Common Questions

What is Anxiety? How does it differ from Stress?

Stress and anxiety are related, but often confused. Stress is tension associated with a specific event (e.g. a test or a job), while anxiety is a non-specific worry about the future. To find relief, people with anxiety may turn to repetitive routines, preoccupations, or addictions.  BACK

What is Depression?

People who struggle with depression often feel down for extended periods. They lose interest in activities that they once found pleasurable. Depression negatively affects millions of Americans each year.  BACK

Why is counseling good for dealing with transitions?

When you experience change in life, the change usually doesn't only affect the area that is changing. It affects all the areas of your life. When you feel overwhelmed and unable to manage the change, working with me will provide you a partner to relieve some of the stress, overwhelm, loneliness and chaos from your life. Re-definition is almost always needed when you go through major transitions and most of us try to continue on as if nothing has changed. Depression, anxiety and self-doubt begin to take over and sabotage. Getting in front of the transition can make all the difference for leading a happier life.  BACK

When is arguing no longer healthy in my marriage?

Conflict resolution is an important part of any relationship. Conflict plays a vital role in allowing two people to reconcile differing needs. Unfortunately, when conflict is handled poorly, it can cause distress in the relationship.  BACK

How important is communication in a relationship?

Feeling understood and understanding one's partner is what allows couples to deeply share one another's lives. Often, couples struggle with communication issues, which actually masks deeper relationship issues.  BACK

If I feel distrustful of my partner or people in general, what can I do?

Trust plays a vital role in sustaining a relationship. People trust differently. For some, trust is established quickly, while others are slow to grant trust. Similarly, some are able to forgive quickly, while others find it hard.  BACK

Who needs career counseling?

When you no longer feel motivated to go to work, are excessively tired or feel like your life is lacking purpose, career exploration can relieve the pain. We all have a gift to share and when you are able to discover that gift and engage in the delivery of it, every aspect of your life can be affected.  BACK
