"Life can be hard and many of us feel out of control or alone. I believe we are meant to have connections with others in order to create bonds that provide the framework of how we interpret the world around us as well as our own sense of self. When crisis and conflict occur, and these relationships are challenged, life can seem impossible-but this is where interpersonal growth can occur. No matter what the issue, finding the desire and courage to overcome these challenges is a personal and important decision. Choosing the therapist who is the right fit for you is the next step."

"It can feel difficult to decide if now is the right time to start therapy (again?!). Ambivalence is normal. Exploring that uncertainty can be a great place to begin. It could mean that you feel stuck, or have a sense that something is not quite right and you are interested in making it better. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often a result of loss, grief, life transitions, relationship stress, traumas, or identity discovery to name a few. Exploring your experience can help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Gaining understanding lets you tap into your own wisdom and strengths, making change possible."
