Individual Therapy

While many people can recover from trauma or large stressors over time with the love and support of family and/or friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover lasting negative effects. These lasting effects can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, decline in physical health, stifled personal and professional growth, and/or limited ability to form or maintain relationships, far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing. I am here to begin that journey with you.

What is therapy?

Therapy is a treatment intended to heal or relieve problematic behaviors, or relational ruptures. Therapy is a place for you to explore pain, struggles, stressors, and ruptures you may have or are currently experiencing in the presence of an attuned, connected, and regulated therapist.

How is talking to you different than talking to my friends or family?

The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, and you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
