When you’re experiencing a difficult time, it helps to know you’re not alone. My areas of focus include depression and anxiety (including hypochondria or “health anxiety”) in children and adults; coping with life transitions and job stress; and dating, relationships and recovering from painful breakups. I can help you with the following:
DEPRESSION: Feeling helpless, hopeless and lethargic? Are you experiencing a loss of interest in daily activities, sleep changes, weight fluctuations, trouble concentrating, guilt, low self-esteem, and unexplained aches and pains? If so, you may be depressed. You’re not alone: According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it’s one of the most common disorders in the United States.
ANXIETY: Anxiety is often depression’s partner in crime. Common symptoms include irrational and excessive fear and worry, tension and jumpiness, persistent pessimism, restlessness, irritability and a perpetual flight-or-flight angst that can lead to headaches, muscle tension, shortness of breath and other physical symptoms. It can be exhausting and debilitating, and is also one of the most common mental disorders in the United States.
LIFE TRANSITIONS/JOB STRESS: Whether you’re considering a move, going through a divorce, contemplating a career change or just feel unsettled, talking with an unbiased and experienced professional can help. I provide coaching, as well as insight and suggestions that clients have not thought of simply because they’re overwhelmed. This often occurs with clients undergoing job stress. Because let’s face it: When you spend at least 40 hours a week in an office or on a job that’s emotionally toxic, it’s easy to lose perspective.
DATING/RELATIONSHIPS: I often work with single men and women navigating the trials and tribulations of dating and relationships. I also help individuals recovering from devastating and painful breakups so they can emerge more confident and enlightened. I’ve written extensively about dating and sex for publications including Vive, Las Olas, Miami Metro, The Boca Raton Observer and more (see some of my articles above). I’ve also been interviewed as a “dating expert” on local news stations including NBC 6-Channel 6 and WPLG-Channel 10, and in The Palm Beach Post.
