Working with Individuals

 

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.”

Ernest Hemingway

 

From time to time, we can feel overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed, or we’re just not happy with the way things are going in our lives, work or relationships.

Sometimes we need to talk to someone who is not a friend and not family, but someone who we feel comfortable with and who can help us get unstuck, tune into what feels true to ourselves, and live life more fully.  That’s where therapy comes into play.

I work with people with:

  •    Anxiety
  •    Depression
  •    Relationship difficulties
  •    Anger issues

 

Together, we can create a supportive and safe place to address your concerns and ways of being in this world that are distressing to you. In our work together, I help you discover your strengths and ability to be compassionate with your self and others, confident, and accepting, as well as helping you do more of what you’d like to do in your life.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an effective model and guides my work.  Some of the things I like about IFS is it is curious about and fosters a good internal relationship with different parts of ourselves.  IFS also focuses on the strengths we have within us,  no matter what we’ve been through.

I also draw on the the idea of self-compassion.  If you’re interested to find out how self-compassionate you are, you can take this test by Kristen Neff of Self-Compassion.org here: Self Compassion Test (Test copyrighted by Kristin Neff Associate Professor of Human Development and Culture, Educational Psychology Department, University of Texas at Austin.)

Get in touch.

I'm always happy to hear from people.
