"One of the early questions I ask a new client is, "where are you hoping this relationship will take you?". For some, the answer to this question is clear. They imagine a life where their anxiety or depressive symptoms no longer get in the way of attending school or work, spending time with friends and enjoying their days. Others hope for a time when they feel physically and emotionally well enough to enjoy each day. Many people struggle with a vision for their future. Often, the path behind us is full of wrong turns or the path ahead feels full of obstacles. Regardless of where you are, I will join with you and support your journey."
