By providing a caring, trusting, and dedicated attentiveness to you and thinking together, it's possible to heal and grow. At some point we eventually discover we've developed behaviors that were once adaptive or self-protective, but no longer serve us, or that we are in relationships that bring emotional strain. Whether it's anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or simply feeling you are not living the life you had imagined, it's suffering that brings us to therapy. Many of us feel alone with our suffering and haven't been taught how to address it. I find that a compassionate focus on the parts of us that suffer brings meaningful change. Taking the first step to reach out for therapy can be quite anxiety-provoking. There are many forces in ourselves, in our families, and in our culture, that might stop us from reaching out for help. I approach therapy from a Jungian and relational perspective, and I have a welcoming, collaborative, and introspective style. I would encourage you to listen to your gut if you feel you need therapy and feel that we could be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you.
