Life is harder than expected at times. Transitions, loss, trauma, persistent anxiety or depression, or a feeling that things will never change are just a few examples of the ways in which people can feel less hopeful about their lives. Psychotherapy is a tool that can alleviate the stressors of everyday life, improve one's sense of well being and connection with others and enhance one's self understanding. Over time it can also lead to a greater sense of competency and satisfaction in the world.
An honest dialog at your pace will help us understand and address things that feel complicated or difficult in your life. I believe in order to benefit from therapy, one needs to feel understood, comfortable and safe in a therapeutic relationship.
Though challenging at times, a positive therapeutic relationship can lead to a greater sense of freedom and fulfillment both professionally and personally. Choosing a therapist is an important decision. Please feel free to contact by phone. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the process or my approach.
