Do you wake up feeling depressed dreading to get through another day where you are merely going through the motions? Do you try to fill the void in your life with sensation-seeking, risky or addictive behaviors: alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping, gambling, watching TV, video games, internet surfing, online gaming, chat rooms, etc.?
Have you lost touch with the aspirations and dreams that used to motivate and inspire you? Do you find yourself daydreaming about expressing yourself creatively or working at something where your individual talents come into play?
Are you anxious about judgmental rejection or perhaps even worry whether you lack imagination or "what it takes" to succeed in your chosen field? Have your troubles taken a toll on your social interactions and relationships?
If any of these questions speak to you, you are not alone! From time to time we all encounter situations where we can use the skill of a mental health professional. You do not have to feel miserable about yourself and the way your life is going. I can help!
Seeking therapy takes courage and the prospect of talking to a stranger can be intimidating. I relate to the discomfort you may experience and provide a confidential, non-judgmental, accepting and supportive space to work with you.
My approach is eclectic and tailored to your individual needs and goals. Using my extensive training and experience I listen carefully. With my professional insight I guide you to uncover and explore the meaning of long-avoided feelings and longings that underlie states of depression, anxiety, obsessions, compulsions, procrastination, self-sabotage, substance abuse or addictive behaviors. In a spirit of collaboration together we'll try to make sense of the inner logic that keeps you immobilized allowing you to find your way out of the impasse.
I am committed to help you reclaim your vision for yourself and to reconnect you to parts of yourself that have been frozen or submerged. In the process you might rediscover childlike wonderment, curiosity, spontaneity, creativity, passion and aliveness.
