Therapy is a powerful tool that can foster self awareness, insight and relief from anxiety and depression. Making the decision to seek guidance is the first step towards meeting your goals and limiting behavior that may be sabotaging your success. I feel it's important to create a rich understanding of past experiences and current choices so that patterns can be illuminated, identified and brought to Iight. I find that when one becomes aware of these patterns, they develop the power and confidence to move forward.

Do you have anxiety and find yourself worrying all the time? Do your relationships suffer because you worry? Worrying affects your mind and body. It often involves nervousness, panic, fear, obsessive-compulsiveness, and embarrassment or worse, shame. Whether you have one of these experiences or all of them, worry disconnects you from loved ones. This leads to sadness or depression. You don't have to be alone with your worry (or sadness). Engaging in treatment is a difficult decision, but your commitment will be the first step toward releasing the emotions that stand in the way of you feeling safe, calm, confident and connected.
