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.
How does it work?
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.
What are the benefits?
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.
It is my intention to create a safe and inclusive space for everyone, regardless of their background, identity, or life experiences. I want you to know that you are welcomed and embraced here, just as you are. Diversity goes beyond race and ethnicity; it encompasses a broad spectrum of identities, including gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion, socioeconomic status, and more. By recognizing and appreciating the richness of these differences, true healing and personal growth can take root.
All are welcome
