Individual Therapy

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love & affection. —Buddha

Between everyday stresses, jobs, personal relationships, family, etc. life can get pretty busy! It can be difficult to find time for yourself and attend to your own needs. But just as you would want to check your own air mask, prior to helping another passenger, it is necessary to find the time to care for yourself in order to be your best in all aspects of your life. 

Individual Therapy is the perfect time for this self-exploration and personal growth. Maybe you are struggling with a difficult life transition, feeling stuck in the past and unable to move forward from a painful memory or previous hurt; maybe you feel you are at a crossroads in some way and don’t know which way to go. Do you need someone to confide in? Are you ready to take control of your life and discover new solutions and coping strategies? Then why not start now?

As a therapist, I view my role as a guide. I will walk alongside you, encouraging and empowering you, while pointing out both the beautiful scenery and potential hazards you may encounter on your journey of change. I look forward to getting to know you and walking with you every step of the way as you explore and decide what path you wish to take.

"Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down."   – Eleanor Roosevelt
