Approximately 1 in 5 adults experiences a mental health issue in any given year. The most common mental health issues facing adults are related to adjustment, anxiety and depression. Everyone’s path looks a little bit different, but the emotions we experience are universal. No matter what has brought you to this place in your life, if you are not fulfilled, if you are struggling most days to live your best life, it might be time to talk to someone. Many adults turn to loved ones and friends for advice, and some feel isolated and alone, but no matter your situation, if you need a safe confidential space to rediscover your strengths and tackle what’s holding you back, give me a call. I work with the individual to tailor services toward your personal goals which may be short term or long term in nature. Although the terms counseling and therapy are often used interchangeably, there is a difference between psychotherapy and psychological counseling. Counseling focuses on specific issues and is designed to help a person address a particular problem. The focus may be on problem solving or on learning specific techniques for coping with or avoiding problem areas. Counseling is also usually more short-term than therapy. Psychotherapy is more long-term than counseling and focuses on a broader range of issues. The underlying principle is that a person’s patterns of thinking and unconscious awareness affect the way that person interacts with the world. The goal is to uncover those patterns and become aware of their effect and then learn new, healthier ways to think and interact. In general, I combine traditional psychotherapy with a practical, problem-solving approach that creates a dynamic and efficient path for change and problem resolution.
