Change is hard. For some of us it is simply a need to explore a specific issue, job change, relationship exploration, or a goal for our future. For others, long held negative thoughts/ beliefs, anxiety and depression can paralyze moving forward, leaving us floundering for years. Regardless, change is possible. It is your turn, there is hope.

From the outside things look like they are going well, but inside you feel stuck and want to shut yourself off from the world. Maybe life seems to have sped up due to the demands of family, work or school. This is far too common and can be emotionally and physically debilitating. Somehow, we end up in our own way and things become overwhelming. The good news is we can also get out of our way. You have already taken an important first step and are considering psychotherapy. Now, imagine yourself being inspired, better able to cope and capable of embracing all that life has to offer. This is where I will help.
