Are you feeling depressed, anxious, or just plain "stuck?" Do you feel like you've tried everything, but life still feels unsatisfying? In today's busy world, we often do not have the time or the mental space to step back and evaluate ourselves and our lives, what is working and what is not. Psychotherapy with a caring professional can allow you to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings in a private setting, separate from your day-to-day world. Through these discussions, you can begin to know yourself in a deeper way, allowing for new perspectives and solutions.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

As a therapist, my job is not to tell you what to do, but rather, to help you determine what gets in the way of you creating the life that you want. It is not only our external circumstances that interfere with our happiness. Often times, we feel stuck in the same patterns of unhappiness or the same frustrating relationship patterns. We may consciously make an effort to change these patterns, but the conflicts in our own minds keep us stuck. We may be unable to see the choices we have. We sometimes have self-defeating beliefs that are not obvious on the surface. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to explore thought patterns that may keep you from finding more life satisfaction. As these thoughts are untangled through therapy, a new freedom becomes available.

People come into therapy looking to alleviate suffering (e.g., depression, anxiety, stress), but psychotherapy offers an opportunity to move beyond this initial goal. Psychotherapy offers a person the opportunity to know oneself on a deeper level, which allows for better relationships, improved self-esteem, and an overall increased satisfaction with one's life.
