There is a misconception that therapy is unidirectional, a place to seek advice or vent to a therapist. It is important for the client to be informed, valued, and understood by the therapist. Although therapy is not a, “quick fix” I have been told by many clients that they feel some improvement after the first 1-2 sessions. Usually, they report this shift as a sense of relief that they have finally made the first step to talk to someone. Clients describe how having an understanding and a template to approach their issues was crucial to regaining control in their lives.

Feeling isolated, confused, overwhelmed, and not knowing where to go from here? You are not alone! Life is full of uncertainty, changes, losses, gains, and growth. Some are expected, some are not. Therapy can help you give voice to your own narratives, make sense of experiences, better understand and embrace who you are, and empower yourself for meaningful changes. This is a journey to enhance relationship with self and others, to extend the sense of safety and belonging, to know the art of accepting and forgiving, to be in touch with resiliency, to move toward self-compassion, and to have the courage of fully being and thriving.

Are you experiencing a transition in your life--in a relationship, career, education, or life stage such as early adulthood or midlife? Are you overwhelmed and uncertain, feeling depressed, anxious, grief-stricken, resentful, conflicted, or confused? Change of all types stirs up unsettling feelings, including unresolved issues, memories and traumas. You might feel like you're always in "crisis-mode." When your feelings overwhelm you, they cloud your judgment and vision. Rather than being at their mercy, you can learn to allow your feelings to guide you, no matter how difficult the challenges you face.
