Counseling For Millennials
Is there a disconnect between your potential and reality?
Are you constantly doubting yourself and talents?
Are you spending your days just going through the motion?
Do you feel like life keeps happening to you?
Are anxiety and depression interfering with your daily routine, causing you to isolate yourself or avoid situations? This can be debilitating and blocking you from living a more full life. During individual counseling, coping skills and new ways of thinking are developed to overcome anxiety and depression. Explore the fears that hold you back, the past that has overtaken your present, and dreams that seem unattainable. When working with individuals, I help you explore those very things and more.
During our work together we will:
- Identify areas in your life that are contrary to what you want
- Pinpoint habits, beliefs, and behaviors that are no longer serving you and replace them with new thoughts and behaviors
- Discover new ways to overcome challenges, rise to your potential, let go, and thrive
As a relationship therapist, I view communication problems and intimacy issues as a breakdown in connection between you and your partner. In our work together, we will focus on healing through reconnecting with your partner by creating new, shared meanings about the relationship. Typically, clients rely on old assumptions about how to make a relationship work. These separate and different perspectives often get in the way of being understanding and compassionate for your loved one. Ultimately, your ability to be understanding and compassionate for your partner will improve your ability to communicate more effectively.
My style of couples therapy honors different communication styles. We will explore both verbal and non-verbal methods of expressing what you feel and think to your partner. We will learn together which methods are most useful to you, so that you may walk away from each session knowing more about your partner than you did before. My hope is that improved communication will lead to more openness, which will inevitably lead to greater intimacy and a more satisfying relationship.
