Who am I?
Why do I think and feel the way I do?
How can I improve my outlook on my life, and my relationships with others? How can I possibly find relief from my trauma, my depression, my anxiety, or my obsessions?
These are questions many individuals ask themselves before starting psychotherapy.
My aim is to provide an accepting space where you can explore your fears, desires, and even your confusion, with someone who will listen carefully and respond empathetically.
Together, we can identify ways to better cope with the demands of your life, determine the changes you want to make and how to make them, and find acceptance for the things we are unable to change.
