Welcome to therapy

This is one of the most important decisions you've made for yourself or your child. It is a privilege for me to work with you and your loved ones. Thank you in advance! In this journey we will walk together, ponder upon things & look at issues of concern that are keeping you or your loved ones from enjoying a better quality of life. Know that therapy is a fluid process, even when it seems stand still or that perhaps we've reached a plateau. It may be uncomfortable at times. But know that, it is during those times, that growth or change can happen. Therapy & healing takes time. Slowing down to see the issues for what they are, contemplating on what you need and what no longer serves a purpose in your life. Taking our time to process things from the past or the present that are keeping you stuck takes time but it's also this very process that can help you move forward. This is perhaps a time to just be, to rediscover your strengths and or add some additional tools to enhance your healthier self. This is your time, your process. I am here to partner up with you in this collaborative process called talk therapy. One step at a time. One day at a time.
