When your negative thoughts take over, what do you do? Do you find yourself anxious, depressed, and struggling with your self-esteem or confidence? Or maybe the negative thoughts about your worth, appearance and mistakes consume you until it feels like it's hard to function? Difficult transitions and trauma have a way of influencing the way you view yourself. Working with your goals, I can help you identify the negative thoughts and beliefs that lead to anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. In this safe and supportive atmosphere, you will learn to challenge these thoughts, and understand their origins.
It's time to retrain your brain. It's time to identify what is true about yourself, and it's time to learn to grow with improved coping skills. While taking the first step can be difficult, this journey is all about empowering you to evolve into the best version of yourself. When you're ready, I'm here to walk beside you.
