Online Appointments Are Available!
Through personal experience of having taken the "long way" toward exploring my own mental health, I realized that it wasn't the "long way" at all -- it was the unsupported way.
Life is hard. Especially right now. Especially when the ever-present feeling of perfectionism hangs over you. You find yourself worrying about everyone else getting what they need more than what you need yourself. Worried thoughts are overtaking your mind; motivation is at its lowest; you have trouble sleeping, or can't even get out of bed. You're feeling lost, overwhelmed, or that you'll never make the "right" decision.
You don't need to suffer alone. We'll tackle your challenges together as you discover for yourself how much courage you're capable of.
High School Students
Challenges with self-esteem, confidence, and self-identify are extremely common in this age group, as are symptoms of depression and anxiety.
You're trying to figure out who you are and where you belong, all while navigating a world that adults designed for you.
You know a bit more about who your are and what you want, but what do you do with that information? Is your path authentic to who you really are?
As a young adult, you're potentially experiencing the most freedom with the least amount of responsibility you've ever known -- where do you want that to guide you?
You may have discovered what your purpose is... but balancing work, class, internship, and some semblance of a social life while trying to squeeze in some sleep may not be the easiest experience.
It's common to feel stressed, lost, overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious when facing these circumstances.
Feelings of excessive and uncontrollable worry, either generally or regarding a specific thing. Panic attacks; perfectionism; persistent thoughts of "what if?"
Feelings of extreme sadness or hopelessness; daily fatigue; loss of interest in your favorite things; poor sleep; abnormal eating habits; thoughts of suicide or self-harm.
Stress and Burnout
Responsibilities may have gotten to the point where they've exceeded your ability to cope. You're feeling overwhelmed, or perhaps have negative attitudes toward your work.
As humans, we get used to patterns and routines; they keep us safe. When something significant shifts in our lives, sometimes we don't know how to shift along with it.
Sense of Self
How would you describe your personality? Your values? What do you believe in, and what motivates you? Has your sense of self been suppressed enough to where you focus more on others' needs than your own?
Many people find their sense of purpose in their career. What matters to you? What are your strengths and interests, and how can you apply them?
