People choose to work with a therapist for many important reasons. You may find that you are feeling overwhelmed by your current situation or distracted by events of the past. You may be having difficulty meeting your goals, sustaining change or managing your behavior. You may be dissatisfied with personal or work relationships or, perhaps, others are dissatisfied with you. You may be looking for support on your own journey of self-exploration. Therapy offers you an opportunity to re-gain your balance, relieve stress, get support for meeting your goals and building good relationships with others, and gain insight.
