Most people benefit from having a trusted and trained professional to confide in and collaborate with - to make changes, deal with emotional pain, and search for understanding and meaning. Humans are complex beings and life is full of challenges. We all create "protective measures" to help us cope with difficulties we have encountered. Unconscious relational patterns, expectations, and beliefs about ourselves and others develop. Unfortunately, many of these ways of being interfere with creating satisfying lives and relationships. Our habituated patterns can be constricting, or lead to troubling behaviors or symptoms.
Therapy can help free you from what’s not working. You learn to be more curious, compassionate, and honest with yourself. Embracing the complexity of your mind and emotions expands your choices for how to live your life. It opens up more dimensions of yourself, valuable parts that are needed to create a more authentic and meaningful life.
Seeking professional help with something as vitally important as your mental and emotional well-being is a courageous and worthwhile endeavor. I welcome the opportunity to talk to you, and see if I can help you on your journey of self discovery, healing and personal growth.
