Are You Going Through a Storm in Your Life?

Life can be easy when things are going your way.

Sooner or later, however, you’ll have to deal with setbacks.  These come in many forms – such as losses, disappointments, and failures.

As the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once said, “Into each life some rain must fall.”

When you’re dealing with mere “rain” in your life – such as occasional challenges – you may be able to cope with it on our own, or with the help of friends and family.

But what do you do when you’re in the middle of a storm?

Wouldn’t it be nice if life only threw you challenges you could handle, and gave you time to bounce back before the next one came around?  Life doesn’t always work that way.

The “storms” of life take many forms.

Some are emotional storms, where you’re battered by moods like depression, hopelessness, anxiety or anger. At such times, your mind is likely filled with all sorts of negative thoughts.

You can also go through a relationship storm.  You may have ongoing conflict with someone important to you that you just can’t resolve.  In contrast, you may not fight with your significant other, but you don’t feel any connection with him or her either.

Sometimes the absence of a relationship causes pain.  Perhaps you’re going though a breakup, divorce, or the death of a loved one.  Or maybe you struggle with being in relationships in the first place due to shyness, anxiety or loneliness.

As if that’s not enough, there are also the challenges of everyday life:  job stress, financial struggles and health concerns – just to name a few.

When difficulties such as these come at you all at once – and hang over you for long periods of time – it can feel like gloomy, cloudy weather in your life.

When they are really intense, such challenges can become a raging storm.  At such times you may feel alone, helpless, and hopeless.

Are you wondering whether it is time to get help?

You Can Weather the Storm

Despite your best efforts, you may be dealing with challenges that are beyond your abilities.  Your old ways of handling things may not be enough to face what you’re up against right now.

But here’s the good news:

As stuck as you may feel right now, there is a way out.  But you may need a guide to help you find it.  Or perhaps you can see the way through, but need a trained professional to help you.

Professional counseling can help you get from where you are now to where you want to be in your life.

If you’re open to learning and practicing new skills, I can show you how to become your own therapist so that you can overcome whatever you’re going through right now.

Take Charge of Your Life Today

As a psychologist, my counseling approach helps you understand why you are stuck and what you can do about it.

Working together, we can get you out of the rut you’re in and on a path towards greater happiness and fulfillment – starting today.

To this end, I have extensive training in research-based counseling techniques that don’t require medication or lengthy therapy – and I can teach them to you.

I specialize in helping my clients overcome the following challenges:

Sadness, discouragement, low self-esteem, and loss of motivation are some of the hallmarks of depression.  Sometimes depression occurs after a setback in your life, while other times there’s no clear trigger.  As painful as it is, this is a very treatable condition that responds well to effective, professional counseling.

Anxiety can lead to tension, worry, fear and nervousness.  It comes in many forms – including chronic worry, fear and panic attacks.  When left unchecked, it can significantly undermine your quality of life. With help, you can regain confidence and control.

Relationships can be one of life’s greatest joys when they are going well.  At the same time, they can be great source of pain when strained by unresolved conflicts, poor communication, or lack of connection. Learning the secrets of effective communication can turn your troubled relationship around.

Sometimes we go through rough patches where our stress level exceeds our coping ability.  This, in turn, can lead to all of the problems listed on this page, making our difficult circumstances even worse.  With professional counseling you can learn to rise above the struggles you’re going through right now.

Do you already have a reasonably good life, but just want to make it better? If you aren’t sure how to get from where you are now to where you want to be, personal growth counseling may be for you.

Perhaps you are struggling with one or more of the challenges mentioned above, but want to work with someone who understands your faith. Learn new tools that are consistent with your beliefs to help you get through your hardships.

You Can Learn How to Live the Life You Want

Would you like to handle the problems you’re facing more effectively – rather than just talking about your struggles indefinitely?

Are you looking for a counseling approach that will teach you real and tangible skills?

Would you like to make changes as quickly as possible, so that you can complete counseling and get on with your life – but with a better set of tools than you had before?

Are you willing to do the work it takes to make these changes?

If so, there is great hope for you.

It can be hard to reach out for counseling to get through the challenges you are facing. It can be even harder to find someone whom you trust, and has the knowledge and experience to help you overcome your difficulties.
