    I’m over it!

    Are you having a hard time trying to figure things out? Are you constantly worried about the kids, work, bills, your relationship? Maybe you’re struggling with life transitions and can’t decide what to do. Are you a high achieving professional with a lot on your plate at work? You’re losing sleep, because your mind can’t settle and you feel exhausted.

    Your relationship has suffered. Your friends no longer call you to hang out, so your social life is practically nonexistent. The guilt you feel as a mom is one of your biggest burdens, so you try to compensate by giving the kids whatever they want and buying things to keep them happy, because you don’t have the time or energy to give them you. You’re questioning your job performance, because you’ve been slacking lately. You’re stressed out, burned out, overwhelmed, and feeling the pressure of being everything for everybody.

    You’re sick and tired of being sick and tired

    You want to be able to manage stress and life in general without feeling overwhelmed. Therapy with me can help you acknowledge your strength, identify your stressors, create solutions, and make immediate changes. You will increase your self-confidence, build your self-esteem, and improve your relationships. You will learn how to be comfortable in the skin you’re in without making decisions to please others while playing second fiddle to everyone else’s needs.

    I help women make themselves a priority without feeling guilt and self-doubt. I validate you and teach you to validate yourself, so you can see beyond today’s hardships into the future of a life that you desire.

    Stress therapy can help you:

    • Live with intention
    • Set healthier boundaries in your relationships and around your time and energy
    • Stop questioning whether you’re a good mother, daughter, significant other, sibling, or friend
    • Eliminate caring about what others will think of you
    • Learn to choose effective coping strategies to help you better manage your stressors
    • Understand that putting yourself first is not a selfish act
    • Build self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-love and acceptance
    • Make your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health a priority
    • Build or rebuild a life of joy, peace, and balance you deserve without feeling guilty

    My approach to Stress Therapy is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

    This approach encourages you to embrace your thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them. The goal of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is to increase your ability to enter the present moment more fully and either change or persist in behavior when doing so serves valued ends. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helps you commit to facing the problem head-on rather than avoiding your stressors.

    I use this approach to help you commit to fully embracing the moment and make the changes necessary to see your desired outcome. Instead of allowing daily stressors to overwhelm you, I teach you how to identify and assess the problem, explore solutions, and immediately implement the most efficient strategy to resolve the issue at hand.

    The change you want to see is possible. Let’s rediscover the strength and courage you have to start living, not just existing.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Stress Therapy

    How long will I have to be in therapy?

    The duration of therapy depends on you and your goals. I will provide honest, realistic feedback based on how you are progressing and it can be discussed at any time during the therapeutic process.

    How will I know when I’m less stressed?

    You will FEEL a difference! Your mind will become more and more clear. You will feel confident making decisions without hesitation. You will know which coping strategies to use in any given situation. You will be able to dismiss others’ opinions about you and focus on what makes you happy. Those are some things you will notice as you progress, but ultimately you will have to decide when you are feeling less stressed.

    Do you give homework or assignments?

    During the therapy process, you will receive therapeutic homework, which I call “grow work,” that may require you to write or process, identify, explore, etc. to help you dig deeper and stay focused on your goals when you’re not sitting in a therapy session.
