To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? Do I need therapy? Are my problems and experiences important enough for therapy? What is the therapist going to think about me? Initiating therapy can be a difficult process. Understanding this, I strive to make everyone feel safe and comfortable in my office setting. I have worked hard to ensure that individuals feel at ease when exploring their past and present experiences.

Most of us have never been taught how to build great relationships, raise children, or to be content and find meaning; these issues tend to cause us a great deal of stress. Stress is a major cause of anxiety and behaviors that you want to change. However, you have the building blocks within you to put together great relationships, raise children, and have a meaningful flourishing life. Sometimes the building blocks you already have get jumbled and need to be adjusted. Errors in thinking lead us to feel bad and spiral downward or become anxious or depressed.

Beginning psychotherapy is a very significant step in a person's life. I understand, and very much appreciate the trust that needs to be built to share thoughts, experiences, and pain that have brought you to this point. I also understand how difficult it is to share these kinds of things with someone you don't know. I realize that trust and this process takes time, and I believe and respect that the patient knows when they are ready to reveal and talk about their experiences and their emotions. I commit to providing you with a safe environment where you will feel comfortable to share and to achieve your treatment goals.
