People seek out therapy for many reasons. Perhaps because of an event or situation that is painful and difficult to resolve or to find help and relief from longer term feelings of suffering that feel confusing and sometimes hopeless. We all develop ways of coping to avoid these hard emotions but sometimes our coping strategies can become problematic in themselves causing turmoil in oneself and in relationships. Therapy can provide a path to becoming aware of, and make changes to, how we relate to difficult feelings and develop new ways of coping. Therapy offers a place of safety with someone who comes to know you well. I work with individuals and offer a non-judgmental ear, a place to explore, and a collaborative approach involving observation, curiosity, and understanding. I look forward to working with you through this process.
