Wellness isn’t just about living a healthier life – it’s also about living a life that is deeply satisfying, rich with meaning and purpose. Therapy can help you identify and establish positive goals, learn how to regulate your emotions, and make choices that support your health and quality of life. I can help.
HEALING FROM TRAUMA
When we experience an extraordinarily stressful event or situation that threatens life or safety or leaves us feeling overwhelmed and isolated, we may struggle to cope. The memory of this event or situation can stay with us, deep pain from the past that casts a dark shadow over the present. A traumatic event can be one that is directly life-threatening, but not always. The pain of isolation, abandonment, abuse or neglect, or a constant state of stress brought about by societal conditions can be traumatic as well. We cannot change the past, but we can heal from trauma – and therapy can be the catalyst for that healing.
Many people seek out a therapist to help them navigate a major life change or disruption, such as the death of a loved one, divorce or separation, a major health diagnosis, caring for an aging parent, adjusting to life as an empty nester, or rediscovering a sense of purpose after retirement. We may just need a little temporary support, such as dealing with seasonal depression. Even a happy event like planning a wedding can knock us off our center – and working with a therapist can help us cope with the added stress, so we can be fully present to the joy of the occasion.
MANAGING THE STRESS OF MODERN LIFE
We are barraged every day with news, information, pinging phone notifications, managing hectic schedules. Sometimes we feel like we’re managing just fine, but other times we might feel like we’re on an endless treadmill that’s set too high. Many people think, “these aren’t ‘big’ enough issues for therapy.” But it’s as important to prioritize mental wellness as it is physical wellness – and that means recognizing that you deserve to live a full, happy life.
I can help you learn to prioritize your own peace so that you have the energy to take care of yourself, help others, and be your best self. In that sense, therapy is a gift you give not only to yourself but to those you love most.
