Considering Therapy?

Life’s challenges can feel dark, heavy, or even impossible to deal with.

Many people who start therapy feel like they are going round in circles, repeating negative emotions or habits. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you check things off of your to-do list, but you don’t feel like you’re getting anything done or you’re noticing that you complain a lot about feeling stressed, tired, and unfulfilled and are aware that it is impacting your ability to feel connection and lead a meaningful life.

Stuck in negativity and feeling worried all the time, you may feel like life is spent constantly feeling “on edge”.

Do You Feel Insecure, Stressed, Ashamed?

Do any of the following resonate with you?

  • You feel lonely, even when you are with others.
  • You feel dread, fear, uncomfortable thoughts, and a pounding heart stuck in the loop of doubt and uncertainty.
  • You are grieving or feel sadness you cannot fully express or work through alone.
  • You worry about the impact of big emotional reactions on your career, education, or the important relationships.
  • You feel like you are wandering through life, feeling like something is missing or your balance is “off.” Maybe small changes are hard for you.
  • You feel like there are so many things to manage and your forever growing “to do list” leaves you feeling completely overwhelming, yet it is hard to take breaks or let a task go.
  • You want approval or comfort, but it feels hard to accept when offered.
  • You are aware that the relationship you have with food or your body is taking over other areas of life that you care about.
  • You frequently experience aches pains or other medically unexplained symptoms that distract you from your life.
  • You get stuck in your head about big life concepts and all the “what if” scenarios they may bring up.

If these sound true for you, I want you to know that you are not alone.

In therapy you will be accepted with all of your feelings and thoughts no matter how big or uncomfortable or how you feel about the fact that they are there.

Society often teaches us to feel shame about our internal experiences, causing us to try to block or fight them, which in turn keeps us stuck. I will help you undo those beliefs and find a greater sense of peace with your thoughts and emotions that will decrease their intensity. My role is to actively support you in learning ways to cope and understand what is going on, overcome past traumas or thought patterns exacerbating symptoms, and build real believable self-compassion needed to truly allow passing emotions without being over-taken by them. We can explore your unique direction and values together and gradually work on life changes that will bring you closer to the life you envision.

It is not selfish to prioritize caring for yourself. You don’t have to always put work or your family’s needs over your own needs. What if taking care of yourself in this way could move all the parts of your life that you care about into a stronger more aligned space? You are worth the investment.

Therapy Can Help You Feel Like Your Real Self Again

  • Have improved attitude, mood, and productivity.
  • Figure out who you are and what direction to go in next.
  • Improve your relationship with yourself and those you choose to share yourself with.
  • Spend more of your energy and thoughts on the parts of your life that you value and bring you a sense of fulfillment.
  • Develop confidence to meet your own needs and ask for support when you need it.
  • Stop letting anxiety affect the way you live or make any decisions for you.
  • Get to the root problems and solve those instead of using band-aids.

Therapy helps you rise above your challenges and start moving towards your ideal life with less confusion and more confidence.

You will find the fresh perspective you need to navigate your way through difficult feelings and situations and see that you deserve kindness and forgiveness – the same way that you give that to the people you care about.

Even if you are not sure if your problem is serious enough, therapy may be able to help. If you are feeling interested in finding support, chances are your intuition is right and it probably would make a difference. My clients often discover that it’s possible to be productive without living life and doing work at a frenzied pace. It is possible to feel and do the hard things and cope in an unpredictable world. Even to feel life moving forward in a good way.

My name is Jana Crosby. I am a therapist and anxiety specialist and am here to help.

Navigate Life’s Challenges with Ease

How Therapy Works

Therapy consists of 50-minute, one-on-one sessions that help you work through your concerns. They are generally provided on a weekly basis with some flexibility or variance. In addition to listening and providing a warm accepting space, I will ask questions and share thoughts when it’s helpful. I play an active role in the therapy process with your goals in mind.

Research shows that therapy can positively change your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors without changing the core of what makes you, you. It can help you let go of what’s holding you back.
