In our busy lives, we often overlook and even forget our own needs and wants. Over time this leads to feelings of exhaustion, pain, deprivation, scarcity, sadness, anger, loneliness and more. Psychotherapy is time set apart in order to slow down and check-in with yourself and your life. This process helps you to have a better understanding of your thoughts, feelings, sensations, desires, physical body and spiritual experiences, which ultimately empowers the ability to direct your life with healthy decision-making.
In my practice, clients are encouraged to be in the present moment (mindfulness) with as much non-judgement and curiosity as is possible. This takes practice and patience and builds internal resilience.
Working creatively and therapeutically can relieve symptoms related to anxiety and stress. Individual therapy is a collaborative space. Using my clinical and creative eye, I support clients as they achieve their personal goals, as well as greater peace, satisfaction and relief.
A couple or two-individuals coming to therapy together may include those in a romantic relationship, as well as two friends, family members, co-workers, etc.
Therapy can help with:
Relief from uncomfortable symptoms
A stronger sense of self
More effective communication style
A felt sense of support and care
More effective problem solving and coping
Changes that lead to greater wellness
Increased experiences of connection and sharing
