Most of the time we are busy managing our lives, working, going to school, caring for family, and fulfilling various life roles. There may not be any space leftover for us to think deeply about who we are and what our needs are. Therapy is a safe and reflective space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, childhood and family experiences, relationships, career and aspirations.
Curiosity and compassion guide us as we journey into your internal world. Being curious together supports our learning about your beliefs and values, exploration of assumptions you hold, and understanding your emotional makeup. As you become more familiar with your inner life, you may begin to feel expansive and a sense that you have more choice and agency in your life. With greater self-knowledge, you can identify and embrace aspects where you can bring self-acceptance and you can select aspects of your life you want to work together to create change.
