My Approach to Helping
I believe that each of us has the strengths and resources to solve our own problems. Therapy is the process of exploring your inner world so that together, we can harness those resources for personal growth. There is a good reason you are seeking therapy at this time. Your anxiety, sadness, anger, or frustration may be a sign that something needs attention. You may feel worried much of the time, and wonder if this is normal. You may be struggling in your most important relationships, and wonder if there is anything you can do to improve things. I'm here to tell you there is a lot you can do, and there is hope. Call me for a free consultation to see if we might be a good fit for the work you would like to do.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
When you have something on your mind, it can help to talk to a trusted friend or a relative. However, sometimes this only makes things more complicated. Psychotherapy offers a different experience. You have an hour with a trained professional, who offers hisher undivided attention, and will provide reflections and feedback. A skilled psychotherapist knows the important questions to ask. These questions may be challenging, but they may lead to greater levels of self awareness.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
It is an honor and a privilege to be present with people as they are in the thick of life's challenges. Every situation is unique, as is every treatment plan. I learn from clients as they learn from me. I enjoy the dynamic nature of therapy, and I appreciate that as each client grows, I grow and learn too. To me there could be no better job!
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
If you are not sure therapy is for you, I can understand that. I encourage you to meet for one session so we can discuss what may be possible. This will probably dispel any myths you have believed in the past about therapy being a mysterious process. It is not. It is about exploring the many dimensions of your personality, life, and relationships, within the context of the relationship with another person-the therapist.
