Individual Counseling

I know you are exhausted.  When you have to choose between taking care of yourself and taking care of everyone else, between sleep and getting it all done, you spend all of your energy taking care of the things you “should” do, but that’s never enough.

I also know that it can be different.  You don’t have to feel guilt, dread, and doubt everyday.  Individual counseling is a commitment to yourself that things are going to be different– that you can have peace and are willing to build the life that you’ve always wanted, even when you can’t even imagine that life any more.  Can you remember when life didn’t feel this hard?  Many of my clients couldn’t when they first came in, either.

Sometimes my clients even have physical symptoms:  Can’t sleep?  Can’t eat?  Can’t stop eating??? Headaches and backaches.  When we have carried these heavy thoughts and feelings around for too long, they start to weigh on us.  My hope is that you will let me help you carry some of that burden, and that you can put your needs back on your to-do list.

Reasons that people seek individual counseling with me:

  • Anxiety and Stress

  • Depressed mood

  • Problems in their relationships

  • Excessive worry and dread

  • Feelings of guilt and shame

  • Problems in their family-of-origin

  • Low self-esteem and self-worth

  • Lacking joy and fulfillment
