Individual Therapy

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

– Mark Twain

Why does everything seem like a struggle?

You look around and watch others successfully balance all of life’s parts: job, family, kids, fun. They seem content and happy.

But happiness is something you haven’t felt in a long time.

Your motivation is gone. Forget physical activity. You feel sluggish and tired all the time. You really can’t remember when you had any joy in your life.

The anxiety is real. Sometimes it’s so hard just to breathe and catch your breath. Why do you worry about every little thing?

Why does everything seem like an uphill battle? Making decisions about anything is exhausting. You have trouble getting anything done on time, and your living space is a mess. But you don’t know how to change. You’ve had enough!

There has to be more to life than this.

You see others with happy families and amazing jobs having fun doing activities they love. Meanwhile, your relationships are lacking, and your job is less than fulfilling.

And what activities do you even like to do? You can’t remember.

You want to transform your life into an amazing one… but how?

So… where do you turn?

You’ve gotten on Google for occasional advice, but you end up being more confused.

Maybe you’ve gotten answers from social media, but looking at Instagram just makes you more depressed because everyone seems to be living life to the fullest.

You don’t want to burden your friends and family with how you feel. Besides, they wouldn’t understand anyway.

What do you do now?

Therapy can help in so many ways.

Bolster your confidence…

What makes you… you? You only focus on the negative parts, but what about the good parts? In therapy, we will delve into your strengths to be more confident in your relationships, job, and activities.

Increase your motivation…

Let’s talk about why you aren’t motivated. Maybe you need to improve a relationship or find a new job, but doing that seems too difficult. By working together, we will develop a plan that won’t seem as overwhelming to meet your goals.

Improve your communication…

Having difficulty finding the right words when communicating with others? In therapy, we will discuss effective ways to get your points across, therefore improving your relationships.

Manage your emotions…

Get control of your emotions! Sounds good, right? Of course, it’s okay to have feelings, but it’s what you do when you have feelings that matter. Screaming at someone, retreating to your bed for days, or crying uncontrollably over minor setbacks are ineffective ways of dealing with your feelings. In therapy, you will learn to acknowledge your thoughts and feelings and then take action on the path to your goals.

Feel good about yourself…

Feel good about yourself? “Ha! No way!” you say. There is just too much negativity in your life for you to feel good. But wait! In therapy, we will discuss gradual lifestyle changes, like getting the right amount of sleep, eating better, adding in some fresh air and physical activity, and doing guided meditation for 10 minutes a day. These strategies will increase your energy level, improve your mood, and make you feel good. As you slowly feel better about yourself, you will readily pursue your hopes and dreams.

Improve your relationships…

Okay, so you haven’t been much of a friend lately. It’s hard to focus on other people when you are struggling to even be with yourself. Through therapy, you will start feeling better about yourself, which will impact your relationships positively. With more confidence and joy, you will be the friend, partner, parent, and employee you want to be.

Find hope…

Hope is not something that you currently have. How do you find hope? Hope for the present. Hope for the future. By working through tough times in the past, addressing the present, and setting future goals, hope begins to shine through the darkness. Once you feel that glimmer of hope, change gets easier and easier.

Reach your goals…

What are your goals? You may have had some in the past, but those are now overshadowed by regular daily living. An important piece of therapy is figuring out what goals you want to set and how to reach them. Let us help you regain some passion in your life!

Now is the time to invest in yourself!

We want to offer you a free consultation to get started. Then, if we both feel we are a good fit, we will make an appointment for an in-person or virtual session.

In the first session, we will dive deeper into your struggles and formulate a plan for change. We will create goals through our next sessions and discuss paths to propel you forward toward those goals. We will use any bumps in the road as learning opportunities to promote your growth.

It’s time for change… and you can do this. Imagine being a confident, happy, motivated, hopeful, and productive person!

Stop waiting and take that first step. Call us today to schedule your free consultation: (973) 524-6501.
