Everyone has problems. We cannot control the circumstances or people that show up in our lives, but we can decide how we are going to respond to them. Not knowing how you feel, what you think or what you want contributes to confusion, frustration, anxiety and depression. Establishing your own authentic self, as opposed to what others want you to be, can be a difficult task. Developing assertive communication skills and understanding your own emotional boundaries are essential to managing distressing symptoms and situations. I can help you take charge of your life and create the one you want.
I work mostly from a cognitive behavioral and solution focused approach. How you feel is a reaction to what you think and believe. Discovering your thoughts gives you more choices for change. This treatment approach is very effective with all mood disorders, anxieties, trauma's, relationship issues, grief etc..
I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for 24 years, and became comfortable with holistic and alternative approaches to healing and wellness. Approaching your mental health issues from an inclusive perspective provides even more choices for creating the life you want. Call for your free consultation.
