My Specialties

Below are the areas of mental health counseling where I specialize.

ANXIETY

Struggling with anxiety can be a challenging and overwhelming experience. It often manifests as persistent worry, restlessness, and a sense of unease. Individuals may find themselves constantly on edge, experiencing racing thoughts, and physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat or difficulty breathing. Anxiety can impact various aspects of their lives, including work, relationships, and daily activities. It may lead to avoidance behaviors or social withdrawal as individuals try to manage their anxious feelings. However, with counseling support, individuals can learn effective coping strategies, develop a greater understanding of their triggers and thought patterns, and gain tools to manage anxiety, ultimately reclaiming a sense of calm, control, and improved overall well-being.

DEPRESSION

Individuals struggling with depression often experience a profound sense of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities they once enjoyed. It can affect your energy levels, sleep patterns, appetite, and overall motivation. Concentration and decision-making may become challenging, and negative thoughts can become pervasive. Daily tasks may feel overwhelming, and individuals may withdraw from social interactions. Depression can profoundly impact your self-esteem and quality of life. Through counseling, individuals can gain support in exploring the underlying causes of their depression, developing coping strategies, and fostering a more positive mindset. By working together, individuals can discover new perspectives, cultivate self-compassion, and build a foundation for healing, resilience, and renewed hope.

ADHD

Individuals struggling with ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) may experience difficulties with attention, impulse control, and hyperactivity. They may find it challenging to sustain focus on tasks, often becoming easily distracted and forgetful. Time management and organization can pose significant challenges, leading to a sense of overwhelm and frustration. Impulsivity may manifest as acting without considering consequences, interrupting others, or engaging in impulsive decision-making. Hyperactivity can manifest as restlessness and a constant need for movement. These symptoms can impact various areas of life, including academics, work, relationships, and self-esteem. However, with counseling, individuals can learn effective strategies to manage their symptoms, develop organizational skills, improve time management, and enhance their self-awareness. By gaining a better understanding of their unique strengths and challenges, individuals can thrive and achieve their goals while embracing their unique gifts associated with ADHD.

ADJUSTMENT DISORDERS

Individuals struggling with adjustment disorders may experience significant emotional distress and difficulty coping with life transitions or stressful events. They may find it challenging to adapt to changes such as moving to a new location, starting a new job, experiencing relationship changes, or facing a traumatic event. Common symptoms include feelings of sadness, anxiety, irritability, and a sense of being overwhelmed. Sleep disturbances, changes in appetite, and difficulty concentrating are also common. The individual may struggle to regain a sense of balance and stability, leading to a decrease in overall functioning and well-being. Through counseling, individuals can receive support in navigating these adjustments, developing healthy coping mechanisms, and building resilience. By exploring their emotions, thoughts, and developing effective strategies, individuals can regain a sense of control, find meaning in their experiences, and move towards a place of greater emotional well-being.

GRIEF / LOSS

Grief encompasses a spectrum of emotions and experiences, ranging from profound sadness and feelings of emptiness to physical sensations like fatigue and changes in appetite. It is a deeply personal journey, and acknowledging the diversity of symptoms is crucial. If you find yourself grappling with grief, you're not alone. I specialize in creating a secure and therapeutic environment where individuals can delve into the layers of their grief, understanding and processing their emotions at their own pace. Whether it's the weight of sorrow or the complexity of conflicting emotions, we will navigate this journey together. My goal is to provide empathetic support, helping you find resilience and healing as you traverse the intricate path of grief.
