"Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!"

"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."

It is at these times that therapy may be especially helpful. Therapy can assist you in better understanding yourself and the challenges you are facing.
