Are you in a rut?

We all have negative beliefs that can get in the way of our happiness. Over time, these can turn into automatic habits of thinking and reacting, without any awareness of what’s really going on. If you’re in this place, you may find yourself playing out the same patterns in your relationships.  And you may be so used to the pain and suffering that you don’t bother to try and change it.

 

It's possible you’re avoiding the issue – choosing not to even think about it. Or you may go through each day with a constant feeling of being stuck… “off”…or “just getting by”. If you manage to stay somewhat productive and functioning, you may not even  stop to consider that you’re settling for a life that’s unfulfilling.

 

It’s possible that you’ve become totally comfortable with being uncomfortable.

 

I can help you turn things around - by helping you understand yourself, your mind, and what’s happening beneath the surface that drives your thoughts and behaviors. This awareness can provide you with a sense of clarity – to finally notice it all. You’ll learn why you do the things you do, and feel the way you feel. You’ll come to see that your “bad” choices  and reactions were really just your way of adapting and protecting yourself from hard situations. You’ll learn to approach yourself with compassion and rid yourself of shame and self-punishment.

 

Why? So you can feel better. So your life can have meaning and enjoyment. It’s not just talk. There are things that can be done to help you feel more content…happier.

My Approach

I believe in experiential processes. This means I won’t lecture to you or force my opinions onto you. Instead, you’ll learn by doing – having conversations, imaging scenarios, reflecting, and pausing to notice things that may have slipped by you before. The goal is to look at your own life through your lived experiences, but using a different lens.

In the world of counseling, we say that nothing changes until something changes. While this may sound obvious at first, many of us hope for things to be different while doing things as we’ve always done them. Through experiential sessions, you’ll break through and transform by taking a new approach. This can include:

 

  • Becoming aware of your own needs and improving your connection to yourself

  • Identifying patterns that have appeared and reappeared throughout your life

  • Considering your relationships and boundaries from a new perspective

  • Reprograming yourself in a way that allows you to disconnect from your default thoughts and reactions.

  • Updating stories in your life that may be outdated
