Psychotherapy

All of us need help from time to time.

All of us face situations that are overwhelming, distressing and seemingly insurmountable. At those times, we don’t have to face life’s challenges alone. There are many methods available to us to help us overcome problems both past and present while, while teaching us how to respond in the future One such tool is psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy is defined as a way to “improve an individual’s well-being or mental health by resolving or mitigating troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts or emotions, and improve relationship and social skills.” (Wikipedia) As a counselor in Charlotte, NC, my goal is to help you find your focus and to strengthen your natural abilities. Psychotherapy includes a variety of approaches– music, art, journaling, meditation, etc. – which allows me to help you gain perspective about your specific narrative and move forward.

Everything that happens in our lives has an effect on how we perceive present and future events. Through psychotherapy, you can learn how to accept what each day brings – without getting stressed out, overwhelmed or merely doing something just for the sake of doing it. I will help you learn how to unwind, so you can find your focus, determine where you want to be, and what you want to achieve.

I see problems and challenges as an opportunity for growth and expanding your knowledge, and use psychotherapy to help you find your balance and set boundaries. I will work with you so you can enjoy the present in the present; not stressing about what’s next. Through psychotherapy sessions you will learn:

  • Who you are as a person.
  • What it is that helps you unwind.
  • What your primary and secondary focuses are.
  • What steps need to be taken to accomplish your goals.
  • How to find your balance.
  • Get an understanding of your own unique emotional code.
  • That feelings, and the sharing of them is healthy – suppressing them only brings heartache.
  • How to set better boundaries, so that you can become stronger and healthier.

Through psychotherapy, I can help you gain insight into what brought the challenges you are struggling with and then determine how you can use this situation to become stronger. I believe in spending more time on building up your strengths and shoring up your defenses so you don’t cope with things but overcome them.

Psychotherapy is beneficial for resolving all kinds of issues that can occur in anyone’s life. Psychotherapy today is about wellness and wholeness. It helps people explore issues in order to become more conscious in their interactions and choices. It can lessen the symptoms of depression and anxiety and help improve coping skills. Individual therapy often enhances self-esteem and confidence. When people have self-esteem, it helps them set appropriate boundaries, strengthens their relationships, and take care of their needs.

Psychotherapy is very helpful in helping to explore one’s beliefs in order to discard outdated modes of thinking or coping that are no longer useful. I like to help people determine what their intentions are in order to become more aware of what they are creating in their life. It is my belief that we co-create our reality. You don’t have to go through life feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. Let me help you learn how to overcome and succeed. Give the office a call today.
