For most the decision to enter counseling comes at a time of great personal turmoil and stress. If this describes your current state, I'm really glad you are here. I invite you to read the information I have provided on my website and reach out to me should any questions arise for you.
In my experience, there is a wide variety of reasons people seek out psychotherapy. Many people struggle to move through certain moods, thoughts or anxieties. Often they sense that their mental and emotional states effect their relationships and/or their ability to be productive at work and home life. It is usually an incredibly lonely place to be, and extremely difficult to tolerate. Others are adjusting to a recent disruption or trauma in their lives such as the death of a loved one, or the end of a significant relationship. There are also those people who come to counseling not out of crisis, but a sense of curiosity in their unique nature. They seek treatment as a gift they offer themselves-- a way "to know thyself" (if you will) in deeper and more intimate ways.
I view psychotherapy as a highly supportive process that utilizes equal parts discovery and change. It offers the opportunity to look inward and notice in revelatory ways how you think, feel and behave in your everyday life. These discoveries allow us to design strategies for change that are specialized and lasting. Over time, therapy can fundamentally heal any variety of heartbreak and significantly increase feelings of self worth.
