Self Esteem

One of the most profound determinants of how we experience our lives is how we feel about ourselves–our sense of worthiness. There are so many causes of why people have low self esteem and the effects of that can be life altering. Low self esteem often leads to depression, anxiety, lack of motivation and confidence, self-criticism, anger and hopelessness. Learning to love yourself often requires digging deep to find out where you learned that you weren't worthwhile or valued as you should have been.

Anxiety and Panic

If you suffer from anxiety, you are not alone. Anxiety is one of the most common complaints of people who seek counseling. Whether you feel nervous in social situations, you find yourself worrying about things consistently, you feel a consistent uneasiness, you have panic attacks, or anything in between, know that you don't have to live that way! Anxiety is very treatable and when you have strategies to combat it, you can often get to the underlying issues that are causing your symptoms.

Adolescent issues

Adolescence is a unique and formative time. Multiple physical, mental, emotional and social changes make adolescents vulnerable to feelings of depression, anxiety, and isolation. Emotional outbursts and poor school performance are often associated with these concerns. Some adolescents resort to risk taking behavior or drug and alcohol use as a way to self medicate. Interventions to regulate emotions, build resilience and create better coping mechanisms often provide lifelong tools for emotional health.

Whether you have lost interest in the activities you used to love, have trouble sleeping or never want to get out of bed, have had a significant change in appetite, or have trouble finding the joy in anything, depression is a miserable experience that goes beyond just normal feelings of sadness.  One of the key components for overcoming depression is support.  Working with a therapist provides a safe, stable relationship for you to process your feelings, heal your past hurts, and work your way back to a healthier version of you.



Do you find that you struggle to maintain healthy relationships? Do you have people in your life who you dont feel good around but you maintain the relationship anyway? Relationships are an innate need of all humans and when you struggle to connect with people in a way that's good for you it can lead to depression, anxiety, low self worth and even physical health problems. Much of what we've learned about relationships was learned at any early age, and we tend to repeat those patterns and recreate those relationships in adulthood.  Analyzing the unhealthy aspects of your relationships, whether past or present, can open a whole new understanding into your own needs in all relationships, so you can foster healthier relationships going forward.

Heal from Relationship Abuse

It is important to understand that not all abuse is physical. Emotional abuse is just as damaging.  Where physical abuse leaves visible signs that are easy to see, emotional abuse does not.  Because of this, it can be more difficult to explain, more difficult to understand, and go unnoticed/untreated for longer periods of time. Victims of emotional abuse suffer short-term and long-term consequences to their mental health. Research shows that mental health issues in victims are similar regardless of whether the maltreatment is physical or emotional. Often, the perpetrators of this type of abuse are narcissists or possess some type of personality disorder.  Regardless, learning to move on and heal from a toxic and abusive relationship can be life changing. Counseling is a critical component in order to work through this type of trauma and learn to rebuild your life and find positive, healthy relationships.


Infertility affects all aspects of your life.  It can create one of the most stressful life crises that an individual or couple has ever experienced and can affect your relationship with others, your perspective on life as well as how you feel about yourself.  Feelings of grief, loss, guilt, shame, disappointment, anxiety, depression, isolation and dealing with the multitude of medical decisions and the uncertainties that infertility brings can create great emotional turmoil for most people.  Whether you are beginning to explore your infertility treatment options or you have been through many different infertility treatments, the sense of loss and disappointment and the feelings and emotions of being out of control are similar.  Learning how to navigate this journey and having a safe space to talk about it is critical to your overall physical, mental and emotional health.



Stress presents differently for everyone and can manifest in either a physical or emotional state.  Long term stress can cause significant health issues and affect your quality of life. Learning how to manage your stress can alleviate some of the daily frustration that often presents as a result.  Being able to recognize your body's response to stress when it first appears is an important first step towards management.
