Making use of psychotherapy in your life: What if you could start moving forward towards your goals? Imagine how your life could be.
You may find that no matter how well things are going in your life, you sometimes wonder what stops you from achieving more. Or instead, your life may be a series of painful stresses and tensions. And with this pain, you may find that there is limited, or no relief, from these stresses. Either way, psychotherapy can help you get unstuck.
Support yourself in moving towards a more fulfilling life with individual therapy.
Psychotherapy is also known as “therapy” or “counseling”, or “individual counseling”. It is a process that can help you express yourself more successfully in the world. And it can help you to enjoy life more fully. Sometimes, the stresses of the world can cause damage to our minds. This kind of emotional trauma can trigger experiences of anxiety, depression, confusion or lack of clarity. At other times this overloading of stress can be experienced as procrastination. Procrastinating means avoiding moving forward towards hopes, dreams and the tasks of daily life. Therapy can help you move forward — restoring your wholeness and increasing your enjoyment of life.
I have worked with individuals, couples and families for over 20 years. And, I have been working in private practice for many years. Though, I previously provided counseling services in a variety of mental health related agencies. And, I have been on staff at residential programs for adults, young adults, adolescents, and children. Previously, I directed a residential treatment program for severely disturbed adolescents called Bridges of Sonoma.
With a blend of wisdom, understanding, intuition and humor — we can work together to help you achieve your dreams and goals.
The Benefits of Individual Therapy
Doing therapy may result in
- a decrease of anxiety
- lifting of depression
- enhanced sense of well-being
- better relationships
- improved communication with others
- more awareness of self
- a sense of feeling more grounded and stable
In psychotherapy you will find a safe place to talk about things. These are the things that are the most important to you.
Would you like to feel calmer? And would you like to be experiencing more satisfaction in your life? In addition, would you like to have closer connections with your loved ones, friends and co-workers? Psychotherapy and other counseling services can be your gateway to a life with more happiness and balance. I am experienced at helping you understand and use your strengths. And this can be your foundation to help create the life you desire.
This isn’t a magical cure – walking this path of psychotherapy may take some time, energy and focus. Yet the rewards can be great. For some, the goals are more about resolving old hurts and trauma. For others, goals may be about improving relationship skills and communication skills. In all cases, my aim is to increase your ability to create the life you want.
