"Life has many challenges, it's how you grow from your past that defines who you are in life. You may feel alone, misunderstood, and unfulfilled with your life or personal relationships. Perhaps you're having intense negative emotions. People typically enter therapy when they are in distress, although it's usually the long-term and underlying struggles that concern them the most. Initially, we will work quickly to address your immediate pain and provide relief. As therapy progresses, our focus may shift so you develop more positive and enriching relationships with yourself and others. "

"What if at the end of your therapy session, you felt good, you felt empowered and felt that you had a sense of direction? Counseling helps in various ways to work through the unspeakable events or emotions in a person's life. Clients are encouraged to create tangible goals for themselves to work on between sessions, which helps to create coping skills and a continuity of healing/treatment outside of their sessions. Clients also have the option to participate in more expressive forms of therapy, including the use of art materials."
