Life is hard. Perhaps you feel stuck or unhappy without knowing why. Maybe you are reading this because you have been impacted by difficulties in your life causing you pain right now. Even the most capable among us can face challenges that weigh on them, crippling their full capacity to live a vibrant life.
The paralyzing impact of relationship problems, loss, anxiety, depression, mind/body problems, learning or attention difficulties, self-defeating patterns, trauma and abuse frequently motivate people to enter therapy.
Emotionally difficult aspects of life are often avoided because they have been too painful or frightening. However, by facing them you can achieve symptom relief, a clear understanding of yourself, and liberate your full potential for life and relationships. Your ability to accept help when needed is the hallmark of inner strength. Knowledge is power, and knowledge about yourself forms the core of how you relate to others, cope, and make decisions in your life.
In therapy we will join forces as a team to face your pain and feelings from past and present conflicts. We will mindfully and in a sensitive, focused way work to help you overcome internal resistances to experiencing your feelings. We will uncover and unshackle your inner resources. We will then harness these powerful forces to transform what were once cauldrons of suffering and confusion into healing fountains that nourish your clarity and strength. Together we will relentlessly fight to defeat obstacles, to liberate your full potential to live an empowered life guided by your deepest values, to know yourself and to free your greatest capacity for intimacy and closeness.
