"There are times in life where we feel stuck and unable to move to where we desire to be. Therapy seeks to intervene at that “stuck” place. During our time together, we can discover patterns in your relationships, thoughts, and actions. Patterns that, while they may have served a purpose in the past, may no longer be beneficial.
