Do you feel disconnected or frustrated, but not sure why?
Do you know that you are successful, but still feel unfulfilled?
Ever wonder: "Is this all there is?"
Often feel as if you are just spinning your wheels, but never getting anywhere?
Do you want to improve a relationship in your life with a spouse, child, parent, or employer?
Find the right balance in your life...
Through therapy, you will discover new truths about yourself and what will help you to feel more effective and fulfilled. I specialize in helping people to increase their contentedness in life and manage relationships which have caused a problem in their lives. While friends can give advice, I provide objective, non-judgemental guidance, with deep listening and caring. I will take you and your problems seriously, while helping you discover real solutions to manage the problems and to find more joy and meaning in your life. Life is about more than surviving... it is about striving and thriving as well!
You are not alone!
Life today is fast-paced and stressful. I can assure you, there are many others out there who feel out of touch and disconnected in their relationships and with themselves. You can feel more grounded in your daily life. You can learn to communicate more effectively with the important people in your life. You can begin to stop blaming yourself for every problem that happens. You can stop taking on too much and then feeling overwhelmed.
"How can you really help me?" Great question! You may be new to therapy and skeptical of whether it will help. This is a perfectly healthy thought - it means you think for yourself, and don't want to be bothered by something that is not useful. My promise to you is that early on in the therapy (during the first few sessions), we will evaluate whether you feel it is helpful. You wil have a chance to discuss your thoughts and give me feedback.
"I've tried therapy before and it didn't help." There could be a lot of reasons for this. Perhaps it wasn't the right time in your life for therapy. Some people need to be in a certain place mentally or emotionally before therapy can truly help. Another possibility is that the fit between you and the therapist wasn't quite right. Research has shown that the right fit between therapist and client is key to the effectiveness of the therapy process. My approach will be different in the way I listen to you. I won't jump in and take over, giving you one-size-fits-all advice that won't work for you. Nor will I simply sit impassively, letting you talk the entire session but offering little feedback. Instead, you and I will collaborate and find the individual answers and solutions that will be most effective for you. I honor the uniqueness of each client and I find that that approach really works!
"I feel nervous about telling a total stranger about my problems." I find that being anxious about starting is one of the most frequent comments I hear from new clients. They are afraid of feeling vulnerable by exposing their internal thoughts and emotions, or that I might be judgmental, think they are "crazy" or their problems are too big to be fixed. I let them know I understand their worries, and that alone helps them to feel more "normal." Typically, though, they quickly feel comfortable when they feel the relief of being able to tell their story and to truly be heard.
How do I get started? You can start by calling me at 404-201-2048 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will ask a few questions and then we will set an appointment to meet in my office. I will email some forms for you to fill out and bring with you. Remember, it is normal to feel a bit anxious or apprehensive when making the first call and starting therapy!
