It takes courage to search for help during difficult times and transitions. Improving the quality of your life and relationships is an important and worthwhile endeavor. Approaching a crisis can even be an opportunity to awaken change and find perspective in ways we may not ordinarily invite in our everyday lives.
Reaching out for therapy can often be a new yet frightening step to take in one’s life. It is difficult to know what to expect from the experience, from your therapist and yourself. You will be treated with compassion, empathy, and professionalism as you embark upon this process of seeking help.
Your therapy will be based upon a relationship built on trust, respect, and collaboration. We will identify the difficult parts of your life contributing to the stuck places in which you may feel entangled. Part of this process will involve helping you build and strengthen relationships so you won’t feel so alone in this human journey we all share. Giving voice to your own thoughts, feelings, ideas, needs, and hopes may help you to develop effective strategies in your relationships and life. If you are seeking greater intimacy in your friendships and love relationships, we will work together to help you achieve your goals. We can address difficulties you may feel socially, and in your relationships with your co-workers/boss, partner/spouse, children, parents, and other family members. Struggles with depression, anxiety, and stress can be a reason to seek out therapy to find greater peace and purpose. You will be supported through difficult times of grief, loss, or health challenges, and will know that you have an ally to help you cope. Know that you will have an active listener to help you find and mobilize your inner strength and resources to seek solutions and learn positive ways to engage in, connect with, and enhance your life, health, work, and relationships.
You will be offered a variety of approaches to meet your goals, including holistic or integrative psychotherapy to help you find greater balance. People of all ages will be offered the opportunity to heal naturally from depression with choices of non-pharmacological treatment modalities or complementary therapies to those who find assistance from medication to be useful. Young people (10 year olds through high school) and their families, young adults, college students, and adults through their 80′s will safely navigate difficult transitions in their lives with the assistance of a professional guide and comforting presence to ease the pain and discomfort of this challenging journey towards greater well-being. Finding humor to lighten the struggle in the darkest of times may be part of the shared counseling experience. Rebalancing oneself to make room for greater joy and laughter will be part of the path towards wellness, creativity, and health.
