It can be challenging to struggle with sadness, stress, conflict, or dissatisfaction. In therapy, we can work together through these feelings, as well as through relationship issues, life transitions, family conflict, questions of identity and purpose, or an overall feeling of being stuck in life, and toward greater clarity and fulfillment.
Sometimes, we find that patterns of thought or behavior that may have supported us through difficult situations in the past are no longer serving us. Therapy can also be a tool to reveal these cycles and to help us break out of them by forging new ways of being.
I aim to create a space where you feel safe and free to explore these issues. I will support you in building on your strengths, clarifying and pursuing inner values, desires, and goals, and fostering insight and resilience to help you work through challenges and create lasting change.
My approach is primarily psychodynamic, which encourages introspection, honesty, and curiosity about how you think, feel, and relate to yourself and to others. Given that early experiences and relationships can have lasting effects, this may involve bringing your past into our conversations to help illuminate your present. Together, we’ll pay attention to what comes up on the surface as well as what lies beneath. I believe that your perspective, experiences, and circumstances are unique to you and that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all fix.
Please reach out if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation before scheduling a session.
