Everyone experiences emotional distress from time to time, but sometimes the distress is particularly long lasting, and sometimes it can interfere with your ability to function in your daily life. Therapy can be of help to you during these times by addressing the causes for your distress and finding ways to relieve your symptoms. At times, emotional distress or relationship problems, such as excessive shyness, anxiety, challenges in effective communication, lack of assertiveness, or poor anger control, can be helped greatly by acquiring or strengthening coping skills. These skills can benefit many of the most important areas of your life.
Sometimes it is not necessarily distress that brings someone to therapy, but rather a desire for increased personal growth. We can work together to help you identify obstacles that have kept you from reaching your goals, and developing an approach to shift those behaviors or perceptions in ways that can benefit you. Therapy can help you learn more about yourself, your relationships, and how you can deepen your personal satisfaction in your life.
My therapy sessions with Lindsey represent one of the most important inflection points in my life. I initially started seeing Lindsey to deal with specific life circumstances, and had I come out of those sessions with only the tools to get me through that period I would have viewed therapy as a huge success, but I got so much more than that. Lindsey, through her relaxed non-judgmental approach, helped me identify and deal with deeper issues that I had never addressed before. Long story short I came out of those sessions a much happier and more empathetic person than I was before. I would strongly recommend Lindsey to anyone looking for a therapist. - Chuck
