Entering therapy can be both exciting and daunting. It usually means that something in your life isn't working quite right. It is also a sign that you are ready for change and want to learn new skills to create a more balanced and meaningful life. My goal in therapy is to help you connect to your own inner wisdom and natural resilience.
All people have a natural tendency to move toward wholeness and healing, but at times need help discovering and changing what is getting in the way of this process. Sometimes the things we do to try and take care of ourselves paradoxically create even more problems, like trying to avoiding negative thoughts and painful feelings. These thoughts and feelings will often transform on their own when met with openness, compassion, and curiosity.
Working collaboratively, we can identify and build on your strengths as well as learn new ways of relating to your thoughts, feelings, and life circumstances that lead to increased self-acceptance, stability, hope, and authenticity.
