I offer individual therapy, teletherapy, couples counseling, life coaching and relapse prevention support for people in recovery.
Sometimes our inner critic “bullies” us in such convincing ways that we begin to doubt ourselves. We start to believe the negative self-talk. Even when the changes in our lives are positive (i.e. new job, engagement, marriage, promotion, baby, etc), we wonder why we aren’t “happier”? Or we let anxiety steal our joy. It is easy to go through the day to day motions taking care of everyone else. It’s even “easy” to be there for other people and not get support for ourselves. This can result in feelings of sadness, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed.
Don’t keep waiting to get the help or support you need to feel healthy again. The good news is that no matter how long you have been struggling with these issues, change is possible!
Some of my specialty areas include:
- Therapy for teens and young adults—from high school through college— young adults are preparing for the next phase of their lives. This can be challenging with so many outside influences right at their fingertips. Outside influences (social media, YouTube, texting, etc) have a huge influence on young adults and teenagers these days. It has becomes even more challenging and confusing to make everyday decisions. They are exploring their options while maturing into their own identity. These transitions in life such as relocating, making new friends and exploring interests take a lot of courage while often times they feel anxious and lack confidence.
- Therapy for adults- Men and women alike are striving to balance in their lives. Trying to be the “perfect” spouse, employee, mother/father, friend, etc. It is hard to be everything to everyone. Women have difficulty saying “no” to family, friends, coworkers who ask them for help. It becomes increasingly difficult to juggle “life and family” without losing yourself.
- Those with co-occurring disorders who struggle with finding a therapist who understands both issues. Explore healthier coping skills, get support while working through issues that interfere with staying clean.
- Substance abuse– Substance abuse problems can take a toll on one’s mental and physical health. No one starts drinking or using drugs with the “goal” of becoming addicted to them. It’s time to stop beating yourself up and start getting help. I also work with family members who have someone abusing substances in their family. I work with parents, siblings or children of addicts who are looking for support and ways to cope.
- Recovery coaching– This is for people who feel they need some support but not necessarily “therapy”. I can help support your recovery from binge eating, drugs and alcohol or just plain “life”. If you’ve been in recovery for awhile or just completing a treatment program, this may be for you.
- Supervision – I am a state approved supervisor for those needing hours to get their LCPC license in Maryland.
