Psychotherapy is a valuable process of self-discovery and changing course when things no longer seem to be working. When the patterns and coping styles we develop earlier in life are no longer serving us or life experiences challenge our ability to effectively navigate the world, we often need a guide to help us get a different perspective and learn new skills.
Anxiety, depression, and chronic anger are just some of the signals that indicate something is out of alignment. Difficulty managing distressful emotions, burnout, chronic stress or worry, negative inner dialogue, communication and relationship problems, problematic conflict styles, unmet needs and desires, trauma related symptoms, and other difficulties may result in physical distress, illness, and disease. The mind and body operate together to create a sense of well-being or ill health.
Developing emotional intelligence personally and professionally, managing stress and anxiety, cultivating wisdom, moving from depression to finding your passion, and resolving loss, grief, and trauma can help reclaim your joy, transform unhealthy habits, improve relationships while having more time to focus on what’s meaningful and working towards your goals.
