Perhaps you have been dealing with symptoms of anxiety and depression for quite some time. Maybe you’re not even sure what to call it, you just know you don’t feel good. And maybe you’ve been working hard to feel better on your own, but with little progress. Maybe you think you shouldn’t be feeling like this and have been too embarrassed to talk to anyone about it. Or you’re waiting for the feelings to pass, and before you know it, months and even years have gone by and you’re still struggling to feel good.
If your mood is affecting your relationships, your work performance, or simply your ability to experience life as pleasurable, it’s time to get some help. You don’t need to continue to suffer. Together we can figure out what’s going on and come up with a plan for change, to help you move forward toward a more joyful and satisfying life.
For many people, the first step toward change is to feel understood and accepted; to have a safe place to explore feelings and needs. I can provide you with that kind of support. Together we will make sense of your feelings and behaviors, and help you figure out what you need to feel better.
If any of these symptoms describe how you’ve been feeling, I would suggest you give individual therapy a try:
Lack of energy
Lack of motivation
Lack of passion/interest in anything
Lack of interest in things you used to enjoy
Sleep issues – sleeping too much or too little
Thoughts of suicide
Feeling sad much of the time
Feeling lost/without a sense of purpose
Having trouble focusing or concentrating
Feeling worried all the time or much of the time
Feeling stressed and overwhelmed
Having trouble making relationships work
Feeling unsure about a current love relationship
Feeling lonely/disconnected from others
Using substances or activities to numb out
This is not a complete list. There are many reasons why people seek individual therapy. Feel free to contact me and we can talk about what’s going on with you and assess whether I might be able to help.
