Entering therapy is a courageous first step toward living the life you want to live—a step that will benefit you, your family, and loved ones for years to come.
If you are seeking therapy because you are struggling with a crisis, feel stuck with emotional pain, or are confronted by seemingly unending conflict at home, work, or school, you are not alone. As others have found, therapy can help you work through these and other issues in a journey toward resolution, relief, and restoration.
But therapy is much more than just "fixing" a problem. Therapy is a collaborative process and an enriching path toward profound self-discovery in the context of everyday life. As therapy helps you become more connected to and aware of yourself—your fears, your desires, your patterns, your sense of humor—you will discover a serene power that enables you to choose how you want to live, even when crises do arise.
Therapy can be hard work, it’s true. But it doesn’t have to feel daunting or intimidating. I don’t believe that therapy is about digging up the past and analyzing it to death. Rather, my work focuses on your present experiences, while bringing in relevant aspects of your history to help illuminate the themes, desires, and patterns that show up in your life right now.
