Nurturing Hearts

Making changes in your life takes courage and is not easy. In fact, it can feel incredibly scary and be a difficult journey to navigate on your own.

But what if you had someone you could trust — someone you could talk to who did not judge you, who offered support, acceptance, compassion, and respect — someone who had your back? Can you imagine how much easier that would be?

  • Constantly feeling worried. Overthinking. What if this happens? What if that happens? What ifs galore… it's exhausting! Then you have trouble sleeping and are expected to get up and function. Yeah right. You're exhausted and feel miserable. You have trouble talking to people so you either don’t or you lose the words midsentence. It’s embarrassing. You miss out on things because your too afraid. Sometimes it doesn’t make sense and maybe people even think you're exaggerating, but you know you can’t help it. It controls you. It’s like being a prisoner. How horrible were the times that you struggled to breathe? Ever think you were dying or going crazy? You felt so scared to the point you were shaking? It’s even worse if people notice. 


    This describes anxiety, which can be completely crippling for some people.


    Imagine what your life would be like if you didn’t have to deal with this? 


    I have struggled with anxiety throughout my life, so I understand how awful it feels. That is why I am incredibly dedicated to helping people with anxiety struggles. Anxiety no longer controls my life and it doesn’t have to control yours. 


    How can I help you?


    I use a holistic approach because I believe in the mind-body connection. This means I want to know details about different areas of your life so I can better help you. You will learn something called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which has been proven to help with anxiety. I will also teach you relaxation strategies, mindfulness techniques, and many other tools. The stuff we do in unique to your needs.  Anxiety doesn’t need to control your life anymore. You can control it! 


    How much more freedom would you have if anxiety didn’t run the show? 

  • Feeling sad, down, or depressed? Life feels miserable and you have no motivation to do anything. You stopped caring. Things won’t get better. What’s the use in trying? You feel irritable around people. Sometimes the littlest things annoy you. Maybe you even let yourself go a little or even a lot. Things feel hopeless. You can’t imagine them getting better. Everything feels so difficult. You think- why is life so unfair? Why do bad things happen to you? You can’t shake feelings of guilt. Sometimes the guilt makes no sense because you know you shouldn’t feel guilty, yet you do. You feel worthless. You don’t like yourself much. People may not even like being around you because you bring them down. You feel all alone, no one understands, or cares about you. 


    These are symptoms of depression. There are different types of “mood disorders,” which is what depression is known as- so it’s important to get diagnosed. 


             Let me ask you this….


    What would your life be like if you could feel happier, more motivated, and more self-confident? 


    Imagine how this would affect different areas of your life like work or school. You can accomplish so much more, feel more energetic and positive. Good things can happen to you Relationships- your interactions with people may improve, which can mean more quality relationships, maybe even new ones. Yourself-maybe now you can set goals for yourself and stick to them. This may help you improve your lifestyle and have a better relationship with yourself. You may even begin to like yourself and eventually love yourself. You will talk nicer to yourself.


    Depression is equivalent to having weights and chains on your body. You just feel so weighed down. It’s a heavy burden.


    I can help you remove the weights and chains, step-by-step. 


    How can I help you?


    I will gather details about your life so I can better understand you. I will work with you to see what you specifically want to change, and we will create goals together. We will look at your thoughts more and improve them, which will improve your mood. I will also give you specific tasks to do for extra boosts.  

  • Every time you turn around there’s a problem. You feel so overwhelmed and stressed. Frustrated? You feel like you can’t take another thing. That one more thing may set you over the edge. There’s not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Your mind can’t seem to relax. Maybe your having sleep problems. You feel on edge. Maybe your relationships or health are suffering. Sometimes its hard to breathe. You feel like you have so many responsibilities and it can feel like too much to handle. Maybe you just got some bad news and you’re having a tough time with it. You feel like you're expected to do so much and just can't. 


    Stress can take a toll. It can cause issues in different areas of your life- including your health. You can learn to manage your stress better, feel calmer, and become more in control of your life. 


    How much better would it feel if you had more control of your life?

    Awesome. Right?!


    What if you could feel calmer and at ease, not just once in a while, but most of the time? 

    It would be worthwhile, right?!


    I understand… we live in a time where people are constantly on the go, struggle with juggling many things, and have so much on their plates. This is bound to create much stress. 


    How can I help you?


    You may be thinking why do I need therapy for managing stress? Well… therapy can help you with many struggles, including managing stress. I will want to get a better sense of what your stress looks like, how it affects your life, and we will find tools that will help you manage it better. Managing stress better = overall wellbeing. I will ask more about your personal interests so we can develop tools that are in alignment with them because this will help motivate you to make positive changes (motivation is good!). I may give you a questionnaire so we can track your progress. This will tell us if therapy is helping you and will allow us to tweak things as needed.
