Depression is one of the most common issues that people may experience at some point in their lives. Through telehealth counseling, we will work to help you recover your motivation and productivity, improve sleep and appetite, feel better about yourself, and most importantly, work to find joy and meaning in your life.
You may find yourself constantly worried, fearful, panicky, or not able to sleep because your mind races, or maybe you are even afraid to leave your home. In counseling we will work to slow down and gain control of your thoughts, better understand and manage your fears, and help you feel more confident and comfortable in the world.
Problems in social, work, or love relationships can negatively impact so many areas of our lives. I work with you, with or without this other person present, to examine the problems in this relationship, develop communication styles that work more effectively, increase empathy for the other, or just better understand and accept the differences that are normal between two people.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful, intense, or traumatic past experiences. Anxiety, fear, depression, loneliness, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can continue to cause problems for us after traumatic events. I will teach you about the brain and trauma, which can help you understand what's happening and why your brain continues to torment you with reminders. We will then work to overcome these symptoms and move through the process of healing.
If you have had a relationship at some point in your life where you felt controlled, gaslighted, ridiculed, shamed, defined, or abused, then you know these events can change how you interact with the world, or how you think about yourself. We will work together to repair and strengthen your self-esteem, clarify your self-identify, set and hold healthy boundaries, be able to identify healthy vs unhealthy people and relationships, restore your ability to trust, and learn how to either avoid these relationships in the future, or with the relationships you cannot avoid, protect yourself better.
If you are currently seeking a relationship, but have too many love relationships in the past of the type you care not to repeat, we will work on learning what you learned about partners from your childhood, parents, or past relationships and how that affects you now, and learn how to trust again, what red flags are and how to deal with them, how to have healthy boundaries and honor others' boundaries, and what is healthy dating behavior.
