How Can Psychology Help You?
A New Perspective.
One of the things I help clients with is gaining a new view or perspective on the situations in their lives. We all get stuck in ruts from time to time, and can begin to feel like we are “stuck” or have “no choice” but to do what we are doing, and often that translates to discomfort, anxiety, or unhappiness. A psychologist can help their clients identify different, previously un-thought-of choices and plans of action.
New Ways of Thinking About the World and Yourself.
One of the things that psychologists (especially cognitive-behaviorally oriented psychologists) focus on is helping their clients challenge their long-held beliefs and thought patterns. Often learning to think about things in new, healthier ways can help lead to improved mental health.
New Set of Skills.
When it comes to managing stress, anxiety, anger, and other emotions, some of us could use some new, healthier skills. Much of what psychologists do is teach their clients new coping strategies during difficult, stressful times in their lives.
A Place to Vent.
While many of my clients use their sessions to learn new skills, some use their time with me to vent, explain, be heard, and try to better understand their lives by using me as a sounding board. I provide a confidential, non-judgmental place to talk and learn strategies for achieving better mental health.
Working on Goals.
As a psychologist and a coach, I am well-equipped to help my clients set outcomes and work alongside them to achieve goals they are meaningful to them. Keeping you motivated, feeling capable and boosting your sense of confidence is what I can do that supports you on your journey.
