We all have deep yearnings for connection, closeness, empathy, and growth. The human condition is such that many of these needs are frustrated, either in childhood or in our adult relationships and workplaces. We often find a discrepancy between our ideal selves and our real selves. We experience conflicts between what we want to do and what we feel we should do. Often times, these incongruities lead us to feel lost, deprived, and confused.
Many people endure these hardships, living a life of struggle and pain. Others open themselves up to the possibility of transformation and restoration. Therapy opens the door to this new path. It is a journey towards greater satisfaction, more enriching relationships, and a fuller sense of the self. Current research shows that, with some effort the brain, and therefore our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, can change throughout the lifespan (see Doidge, 2007 or Schwartz, 2003). It is never too late to change.
I work collaboratively to help people discover the best versions of themselves, to repair broken relationships, to forgive the wounds of the past, and to discover strategies to help them enjoy a greater quality of life. I hope you will contact me and we can discuss what you are looking for in a therapist. I encourage you to take the first step towards renewal.
