Change happens when we let it.
Emotions and feelings can be bottled up...
No breathing room... Nowhere to go...
As time moves on, the desire and need to grow and spread our wings evolves within ourselves
to endless opportunities...
Therapy is a challenging process. If you are reading this page your curiosity and possibility of a therapeutic process is within arms reach. Therapy can be a daunting process with its challenges and commitments. Individuals have a belief-system that is their own and unique to whom they are. Changing a belief system is not easy nor is it expected. However, having the opportunity to understand one’s belief system, life experience and choices an individual makes can strengthen an understanding of “who you are.” Understanding “self” is a critical component in making change and working towards creating a satisfying relationship with yourself and others in your life.
Starting therapy is challenging. We truly believe that the only obstacle to overcoming challenges in life is a commitment to yourself to reach your goals, no matter how difficult or distant they might be. You may come to me with a very serious challenge that takes time to address or your challenge may be resolved in only a few sessions. Together, we will determine which path is best for you and work towards achieving your goals.
“We shall not cease from explorationAnd the end of all our exploringWill be to arrive where we startedAnd know the place for the first time.”
~T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
