We believe therapy can be beneficial to anyone seeking to improve their personal or professional lives. Therapy is a great opportunity to better understand ourselves and the ways in which we relate to others and to events in our lives. This process can lead to richer, more satisfying experiences and relationships, as well as a deeper sense of calm, intention, and direction in our day-to-day lives.
Others attend therapy to seek support for managing symptoms related to a diagnosed mental illness—depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, etc. Therapy can be extremely helpful in building coping strategies for symptom management, as well as understanding the function symptoms play in our daily lives and relationships.
Therapy can also be life saving for anyone who has experienced traumatic events or relationships. Be it physical, emotional or sexual abuse, neglect, or catastrophe, traumatic events have a way of reshaping our worldview and our capacity to feel safe, regulated, and capable of making effective decisions. A compassionate psychotherapist can help you rebuild a sense of trust in yourself and in the world, as well as a sense of mastery over the experiences that haunt you.
