Therapist and Marriage Counselor for Healing and Growth
We all know what it is like to feel nervous when we have to give a speech, attend a job interview, or ask someone out on a date. We also know that it’s to be expected to feel fear and anxiety when faced with a traumatic situation or impending danger. If you happen to be in a bank when it is being held up or you are awaiting news on blood tests to rule out cancer, you will surely feel anxiety and fear. Most of us can manage these momentary crisis situations and restore our emotional balance after the incident has passed. We don’t remain plagued by our anxiety. However, millions of people experience panic, phobias, depression and overwhelming anxiety that disrupt their everyday functioning. These symptoms interfere with their ability to perform at work, make friends, establish intimate relationships, travel for a vacation and engage in athletic or recreational activities. Some individuals are literally locked up in their homes, perceiving their homes as their only safe haven. Are you plagued by constant worry and anxiety and paralyzed by inaction? Then maybe seeing a therapist or marriage counselor is for you.
As a therapist providing individual therapy and marriage counseling, my goal is to provide you with the tools to significantly reduce anxiety, guilt, anger and depression. How can seeing a therapist help you gain greater control of your emotions, communication and behavior? An experienced therapist will teach you strategies to distinguish between realistic thoughts and irrational ones. Additionally, a skilled marriage counselor will help you strengthen your primary support system so that you will be able to manage stress better. The therapeutic process working with a therapist entails learning and applying self-affirmations to remain calm and composed when confronting stressful interactions or situations.
Wouldn't you love to live life in the here-and-now? Wouldn't you love to be free of all the fears, self-criticism, and worry that plagues your mind on a constant basis? Your therapist will impart the skills you need to become a more tolerant individual, accepting of yourself and others. Love emanates from people who are truly present and attuned. Your therapist will be your guide on a wonderful journey of self-awareness and self-actualization. Your therapist will help you harnesses your true inner strength and assist you in overcoming any self-imposed barriers to productive work and loving relationships.
