Do you feel anxious or nervous a lot of the time? Stressed out? Irritated? Overwhelmed?
Is anxiety affecting your relationships or your performance at work? Are you such a perfectionist that you can't leave work at work, or so overwhelmed with anxiety that you can't even start work when you're at the office? Do you second guess yourself a lot, constantly questioning whether everything is okay in your relationships? If you feel like you're not living up to your potential or that your life or relationships are out of whack because you're so anxious then maybe it's time to make some changes.
Anxiety is a gut-wrenching experience (often literally). But you don't have to feel this way. It's possible to get a handle on your anxiety, your life and your job. You can get back to that place where you enjoy things, engage fully with the people around you, and feel like you're in charge rather than feeling like you're out of control. It may sound impossible, but it's not. In my ten years as a therapist I've learned that you really can learn new skills and gain a different perspective. It's totally doable.
I know how it feels to be anxious, overworked, stressed out and completely at your wit's end. I spent ten years working in the design field with all the accompanying deadlines, long hours and pressure and I know first hand that anxiety can be a huge challenge. It can stop you from being your best self, the self that can step up, be heard loud and clear, and participate fully, with confidence. Anxiety can make everything much harder than it has to be.
Since my years working as a landscape architect, I've helped many men and women learn new ways to handle anxiety at work and at home so everything becomes easier (and happier!). The way I work is very collaborative and goal oriented. I'll help you come up with concrete baby steps, make plans and act of them so you feel stronger and more in control. One of the types of therapy I use is called EMDR. You can learn more about EMDR in this blog article and more about how I work with clients on this page.
One more thing: Successful therapy depends on a good fit between therapist and client. I've found that the best way to determine this initially is with a phone consultation. You can either call me to schedule a 15 minute phone call or send me an email (you can use the button above left) with some good times to reach you. I'll have a few questions for you and you can ask me questions, too. I look forward to speaking with you!
