Counseling Services

Take a look at a few common presenting concerns and contact me if you'd like to discuss how I can help.

Anxiety

While this concern can present itself in many ways (constant worry, panic, avoiding social situations, etc.), it often makes people feel helpless and exhausted. Maybe you’ve tried everything you can think of to help relax, but the anxious thoughts keep coming back and won’t leave you alone. This can certainly be frustrating to the point of feeling stuck. To get you unstuck, together we can sift through some of those thoughts and figure out where they came from and how to change them. We may also explore concrete techniques to help you find more peace and create a sustainable lifestyle.

Depression

If you’ve been feeling down to the point of not being able to enjoy every day life, you may need some extra support. I’ve enjoyed helping many folks over the years recognize those self-critical messages that perpetuate feeling sad, irritable, and lonely and then practice challenging them to create a new perspective. Additionally, I can pull from a variety of techniques to help you find more meaning and direction.

Co-Dependency

Do you consistently find yourself spending much more time worrying about how other people feel than how you feel? Individuals who struggle with co-dependency have difficulty asserting their own needs out of fears of being selfish or making others upset. I can work with you to find a healthy balance between caring for others while learning how to pay attention to your own needs. Our first session could be your first step in taking ownership of what’s important to you.

Men's Issues

If you’re noticing the stress from your job, friends, or family is starting to really bother you, counseling may be useful. Perhaps working hard to provide and get ahead used to be fulfilling but now it's less satisfying. I enjoy helping other men figure out what they want out of life, redefine what it means to be a man, better understand romantic relationships, and enhance communication skills.

Phase of Life Transitions

It’s fairly common to experience some stress when going through a life change. This could be going off to college, graduating, marriage, divorce, or retirement. Many times, we can’t totally control what life presents to us, but we can learn to adjust to it. I can help people sort through some of the confusion around these changes and eventually move from being concerned about the future to embracing it.
