Are you in a frequent battle with your inner critic?
Sometimes our inner critic can be relentless by telling us we aren’t good enough, strong enough, smart enough, skinny enough, outgoing enough, attractive enough, or likeable enough to do something. That voice can become so common that we don’t even question the validity of it anymore. It eventually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because at some point we begin viewing the world through that lens of never being able to measure up. We then begin to seek out information that agrees with our inner critic. We can also misread others’ comments, gestures or facial expressions so that it aligns with our own doubts about ourselves.
I can work with you to help you learn to quiet those negative voices that are always trying to hold you back and make you feel inadequate. I will help you explore the source of those negative voices along with how it shapes your view of yourself and with the people you encounter. My style is nonjudgmental, client-focused, and interactive. I ask questions when I have them and acknowledge patterns when I observe them. I consider you the expert about your life and I think of myself as a consultant whose job it is to examine meanings and search for answers. I will help you explore how events and relationships in your life have led you to where you are today. And then I will work with you on how to develop healthier thinking and behavior patterns that can lead to more satisfaction and fulfillment. It’s time to stop your own fears and worries of getting in the way of your happiness and success!
Infidelity can rob a relationship of its heart and soul. Some marriages end after the discovery of an affair while others find a way to move forward. I provide confidential counselling for anyone involved in an affair triangle and wondering what to do next.
Women and Alcohol
As life becomes more hectic and stressful, drinking becomes more popular, especially as a way to unwind and de-stress. Alcohol consumption is increasing in women along with the pressure to drink. I provide supportive counseling to help you better manage your alcohol use.
My office is located in a quiet office building just north of Venice, Florida on the corner of Tamiami Trail and Sorrento Drive.
I have flexible hours, and I am in the office on most weekdays, including some Saturdays. For those residing in Florida, on-line counselling (e-therapy) is also an option. Please check out my About page for more information.
