To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? Do I need therapy? Are my problems and experiences important enough for therapy? What is the therapist going to think about me? Initiating therapy can be a difficult process. Understanding this, I strive to make everyone feel safe and comfortable in my office setting. I have worked hard to ensure that individuals feel at ease when exploring their past and present experiences.

Maybe you feel like an imposter, barely holding it together on the inside. Or maybe things have already fallen apart despite your best efforts. Why continue to struggle alone? Life is hard enough, but for some people it’s even harder because of depression, anxiety, trauma, or chronic illness. Maybe you think you don’t even have a good reason for feeling as you do. This is common and understandable. Don't let it stop you from taking action to feel better. You don't need an "excuse" to come to therapy.
