Starting the search for a therapist can be an overwhelming process. You may feel like you don’t know what will make someone the ‘right fit’ for you. Therapy isn’t magic, nor is it instant gratification. However, it does work wonders when you find someone that can meet you where you are at this moment in time and provide a comfortable space for you to explore your needs. My goal as a therapist is to do just that. I work with my clients where they are to determine what stressors are affecting your day to day life, gain insight into the root causes and establish tools to help manage them.
