When we feel anxious it's hard to enjoy the moment. We are constantly thinking and worrying about what's next and what can go wrong in our lives. We feel tense, tired, and stressed with everything - relationships, work, and our children. In working with anxiety, I help people develop a new sense of confidence in themselves so that they can handle the stressful areas of their lives. I help people understand themselves more deeply and know how to respond to situations so that they can experience more peace and connection.
Common areas addressed: Social anxiety, frequent worry and stress, generalized anxiety, career uncertainty, relationship stress, and OCD.
It can be hard to acknowledge and ask for help in the challenging areas of our lives, especially for men due to social expectations and pressures. It’s important for men when seeking counseling that they feel comfortable and that their therapist can relate and provide the real help they need. I work with many men struggling with often difficult or shameful areas and look to provide wholeness and restoration in these areas of their life.
Common issues addressed: Anger and anxiety, Co-Dependency, porn addiction, sex, guilt and shame, and relationship problems.
Sometimes it's hard to believe that your relationship can improve when you and your partner find yourselves in the same type of arguments and patterns, time and time again. It can feel extremely painful and hopeless at times. Couples counseling is geared towards providing wholeness and lasting change in the relationship. I work with couples in a focused approach to resolve differences and find new ways of connecting with each other.
Common areas addressed: Communication problems, marital distress and anger, trust issues, life transitions, infidelity, and physical intimacy issues.
