"The only way out is through"
Life Stress & Transitions.
You don't always 'need a reason' to come to therapy. Lots of my clients come to therapy to have a safe space to process the ins and outs of their lives. Others are going through a life transition such as a new marriage, loneliness, or job stress.
If you are feeling the pressures of life pushing down on you and need somewhere to turn for support, I would be happy to work with you to find your peace.
Some other common concerns therapy can help with:
Feeling Stuck in Life
Self Esteem/Body image
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
My clients come to me for all sorts of relationship concerns. Some familiar themes are below.
Can I Work On My Relationship Alone?: Yes. Most of my clients come to individual therapy looking for support because of relationship struggles. While there is valuable work that can be done in couples therapy, working with a therapist alone can also bring self discovery and understanding of your personal needs in your relationship.
I'm Not Really Sure if Something is Wrong In My Relationship, But I'm Not Happy: Therapy is where exploration of our thoughts, feelings, and desires can take place without judgement, or consequences. Lets explore your feelings behind your relationship, and how your relationship is impacting your wellbeing.
I Am Not Sure I Even Want to Continue My Relationship, but I Can’t Seem to Leave: There are many reasons why it might be tough to leave your relationship, even when you know it's best for you. Relationship addiction, attachment, and fear of losing the comfort of the familiar are a few reasons. Therapy can help you to feel strong again, learn about the dynamics that keep you stuck, and feel confident to make the choices to move forward.
Are you grieving the end of your relationship?: My clients come to therapy for all types of reasons, one of them being struggling to move past, and feel hope again after an ended relationship. Let’s work to get YOU back!
Reflection: We will look closely at those people and things in your life which are toxic, defeating, or enabling unhealthy patterns.
Body Image & Food Concerns.
Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, in recovery, or want to learn how to love yourself & your body. We can work through it together.
My clients come to me for a variety of reasons: past eating disorders, no eating disorder history, but struggling with loving their bodies. I operate with the approach of health at every size (HAES Model).
I have previously worked in high levels of care treating women & adolescents struggling with eating disorders. I now enjoy helping those struggling to maintain a quality of life free from the pains that food & body image distress can cause.
How we will work together: We will create real strategies that you can put to use now. We will work together to plan tangible, workable prevention habits and skills to get through those most difficult times so that you can resist negative self talk & behaviors and thrive as your best self.
Eating Disorder Coaching for Caregivers &
Are you concerned about a loved one and their relationship with food?
Is food become problematic to the point of interfering with your relationship?
Feeling powerless through their struggles?
Are you looking for support, education, or guidance?
Watching someone you care about struggle with food, and not knowing what to do can be one of the most difficult things to deal with. I can help. I offer supportive, coaching style meetings which will address your concerns, and give you the tools you need to feel more confident in being able to support your loved one.
A 30 minute coaching/support session can help.
During a session we will discuss your specific concerns, whether these concerns rise to the level of disordered eating, and how you can help. Together we can address how to best offer your support, how to navigate meal times, as well as learn more about eating disorders and what they are.
Helpful/unhelpful conversations, things to say and not to say
