Stress Management Counseling

You can't seem to get it together. You struggle with focusing on any task you have. Forgetfulness and frustration has become the norm for you. You find yourself getting angry quickly and easily with the ones you care about most. You may even notice physical problems arise when you feel stressed, including headaches, muscle pain, sleep issues, and high blood pressure, to name a few. And none of these issues makes the stress you feel any easier to manage. 
But no matter where your stress comes from, right now, it is making your life unmanageable, overwhelming, and chaotic. 

Stress can come from many places.

Stressors From Outside Ourselves

    Work-Related Issues
    Family Conflict
    Financial Problems
    Loss of a Loved One
    Divorce
    Moving to a New Home

Stressors From Within Ourselves

    Low Self-Esteem or Confidence
    Unmet Expectations
    Perfectionism
    Difficulty Responding to Change
    Unrealistic Expectations of Self
    Fear About the Future

But no matter where your stress comes from, right now, it is making your life unmanageable, overwhelming, and chaotic. 

You can find restoration and healing.

By working together through counseling, I can help you build on your strengths to find creative solutions. We want to further our understanding about specific patterns in your life that continue the whirlwind of chaos, and then learn new tools or approaches to better navigate these challenges. Counseling helps you build insight that provides a safe base from which you can engage your experiences in the future. As this change arises, we are free to embody ourselves more deeply and to align our daily lives, intentions, choices, commitments. 
Individual counseling sessions last between 45-50 minutes and cost $135 per session. I offer reduced fees for first responders, military, and their families. Sessions occur on average once every week or two weeks. Based on your goals and treatment needs, therapy and counseling can be as brief as 8-10 sessions or can be longer-term over a year or two. 

I offer a free 20-minute consultation for those interested in counseling services. It will give you a chance to describe your particular issue, ask any questions about my experience, and to come to a decision about whether I am the right fit for you.

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
