We all have within us the capacity to be our best selves and live fulfilling lives. We also carry with us our unique and complex combination of genetics, upbringing, and significant life experiences which impact how we interact with ourselves, others, and the world around us. Sometimes, even in our best efforts to get our needs met, attain happiness, and create satisfying connections with others, we find ourselves engaging in ineffective and counterproductive behaviors, leaving us feeling confused, stuck, frustrated and uncertain about the reasons for our behavior or how to make necessary changes. There is hope.This approach to therapy typically involves: increased awareness about your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and their underlying motivations; improved communication and conflict resolution skills; greater fulfillment in interpersonal relationships; transforming self-doubt and self-criticism into self-acceptance and self-confidence; and more effective ways of coping with difficult emotions.It takes strength and courage to be willing to look deeply at yourself and expose yourself to new ideas and behaviors. I believe it is my responsibility to meet your bravery with the compassion, support, and guidance you need in order to attain self-understanding and meaningful long lasting change.
