You don't have to be in constant crisis to think about getting professional help.
Stress can affect our physical, mental, and emotional health. It can make it difficult to be present with family, to accomplish work or school tasks. You may feel worn down or constantly exhausted. Perhaps you're on edge and snapping at your roommates or family members.
Therapy can help you manage your workload and set reasonable goals for yourself. If the overload is due to taking on too much, we may work on a plan to speak to your boss, teachers, or teammates to redistribute your workload or ask for much needed help. We can break larger tasks into manageable chunks and set up realistic timelines and goals along the way.
Whether you are experiencing chronic or acute stress, therapy can help you make a plan and find relief.
Stress can take a physical toll on the body. Unexplained aches and pains, trouble sleeping or eating, and headaches or migraines may have a solution.
Stress can manifest in your life as exhaustion, insomnia, headaches, migraines, sore muscles. You may be withdrawing from social activities because you feel you have too much on your plate, or because once you're done working for the day you don't have any energy left to socialize.
You may be stressed about work, finances, health of yourself or a family member, parenthood, even your personal safety. We will explore the source of your stress so that we can devise a plan that may include nutrition, exercise, journaling, or other forms of stress relief and self expression.
