Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

What if you could make your life the way you want it to be? Would you like to overcome loneliness, self-doubt, anxiety, fear of failure, hopelessness, relationship difficulties? Many times our discontent in the present is tethered to traumatic events in our past. If you suffered trauma as a child or as an adult, chances are you have adapted and survived but you may not be currently thriving. The deeper the wounding, the more profound the negative impacts can be in your present life. The miracle of therapy offers you the power to rewrite your past and reprogram your future.

Recognizing the need to work on a problem demonstrates courage. Perhaps you are out of ideas for how to cope with a troubled marriage or a strained relationship with your child or teen. Maybe you are depressed or anxious and nothing you've tried has helped. You might have a vision of how you want life to change, but need a calm and supportive place to work out how to get there. In times like these, you want someone to understand you, help you remember your strengths, and offer some new options.

We all know that life is full of messiness, but what if we didn’t have to hold it together? What if we didn’t show a version of ourselves or wear a facade? What if we could be really honest about our experiences, thoughts, and feelings? Sometimes it’s hard to find places to allow our chaos, confusion and pain to come out of hiding and be seen. My hope is that you find comfort and safety to allow the mess to show up. I believe therapy offers us the invitation to do something different — to choose a new way. It can be an uncomfortable and powerful offer to be seen, known and heard for who you really are.

Taking care of our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health. My role in therapy is a coach, consultant and collaborator. It is important to build on your strengths because it enables you to change from a place of empowerment. As I see it, the goal of counseling is to gain insight through reflection, and to build concrete skills so that when future challenges arise, you are better prepared.

It is a really hard time in our world to be a kid or teen right now. It's also a really challenging time to be a parent or caregiver trying to figure out how to best help and support your child/teen (and yourself also!). We have all taken a deep dive into the unknown as we are trying to piece together some semblance of a "normal" life and routine for our families. I continue to see kids, teens, and their grownups frequently struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, and isolation. Families are also struggling to manage day to day healthy relationships living under the same roof more now than ever before.

There are many approaches to treating pain. Counseling deals primarily with common issues such as relationship problems, job stress or life changes. Psychotherapy goes into more depth and deals with specific symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive traits. The goal of psychotherapy is not to "fix" external problems, although that can be the result; rather, the purpose of psychotherapy is to understand the internal world of the client. Change and struggle are inevitable -- but as we come to know and accept ourselves, we begin to respond to change and struggle in ways that cause us less distress.
