Wondering if you could benefit from therapy? Ask yourself the follow questions:
Most of our lives are lived at work. If things aren’t going well there, it can color the rest of your life. I can help you to navigate work relationships, decide when to leave and when to stay, and find a work/life balance. I can also help if you find empowerment and self-regard if you have been bullied, sexually harassed or discriminated against.
How’s Your Money?
Under-earning or over-spending? Maybe you are doing OK, but still worry about what might happen next. Do you feel bad even talking about money? Unearth the negative stories you are carrying about money and turn them around. Make money your friend; something that supports and nurtures you in the life that you love.
Any Lingering Trauma That Just Won’t Let you Be?
Childhood abuse, rape, domestic violence, an accident, robbery, man-made or natural disaster can leave you with a nervous system that becomes habituated to stress hormones. This can feed negative thinking and a disconnection from the things that used to bring you joy. Don’t settle for a life of mere survival. You can recover from trauma and thrive again.
Any Big Changes Happening?
Both wanted and unwanted transitions are stressful. Maybe you’ve moved or changed jobs. Maybe you have a new child or your children have left the nest. Maybe you have a new relationship or have ended an old one. Maybe you have experienced a significant loss or tragedy. Transitions are dislocating, but they also provide enormous opportunities.
How’s Your Health? Your Family’s Health?
Acute or chronic illness takes on toll on your self-esteem and your relationships over time. It can impose dramatic lifestyle changes that leave you feeling isolated and out of sorts. So can caring for an ill or disabled family member. Reconnect to a sense of agency and a purpose beyond getting through the day.
