Nurture Your Emotional Health
Meet the Therapist
Stephanie Korpal, M.Ed., LPC
Owner & Therapist
I believe that everyone deserves a life free from feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and/or depressed on a daily basis. And even if those feelings aren’t present on a daily basis, but are present on a “more often than not” basis, I believe you deserve a better than that. Those feelings can rob you of so much energy, joy, and hope. They can take away your sense of purpose, social connection, and belief in a hopeful future. They can negatively impact your work performance, relationships, and can take away your potential to thrive. And that’s no place to live your life.
You deserve a life where you can feel joy when something exciting or well-deserved happens. You deserve to feel contentment on a pretty regular basis. A sense of control or influence should be yours when it comes to how your days and weeks unfold. A belief in your talents and skills, with the ability to be accountable about your weaknesses but not beholden to them, should be how the internal dialogue goes. And when stress, sadness, tragedy, or anything else of that sort happens, I want you to be able to believe in your ability to get through it; to navigate the hard times with a confidence in yourself, and knowledge about tools to ease the burden, if only just a bit.
When you work with me in the counseling process, I get to know the whole you—from your physical health habits to your support system to your daily tasks (and everything in between!) —so we can have the best opportunity of getting you to a place of feeling healthy and able. We reflect on patterns to build a better future. We talk about how your days and weeks flow and adjust micro-habits and incorporate bigger activities if that fits. I want to help you wake up each day confident in your ability to tackle any obstacles that may (and let's be honest: will!) arrive. And to feel less stressed when you're doing just that! And to also be in a place where all of those positive feelings-excitement, happiness, fulfillment-can easily flow into your daily experience.
Often, that involves changing some of your thought processes while also increasing your self-care habits and tools for emotional regulation. It involves learning more about yourself and being willing to show up to get the results. It isn’t something that happens overnight, but when the change does happen, it is something you can carry forward for the remainder of your life. That may seem like a lot to do, but that’s why I am with you—teaching, exploring, and keeping you accountable.
Counseling is not a process that is always easy, but it’s a process that is worthwhile. Because you are worthwhile. And if that is a belief you’re grappling with I can hold onto it for you until you are ready to hold onto it yourself.
