Anxiety often feels like an impending sense of doom. It can affect your ability to function, and can often be very isolating. I work with individuals to reduce anxiety through mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Trauma can be a result of one event or multiple events over time. Symptoms may include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, dissociation, and low self-esteem. I work with individuals using the "bottom up" approach. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist-Individual.
Codependency is characterized by individuals that have unbalanced relationships, and the individual will put the needs of others before themselves.

Change comes from a fear of the unknown or an expectation of loss. Depending on how you view the change, good or bad, may determine how well you adjust. Therapy can help with changing perception, increase quality coping skills, and provide the support needed to successfully adjust to change.
In every relationship there are times when it is helpful to have a professional as a sounding board. Couples therapy you can learn about “blind spots.” Blind spots are things you do that you are not aware of, but others can see. For example, unhealthy communication patterns and conflict avoidance. The goal of therapy is to increase awareness and tools to increase satisfaction in the relationship.
There are many benefits to getting therapy in a group setting. Groups represent a small population of people with different backgrounds, but similar struggles. Growth tends to happen quickly in groups because of the support and feedback that are provided. Groups can also be an affordable way to get therapy.

A friend or family member is not professionally trained to help you grow, heal and change. Here is why your friend's advice is different from a therapist. Friends usually give you advice based on their experience, and are sometimes they are too close to the situation to be non-bias. Sometimes people don't feel comfortable sharing everything with a friend or family member because they fear being judged. A trained therapist is interested in helping you find your own answers by helping you connect with what is true and right for you.
