Message to clients

Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper sense of understanding and fulfillment in your life. By exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviors you will begin to develop more self-awareness and self-acceptance. We often find ourselves feeling stuck, unmotivated, anxious or depressed. Therapy provides an opportunity to gain insight, heal from past wounds and work towards your goals in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse

Depression - Providing support and promoting healing of hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and loss of interest and pleasure in life

Life transitions - Coping with difficult or impactful life changes, such as moving to a new area, relationship transitions, child rearing, or career changes; learning self-care to better manage resulting stress
