Effective Therapy to Support You on Your Mental Health & Wellness Journey 

Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you,

doesn't mean you can, should, or need to do it alone.

Help for Anxiety and Stress

 Anxiety is the most common mental health condition

experienced among adults.  

So if this is something you've been struggling with, know that you are not alone.

Below are common challenges that may signal that it's a good sign that it's time to seek professional help

  • Feeling nervous, tense, or on edge

  • Unable to stop worrying 

  • Increased restlessness or challenges relaxing

  • Difficulties falling or staying asleep

  • Becoming easily annoyed or irritated 

  • Avoiding people or situations 

  • Difficulty concentrating  

  • Experiencing a looming fear that something bad will happen in the future

Checklists aside, the greatest tell-tale sign that it’s time to reach out is when you feel drawn to do so. You are the best judge of your experience and there are no minimum requirements that you need to meet before seeking help.

Therapy can help.

Research shows that 75% of people who participate in therapy report benefiting from it. 

Therapy can you: 

  • Develop a sense of calm and centeredness 
     

  • Develop healthy coping mechanisms to decrease symptoms of anxiety 
     

  • Increase mindfulness so you can engage more fully in your life
     

  • Connect with yourself and others on a deeper, more meaningful level

What to Expect

While we would work together to create an individual plan to fit your needs, budget and schedule, the standard course of therapy includes weekly 30 or 50 minute sessions that are conducted over a secure video platform. 

  • Therapy may be goal-directed, meaning that we would work towards accomplishing a specific outcome, such as decreasing anxiety or improving your mood. 
     

  • Alternatively, therapy may be less directive and serve as more of an emotional landing space aka, a time and place for you to check-in, be heard, and emotionally recharge for the week ahead.

For most, therapy is a mix of the two.

Identifying what feels most comfortable and helpful to you is one of the topics that we discuss during the initial consultation.
