Therapy is hard to describe in a few short words. It is a process in which you will receive support, non-judgmental acceptance and the opportunity to explore your innermost thoughts and fears. It is also a process through which you will gain insight and awareness of the things that could be contributing to how you feel.
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some common concerns I hear are…
“I’m having really bad depression.”
“My anxiety attacks are getting worse.”
“I started crying at work today and I have no idea why.”
“My wife says I have an anger problem and I need help.”
“I want to feel better, but I don’t want to take medication.”
“I don’t feel like myself lately.”
Individual therapy sessions are one-on-one sessions during which we explore your presenting concerns, collaborate on goals and work on alleviating your symptoms while building on resources and strengths. I am a client-centered therapist and operate from a Humanistic approach – which basically means that I work with you where you want to start, at the issues you want to start with and use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and insight-oriented interventions to guide us in finding solutions that work for you.
If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or dealing with an issue on your own and the things you have tried to feel better are not working, this may be the single most important thing you do for yourself.
Have the courage to let go of the things dragging you down.
Talking to a caring and supportive professional can help because you will not be judged, told what to do or told that “it’s not a big deal, other people have it worse.” The pain you are experiencing is very real. Together we will figure out what is behind it and what will help to get you to start feeling better.
