Dealing with depression, anxiety and relationship issues? I am a licensed therapist working with clients to support their exploration of feelings, trust issues and communications. Depression and anxiety are a problem when you feel it interfering with your enjoyment of life, and your want to connect with others. Sometimes people feel the need to just pull away because they feel restless, nervous, worried, too tense, too shameful. Whatever your pain, psychotherapy works to assist you to a new way of experiencing you and walk out of your pain.
I enjoy working with many varied issues including anxiety, interpersonal relationships, loss and depression.
For over 30 years I have helped people to experience a greater sense of themselves.
YOU and OTHERS
Others will treat us like we treat ourselves, or as well as we let them.
IT has been said that “we betray ourselves by the friends we choose.” Our choices directly influenced by our self-esteem.
Even when they start out treating us differently, our pattern of responses soon teaches them what kind of treatment we
expect. Showing little reaction to compliments and praise, but a strong reaction to criticism, indicates clearly that we are
more interested in criticism than praise and encourages others to respond accordingly.
By the time we are grown, we are so accustomed to thinking and communicating to ourselves in certain ways that we don’t
recognize how harshly we treat ourselves. We have forgotten that self-criticism and negative thinking are learned behaviors..
and can be changed.
Therapy can help you learn to recognize destructive and negative self-talk and replace it with words and thoughts of
encouragement, self-praise and nurturance. In therapy, you find ways to change destructive patterns of thinking and behaving
and grow to increase your opinion of yourself.
Then as you change, others will follow the cues you send out and start to treat you with greater consideration and respect…
just as you are doing with yourself.
Life events such as loss, divorce and breakups damage the strongest self-esteem..and cause us to question our worth.
Therapy eases this process with self-examination and support, enhancing your sense of self, a positive well-being and
a zest for life.
