Do you feel that you are not living your life the way you hoped you would? Are you worried or stressed out? Are you engaged in a constant battle with anxiety or negative, unwanted, intimidating, or embarrassing intrusive thoughts? Are you trying to avoid triggers like places, people, events, or thoughts? Do you feel that you are "putting out fires" instead of dealing with the core issues? Would you like to overcome the obstacles that prevent you from enjoying every day of your life? Maybe you already tried therapy and it didn't work. Yet, you can learn to go through life without such a struggle. We can help you get there.
Welcome. Working with a therapist provides the opportunity to explore the things that truly matter to you. Through uncovering the stumbling blocks and triggers that prevent you from being the best version of yourself, we will collaborate together to create self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance - while determining new avenues to accomplish tangible goals that align with your values. Giving consideration to the 'whole' you is an integral part of the therapeutic process – including those aspects that are painful and deeply imbedded, as well as your strengths, resources and aspirations.
