Adult Individual Therapy

I have years experience helping clients to effectively alleviate depressive and anxious moods, and learn to cope with grief, loss, relationships, and difficult and painful life situations. I work daily with clients on the following issues:

  • ANXIETY / PANIC / FEAR (needing skills to calm, soothe, take charge and empower)
  • DEPRESSION (finding it more & more difficult enjoying life)
  • ANGER (just under the surface, explosive if not managed)
  • TRUST (not trusting others, not trusting self)
  • RELATIONSHIPS (needing to improve them, learn boundaries / self-care/healthy communication)
  • NEGATIVE THOUGHTS (stuck in past or recent painful experience, Self-limiting, Self-destructive behaviors)
  • MOTIVATION / CONCENTRATION (struggling to stay focused and motivated)
  • CONFIDENCE / SELF-ESTEEM (overwhelming self-doubt causing mistakes, faltering, more doubt).

Parents with happy daughter

LifeWorks AZ offers practical solutions for the most challenging problems faced by parents; defiance, disrespect, lying and cursing, issues at school, unmotivated behavior, ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, academic issues, possible drug use and more. Children with defiant and disrespectful behavior can place stress on all family members and makes coming home almost an unbearable thought.

LifeWorks AZ provides tools for parents and children to cope with and eliminate emotional and behavioral problems. Children who have emotional, behavioral or coaching needs will absolutely benefit from the parenting tools and techniques provided in session.

  • Are you a parent struggling with children that are angry, disrespectful, obnoxious, or even abusive toward you?
  • Does your child appear to be anxious or depressed, having difficulty sleeping, sleeping more than normal, not completing homework assignments, or has lost pleasure in things they have previously enjoyed?
  • Is your child unfocused, impulsive, or unable to follow directions or complete tasks?
  • Are you receiving phone calls from school about your childs behavior?
  • Is your child struggling making friends, appears withdrawn socially, is isolating in their bedroom, potentially using drugs?
  • Is there tension at home between family members? (arguing, aggression, or avoiding each other)
