Does Life Feel Too Difficult?

As a therapist with over 30 years experience, I can gently guide you towards a life that has more fulfillment and joy.

Life gets stressful and challenging for all of us at times. However, when you have been struggling for a while and haven’t been able to make the changes you need to feel better, you’re likely a good candidate for counseling.

I provide counseling to 2 main groups of people:

1Those who have been suffering for a long time. I see people with a history of anxiety, depression, painful or abusive relationships, as well as those with past traumas and PTSD, including abuse.

2Those having recent life or relationship problems. I also work with people who are having relationship challenges or who are dealing with a relationship break-up. Or, they might be having problems at work or feel they are lacking direction in their life.

Although I provide therapy to a wide variety of people, what they have in common is that they want help to feel better and to enjoy their lives more. They recognize that counseling is something that can help get them there faster than they could on their own.

Your Life Can Be Better!

With help from a compassionate and skilled therapist, you can have more ease in your life and be more at peace.

Every day, people turn their lives around through therapy. You can do it too — even if you feel discouraged right now.

Some Scenarios That Might Bring You to See a Counselor:

1You’re unhappy. Your life isn’t going the way you want it to and you haven’t been able to turn things around.

2You feel stuck, maybe depressed, like a big weight is holding you down.

3Your relationships might be a struggle and causing you pain. You might be in a relationship with someone who is hurting you emotionally, physically, or sexually.

4You feel overwhelmed by your emotions at times and don’t know what to do about it. It could be anger, sadness, fear or guilt.

5You may suffer from excessive worry of anxiety – even panic attacks sometimes.

6Your self-esteem is suffering. You don’t feel good about who you are.

Here Are Some Of The Ways You Can Benefit From Therapy:

1Feel stronger and more confident. Affirm your self-worth and the strengths that you have.

2Lift your mood, resolve difficult emotions, and feel more in control.

3Have more satisfying and healthier relationships. Get your needs met more often and improve communication skills.

4Have a clearer sense of direction for your life and the confidence that you deserve to have a life you enjoy.

Why Work With Me As Your Counselor?

I’ve been successfully providing therapy to people for over 30 years in Cortland, New York. I’ve helped hundreds of people during this time and learned a great deal about what it takes for people to change their lives.

My role as a therapist is to support and encourage you to take the steps you need to in order to have a satisfying life. During our counseling sessions, we’ll not only talk about your challenges and how to heal and change them, we’ll also focus on your strengths and how you can use them to your best advantage.

Research in counseling shows the relationship between counselor and client plays a major role in how people heal and make changes in their lives. To this end, I make every effort to hear and validate my client’s concerns, feelings and thoughts. The quality of our relationship is central to the healing process. Therefore, I make sure to follow your lead in helping you get what you need and want.
