Areas of Practice

Anxiety

The key features of anxiety are persistent and excessive worry about various domains, including work and school performance, that the individual finds difficult to control. The individual can also experience changes in sleep pattern, restlessness, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and muscle tension. The anxiety and excessive worry can result in marked impairment in functioning related to school, work, and maintaining relationships.

PTSD

The essential feature of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the development of characteristic symptoms following exposure to one or more traumatic events. The clinical presentation of PTSD varies.

Depression

Depression is very real to anyone experiencing it. Symptoms can vary greatly, but can include apathy, hopelessness, difficulty sleeping or wanting to sleep all of the time, guilt, anxiety, loss of appetite or overeating, lethargy, changes in libido, and loss of pleasure.

Relationships

Many relationship conflicts occur due to failure to communicate. Over time, problems and stress build up. If they are not resolved, the anger individuals hold against each other pollutes their 

relationship. Therapy gives partners (whether romantic, family, work, etc.) a chance to learn new communication skills in a safe, non-confrontive environment.

Trauma

Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives. 

Adolescent Therapy

When adolescents go through tough times, they may not always have the ability to express how they are thinking and feeling. Pain tends to come out sideways for these individuals, often seen in their behavior and interactions with others – family members, peers, and/or teachers.
