Therapy can help:
What happens over and over again in your life? 

What enslaves you? 

What would you like to change?

Do you find yourself thinking...    
"Why do I do this every time?"

"Nothing seems to change for me."

"I get in the same kind of relationships every time."



Therapy may help you understand more about yourself and your relationships by looking at patterns of behavior.

"I love my family, but every time I get around them, I feel like a kid."

"I wish I could be more assertive with people."

"I don't know how to talk to people in social situations."


Therapy can provide a place to practice new behaviors, a kind of "rehearsal for life." Potentially this can improve your ability to handle or cope with family or other social interactions, feel more satisfied in your relationships, and have more confidence and self-esteem.

"I want my life to have more meaning and purpose."

"I want to say what I mean and mean what I say."

"I don't know how to get what I want without feeling selfish or guilty."


Therapy may help you figure out what is important to you, sort out your priorities, take action towards dreams and goals.

"I have a hard time relaxing and letting go."

"Play? What's that? Too much work to be done and not enough time!"

"I'm not the creative sort..."


We live in a fast-paced, constantly changing,  multi-tasking society. Therapy can help you find more balance in your life which may lead to more fulfillment, spontaneity and creativity.

"My spouse tells me I don't express my feelings.  What is she/he talking about? I say what I think all the time!"

"I'm a very sensitive person. I feel things deeply. Sometimes though, my feelings get in the way."

"I can't stop thinking about things..."


Therapy can help you to develop the tools to communicate more clearly. Learn to feel and express both your thoughts and feelings in a way that is more helpful to yourself and others.

"If I don't take care of things myself, nothing will get done."

"I'm a perfectionist, I know it - but isn't that a good thing?"

"If I just try harder, surely it will work this time."


Therapy can assist you in identifying behaviors which are limiting, help you learn different ways of handling issues in your personal and professional life and increase your ability to create and visualize more options for yourself.
