a chronic illness, you may experience feelings of fear, confusion and loss. My approach is to help navigate through those feelings as well as help you structure your best and most balanced life with your health needs in mind.
Anxiety is the most common psychological issue in the U.S. It is highly manageable, if not treatable, with the right support and tools. Some symptoms include excessive worry, difficulty concentrating, heart racing, and shortness of breath.
My approach when managing anxiety is to take small steps to lead to big changes. We will work to interrupt negative thought patterns, manage physical symptoms through a variety of techniques, and discuss the underlying root of the anxiety.
Life Transitions for Teens and Young Adults
Changes come at you in full speed at this time of your life. What do you want to do as a career? Do you want to pursue higher education? Are you ready to be in a relationship? Are you in the RIGHT relationship? Is your social circle helping or hurting you? These are all common questions that can be tackled in our sessions.
We will work to discover and understand your life goals and make strides towards reaching them by using solution focused and forward thinking strategies.
Romantic relationship issues can occur at all ages and during all stages of life. Sometimes, a couple needs a little bit of help to work through issues surrounding communication, boundaries, infidelity, open relationships, etc.
At other points, an individual may need to seek help outside of a relationship to process attachment issues, trauma from previous relationships, fear of committing, to name a few.
When working with relationship issues, we tend to learn the pattens of your romantic relationships (past and present) and understand what is healthy in the relationship and what is not. With this information at hand, we work to tackle major relationship issues through a step by step process.
Men’s issues tend to be overlooked by the media. It seems we have a harder time giving men the space to be emotional, to be sad, to cry, to be anxious… I have extensive experience working with men, particularly in their 20s regarding issues surrounding emotionality (and accepting it!), feeling whole and comfortable with their identities, and dating.
We will work step by step to see how you’d like to define who you are as opposed to how social media and our society has defined you, to help you live your best and most fulfilled life.
