Caring and Compassionate
counseling for adults in Charlotte, NC
You are so stressed you don’t know if you are coming or going.
You feel anxious, irritable and exhausted.
There has been a major shift in your life and you feel stuck.
You want a LGBTQ affirming counselor who offers a brave space to talk.
Life transitions such as divorce, health issues (new diagnosis, caring for a parent or child with physical and/or cognitive disabilities), death of a loved one, career change or career loss, or retirement can bring on a number of unfamiliar thoughts and feelings. You question what you should do or should have done to ease the feelings of worry and sleepless nights. Contact me about counseling and together we will work to address your feelings of uncertainty.
Anxiety and Stress
Feelings such as increased sadness, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, helplessness, worry, etc. are uncomfortable. These feelings can create strained relationships in many aspects of life. You are ready to understand where excessive stress and anxiety come from and you want to start therapy to work through them. Let’s work together to explore the process of understanding. Let's talk!
Gender identity and/or sexual identity are not always a source of distress among individuals who identify at LGBTQ+. This is an unfortunate assumption made by family, friends, colleagues, etc. but I understand this may or may not be your reality. You want to work through thoughts and feelings you have about your gender identity. And you are looking for a nonjudgmental and brave space to explore issues such as coming out, anxiety, or stress. Reach out to me about counseling and let's chat!
