Tamoya Merrit, LMHC
You're a kind, loving person but you can go from 0 to 100, real quick. You're struggling with intense emotions like frustration, anger, and sadness without being able to control them. When you get mad you find yourself lashing out at those around you (your partner, your children, your coworkers), feeling unable to find the words express your feelings in a constructive way. You're feeling overwhelmed and helpless because you'd rather not act this way. It just feels like you can't help it. You're ready to learn how to gain control of your emotions so that you can lead a healthy, balanced life. I use a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) approach that combines mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal skills. You'll learn to recognize, accept, and mange emotions in the moment, rather than trying to push them away. I also help you improve communication at work, home, and most importantly, with your self. Making the decision to start therapy can be a difficult step, and perhaps the most rewarding one you take this year. If you're ready to experience as sense of balance, inner peace, and fulfillment in your relationships, reach out to me.
