Individual Counseling

Everyone feels sad at times. The loss of a job, the loss of a loved one, major health issues, and divorce or stress in a marriage can be the triggers for sadness. When the sadness continues for at least two weeks and blocks normal life activities such as work, eating, and sleeping, it is called depression. Frequently, you don’t want to socialize and feel yourself withdrawing from most activities. When you start feeling helpless, hopeless, and guilty, it is time to get help.

Panicky, feel your chest tightening up, unable to get a full breath, feel that you want to run but have nowhere to go-you are having the symptoms of a panic attack. When the anxiety interferes with getting a good night’s sleep, when you can’t eat or eat too much, you are having anxiety. Sometimes, you may not want to leave the house, feel overwhelmed by the smallest stress. It is time to get help.

When your relationship has reached the breaking point, it can trigger depression and anxiety. When you feel alone, disconnected, unable to communicate, it is time to get help. A trained, certified counselor can help you leave the depression, anxiety and relationship issues behind.

I’d like to help you reach the place where you can handle each day with a smile, feeling that you can cope with anything life dishes out. And you can.
