"Everyone feels anxious depressed or upset, sometimes. We think about psychotherapy when we are feeling bad too much of the time. Maybe relationships aren't working, or you are dealing with loss. Maybe you haven't achieved what you wanted, or there are things about yourself you want to change. You want it to be different, but it hasn't happened yet. Therapy helps you change the things that keep you from being who you want to be, and getting what you need. I work with adults, both individuals and couples."
