You may be seeking therapy because you would like to feel better, need help handling a difficult situation, want to make a change in your life, solve a problem or heal from a painful experience. Therapy can be a place to resolve concerns, learn new skills and integrate life experiences. In therapy you can be understood, break free from old habits and grow in new directions.
Real change happens when you are able to look at yourself honestly and openly. Therapy offers you a genuine reflection of who you are and where you are stuck. This awareness creates an opportunity to make choices about how you want to live your life. When you operate without awareness of thought, emotion and behavior patterns, you have very little control and habitual patterns can rule your life. These habitual patterns can be transformed in therapy, which leads to real, tangible results in the way you feel and lead your life.
Ultimately, the “answer” to your concerns will be discovered by you. As your therapist, I am there to listen, understand and offer new perspectives. This can help you gain insight, reframe problems and learn new ways to cope with life’s challenges. I will be there along the way to support you through obstacles and to recognize your healing and growth.
How does it work?
Therapy will help you in your ability to cope with life’s difficulties and relate to others. You are not alone in feeling the way you do and you have the ability to overcome what you are going through. Therapy can help with increased confidence, self-esteem and self awareness. By applying the knowledge and skills gained in therapy, you will be able to lead a more fulfilling, enriching and joyful life.
