A crisis is a turning point in an emotionally significant situation or prompted by a radical change in a person's life that needs immediate and serious attention. What are the right steps to take in this "moment of truth" so that we end up "for the better?"
A personal crisis can come about just because we are having difficulty in understanding and/or coping with distressing emotions and/or thoughts. Or it can be triggered by uncertainty and confusion over our own self-definition in relation to academic, career, or stage of life circumstances.
A relational crisis can come about due to conflict, betrayal, and/or disappointment in our relationships with friends, intimate partners, children, parents, teachers, and/or fellow workers. This can be related to obstacles or blocks to establishing meaningful communication; difficulty or inability to forgive; difficulty or inability to be open and honest; difficulty or inability to be vulnerable; and difficulty or inability to manage our fears.
As an experienced therapist, my goal is to help you address what is of concern to you at this moment as quickly and decisively as possible. While we can't change the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve the current challenges in your life. By applying an integrative approach to therapy we can work together to unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals.
