I look forward to meeting you and helping you to reach your therapy goals.
Psychotherapy begins with an initial appointment where you identify the concerns that bring you to therapy and the goals, wishes and outcomes you would like to see from our time together. My role as therapist is to help you know yourself more fully and create more options for day to day living. This expansion of the way you view yourself and those around you allows you to:
- Attain peace and acceptance of the painful emotions you experience
- Represent yourself more clearly to family members, friends, colleagues
- Identify your thoughts and modify them so they work for you instead of against you
- Build trust in yourself—allowing you to be a proactive “Take Action” person rather than a reactive person
“What is important to you?”
When you pause and ask yourself that question, it helps you slow down and be in the present, to be caring and respectful of yourself. When you identify and are clear with yourself about what is important to you, it is easier to decide what you want others to know about you and how to adjust your perspective of your relationship with them.
My focus is on helping you to identify, set and achieve specific goals you set for yourself that will help you along this path.
