Life is stressful. Often times we live our lives in chains, we struggle with our fears, hopes and dreams. Fear is an inevitable challenge we face, particularly when it is unexpected. Sometimes, these challenges may become overwhelming and can affect us physically and mentally. Before we know it, we may start engaging in unhealthy coping behavior by turning to drugs drinking, or food, isolating from others, or acting out aggressively. It is time to find a solution rather than just temporary relief.

Past trauma may be negatively impacting your self-esteem or familial, work, peer, and/or romantic relationships. In our efforts to please others we can sometimes we lose touch with ourselves, or don't feel entitled to having our own needs met. You might be struggling with issues around identity and self-worth, or want to change unhealthy and frustrating patterns of communication. Boundary issues and a lack of self-care can leave you feeling depleted.

Therapy is an incubator for change. It's where you workshop how to initiate it, and digest the changes that have happened. As a therapist, I am 'issue agnostic' and willing to work with most challenges. What's important is your desire to create a change, and readiness to collaborate with someone to create it. Equally vital to me, as a therapist, is that you feel actively heard — something sorely missing for many of us. I feel that we need to be heard and our experience recognized, before we can move on to any sort of change.
