"People have questions about therapy or selecting a therapist: When is the right time? What can it help me with? How do I find the right therapist? From my perspective, therapy is a process where we can change our internal sense of self to enjoy and engage with the world more. We can alter beliefs about ourselves and world that may not work nor support us in becoming who we want to be. Therapy is like this: helping to move you to an awareness of all that you're capable of with the ability to tolerate feelings that arise in life."
