I am glad that you decided to take the first steps to seek help and healing. It takes courage to reach out!
The therapeutic process can be life changing as you gain a better understanding of yourself. Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors have a big impact on the quality of our day to day life. Through building a therapeutic relationship, I can help guide you through the journey of positive change which can be a very rewarding experience for you. I believe that it is important to create an environment that is free of judgment so that you can feel safe expressing yourself. The way we form our identity is complex, many roles play a factor including our environment, family of origin, current relationships and lifestyle. Through the journey of life, events both positive and painful help to mold us. Exploring grief, relationship dynamics, challenging responsibilities and exploring difficult adjustments can foster guided growth. The holistic approach can be key to creating a stronger, happier, healthier you.
