Thank you for considering me to assist you on your important journey. Sometimes things seem to go just right while at other times there is a sense of coming up short. Sometimes we face life achievements and experience disappointment in situations, others, and often ourselves that can seem overwhelming. We often enter therapy to regain or perhaps gain a better sense of ourselves as capable persons able to achieve the accommodations required for our own sense of a fulfilling life. And not many want a non-fulfilling life. We can often ask do these difficulties lay within me, the people I choose to exchange in loving relationships, or due directly to unexpected life circumstances. Unfortunately, these many issues cannot seem to be solved with the persons close to us due to various reasons. The privacy of therapy can facilitate open self-understanding. My therapy is private and confidential.
Aren’t we all so complex? I hope you would experience a sense of being understood and my ability to explore possibilities of new perspectives or resources. With self-reflection most can achieve even more insight often, involving an understanding of our pasts, that empowers one to act in new and refreshing ways or engage in those activities related to their newfound alternatives of mind and behavior. Psychotherapy has both benefits and risks. Risks may include experiencing uncomfortable feelings, such as sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness because psychotherapy often requires discussing the unpleasant aspects of your life. However, psychotherapy has been shown to have benefits for individuals who undertake it. Therapy often leads to a significant reduction in feelings of distress, increased satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, greater personal awareness and insight, increased skills for managing stress, and resolutions to specific problems.
