You've always been able to work your way out of things when you put your mind to it. But this is different. No matter what you do, you feel stuck.
Maybe you haven't found your way out yet, but part of you knows life can be better than this. Maybe that has led you here.
There are many reasons people come into therapy. You may feel like you're faking it through your day, wearing a mask so no one knows how much is going on inside. Perhaps your relationships and work are no longer satisfying. The chatter in your head may have you always on edge. At the same time, you may feel like you have no energy, no excitement for life anymore. Your mind and body may both be exhausted and in pain. Trying to control it with your famliar methods isn't working. Whether it's anxiety, depression, emotional roller coaster rides, body image issues, or unhealthy behaviors, it comes down to deciding one thing: something has to change. Even considering this idea, and exploring new ways of inciting that change, takes tremendous courage.
Change--while difficult--is possible, and therapy can be a powerful tool in this process by helping you to build understanding of yourself, gain support and confidence, and develop new patterns and behaviors. As a clinical psychologist, I work collaboratively with people to identify the source of their pain and empower them to resolve it using evidenced-based treatments.
My aim is to help people develop the insight, tools, and trust in themselves necessary to tap into their own fundamental strengths, no matter how far away those might feel. It is important you find the help that feels right for you when you embark on such work, so please explore my website to learn more about my work and the process of therapy. I welcome you to contact me with any questions, and I wish you all the best in the work you are setting out to do.
