Counseling Services

You’re here because you know something needs to change, and therapy can help. If your struggles have become overwhelming, and it feels like too much to manage on your own, it’s time to ask for support.

What is Counseling?

Maybe you’re feeling unsure about getting started or you’re wondering if therapy will be a good fit.  Therapy might be right for you if:
You’re feeling overwhelmed, burned out, or stressed. Whether it’s your relationship, your family, or your job, life can seem pretty overwhelming. While some stress is inevitable, too much stress and pressure can lead to anxiety, frustration, and self-doubt. If you find yourself thinking, “I can’t do this anymore,” it’s time to ask for help.

You feel like you’ve lost control. Everyone experiences difficult emotions, but sometimes these emotions seem too big to handle.  If you find yelling at your kids, crying at work, or just so anxious you can’t focus, your thoughts and feelings might be too intense to manage on your own. When your thoughts and feelings spiral out of control, you need to reach out for support.

You’re having a hard time taking care of yourself. Maybe you’re not sleeping well or taking care of your body. Perhaps you’ve been ignoring your health or turning to alcohol or drugs to cope. Therapy can address the core issues at the root of these problems and help you feel better.

You can’t stop thinking about the past or worrying about the future. It’s normal to think about the past from time to time or to find yourself worrying about the future. But, when these thoughts start to take over your life, you might need some help moving forward.

You’re having a hard time finding your joy. If you’re having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, struggling to find the motivation to get things done, or you’ve simply lost interest in the things that used to bring you joy, it’s time to ask for help.

You just feel like you need someone to talk to. You don’t have to wait until the world is crashing down around you to feel better. Reach out today.

If you think therapy might be a good fit, let’s talk.
