Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing

Anticipating getting help might make you feel anxious. Sharing your feelings aloud can be uncomfortable. Trust that a good psychotherapist will put you at ease, rather than judge you. It is important for you to come into the office and meet me so that together we can decide whether we are a good fit. At that time you will know if you are comfortable proceeding.
Therapy is a gift you give yourself. It is a decision about wanting something different in your life. I believe in psychotherapy because I have seen it work to change people’s feelings about themselves and their lives. The journey is an investment you make in yourself and how you want to live your life. We live in a society that values “drive-through” remedies. If someone offers you a quick solution to a problem you have experienced over and over again in your life, it should raise a red flag for you. What you are experiencing is an indication that something from your past is interfering in your present life. Understanding this can bring you much relief. Therapy is about changing lifelong patterns that just aren’t working, and replacing them with ones that do.
Therapy is a collaborative process that is very different from reading a self help book or taking medication for a particular feeling, like depression. What is necessary is having a connection within a therapeutic relationship. Although the use of medication can be very helpful and sometimes needed, it does not replace the face to face emotional connection that another human being can offer when you are suffering. In fact, research has shown that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is what helps people to feel better. This experience, whether you are on medication or not, can deepen and enrich your life. Now, what could be more powerful than that?
