Individual Counseling

Are you unhappy, unsure of yourself, uncomfortable in your own skin? Do you want more joy, ease, and fulfillment? Are you where you want to be in life? Are you ready to make some changes?

Many people struggle negative feelings. We turn to food, escape into devices (e.g. – social media, Netflix), shopping, substances “to take the edge off”, etc. to avoid feeling what we’re feeling. Unfortunately, these methods can create more problems.

And most of our problems are relationship problems: problems with friends (do I have enough friends, are they meaningful friendships), problems with a significant other, problems because I don’t have a significant other, problems with a family member, problems with people at work, or problems with how I relate to myself (I’m not good enough, I don’t look good enough, I’m not smart enough, I’m not ….)

Counseling can help.

Through therapy you can gain a clearer understanding of who you are, the impact of life events, family, and culture on your life. And, thereby create a foundation for change, discover more choices available to you, and develop the strength, compassion, and courage to attain your goals.

Life is like a road trip. We might know where we want to go. But if we don’t know where we are, how do we know what route to take? Sometimes we get lost. Do we ask for directions or fly by the seat of our pants? (There is no “right” answer here.) Sometimes there’s bad weather or car trouble, so chances are, we are not going to arrive on time. And sometimes we decide to take a side trip or a more scenic route. Together, we can figure out where you are and how to get to where you want to be. This is YOUR journey.
