Help for now; hope for the future

I would like to commend you for making the effort to safeguard your greatest assets: your marriage, your relationships with family and friends, and your own mental health.

An annual survey on stress released in August 2017 by the American Psychological Association indicated money, work, and concerns about the future of our nation top American’s list of stressors.   Given the gravity of the anxiety this causes, a majority of adults (59 percent) said they consider this the lowest point in our nation’s history that they can remember — a feeling that spans generations, including individuals who have lived through World War II and Vietnam, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the September 11 terrorist attacks, and high-profile mass shootings.  A vast majority have found themselves relying on their survival instincts to get through these tough times.  Unfortunately, our survival instincts only benefit us in the short-term and do not help us in our pursuit to find resolution to life’s problems.  As a result, our self-esteem and confidence suffers, our relationships break down, and we find ourselves full of anxiety, feeling dejected, depressed, and sometimes hopeless . 

If you are experiencing similar thoughts and emotions, you are definitely not alone.  The good news is that by choosing to work with a professional therapist, it is entirely probable and possible to feel better about yourself, your relationships, and your life.  It is quite normal if you are nervous, anxious, or fearful about reaching out for help or beginning the counseling process.  My warm therapeutic approach helps people overcome their initial angst which in turn puts them on the path to better deal with the problems that trouble them.

If you are ready to move forward, please email me or call me at (916) 781-9888.  I’m happy to offer a complimentary phone consultation to answer any questions you may have regarding the services I offer.  I am conveniently located on Douglas Boulevard in Roseville.  I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
