Some people know that they are looking for a therapist for treatment of depression or anxiety or bipolar disorder. Others do not seek treatment for a specific diagnosis, but are aware that something needs to change.
If change was easy, you would have done it already! Change is very difficult to create and commit to maintaining. As your therapist, I create the safe space for you to explore what changes you want and how to bring those about.
I work with many people who want something more out of life. They’ve arrived at an impasse and are looking for assistance in moving beyond being stuck.
I understand the energy and courage it takes to find a therapist who is the right fit for you. It can be a complicated decision. Whether this is your first time seeking therapy, or looking for options as you return to your self-work, I will support your healing and change.
