My Approach

1. Personality Informed Strengths-Based Counseling

Depression, Anxiety, OCD, panic and more... at this unusual time in the world, we are all about on our last nerve.  With worrying about getting to get sick, managing kids in quarantine, caring for parents, dealing with financial stress, and less time and money for self-care... it all leads to stress in relationships Are all symptoms of underlying problems.  Underlying issues usually boil down to two issues:  Our connection to others and our connection to ourselves.  

The above are usually the result of low-self-esteem, poor fit with environment, feeling stuck or uninspired

Unsatifying relationships, unhealthy attachments, trust or belief in someone else, not loving or listening to ourselves, a lack of acceptance, fusing thought and feeling with self.

And what underlies both of the above - rigidity.  Inflexibilty either within the self or within a significant force in the personal ecosystem.  Some stuckness.  When we identify the rigidity, the obstacle, we can leverage strengths to build a bridge over it, work around it, or simply put it down and chart a path that leaves it behind.
