Announcement icon I am seeing clients in person and online. Relying upon clients to self-assess exposure they may have had outside of sessions.
(Currently I have very limited availability - accepting clients who can meet weekly day times, with no evening availability.) Entering therapy can be a daunting decision. What can I tell you that might make this step easier? Every person's therapy is unique. It will follow your life, both past and present. Primarily, therapy will be a safe space where every worry or concern you have will be acceptable for discussion and analysis. It may frequently be difficult, but there will also be joy and freedom. And I can assure you that 'the talking cure' can bring about deep and long-lasting change in your life.
I work from a psychodynamic framework. I believe none of us is just one person, but rather a dynamic mix of all the life experiences that have brought us this far. Sometimes those different histories conflict with each other and slow our progress through life.
As we grow up, we all must make compromises with our family, friends and community. Compromises we make in early childhood, can especially alienate us from our true selves, and cause us to believe we are very different people than the version of ourselves that will bring us fully alive.
