It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

The process of exploring ourselves could be full of surprises - yet the connections in the therapy room create safety, empowerment and strength.It is not about how the therapist helps you, it is about how you can help yourself along with the insight, reliance and empathy that is already in you.

These very challenges, however, help us grow, develop a greater awareness of ourselves and others, and empower us to make good choices.

Life is like a book - some chapters are more emotional than others while others are more challenging to get through. Different life events or situations can cause shorter or longer chapters. And for working professionals, it seems like the everyday routine is one long overwhelming book.
