Would you like support to achieve any of the following goals with OVERTHINKING?

Although thinking can be productive, it is common to get caught in a loop of overthinking at times where you cannot turn off internal self-talk. Compulsive thinking can interfere with your ability to relax and focus your attention. Overthinking can take different forms including negative perceptions, the inability to concentrate, or anxiety without knowing how to stop thinking. Sleep, interpersonal communication, and physical health may all be adversely affected by nonstop rumination.
Overthinking may be an old habit or a response to a crisis, life situation, or unknown cause. Regardless of the reason, it is possible to let go of obsessively thinking. Counseling can help by showing you methods to reduce unwanted thoughts and its affects including emotional stress, physical discomfort, or mental agitation.
My approach is informed by providing therapy in college counseling centers and private practice since 2006 to help clients learn to think more clearly and productively. Using evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness counseling, I can show you how to reduce non-supportive thinking to become more fully present and use your mind in more rewarding ways.
I will show you straightforward techniques that can be immediately applied to improve your ability to be at ease and think constructively. You will become skilled with practices to help with current concerns as well as challenges that arise in the future.
