My favorite people to work with are those who are trying to understand who they are and what they want their life to be. Maybe they're in college, maybe they just went through a break-up, or maybe they're about to retire. With these types of challenges comes anxiety, depression, obsessive thinking, and plenty of distress. There also comes growth.
My approach is with mindfulness, attachment theory, and existential theory. Mindfulness is all about focusing on the present moment in a non-judgmental way. Life is going to have its ups and downs, and that is normal and perfectly okay. Often it's like we're riding a roller coaster; mindfulness is just trying to help us see that we're on a roller coaster, not trying to take us off of it. Attachment theory helps us understand why we are the way we are, and existential theory helps us make meaning of our life.
