At the core of one's emotional pain lies the need to truly know oneself and live a more authentic life. Who you are, what you want in life, and the ways in which you hold yourself back from your goals, aspirations, and desires are fundamentally important questions to understand as they are the pathway to a more fulfilling life. Through helping you to know yourself, you can overcome the struggles that brought you to therapy and have a more deeply connected relationship with yourself and others in your life. I believe in each person's innate ability to heal and grow. To be seen and known by another is profoundly healing.
