People often come to therapy to address:
• Anxiety and Depression
• Relationship Problems
• Sexual Health & Satisfaction
• Grief & Loss
• Work & Career issues
• Stress Management
• Addiction & Recovery
One part of therapy is having another person there with you, to help with whatever emotions and thoughts you’re having. In therapy, you have someone in your corner who helps you move forward.
Another part is that we, as therapists, have expertise and training in how to help you work with your emotions, thoughts, and your entire self. Whether with sadness, anger, anxiety, shame, or whatever feeling – wherever you are, that’s where therapy starts.
We want to hear what these feelings have to “say,” so to speak, and what we can do to lessen the pain.
These stages might go in order, but usually, the path is more circuitous.
Exploration – You get the time to tell your story. With guiding questions and total support, we explore where you’ve been and what the problems are now. We look at your story through a lens of self-compassion and acceptance.
Understanding – We work with you to make sense of your story. Everyone’s life has a meaning. Finding the meaning in your story can be powerful and shed light on why your problems are there.
Change – Telling your story and making sense of it is important, but it’s not usually enough. We work with you to change the old ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving, so the burden is lighter.
We'll get back to you as soon as possible, usually within one business day.
