Together we will focus on increasing self understanding, developing tools to manage thoughts and emotions, and exploring what is observable on a surface level, as well as what may be happening unconsciously that perpetuates unwanted issues or problems. This approach to therapy is helpful for individuals looking to develop a deeper sense of oneself or for those who have had therapy before and are looking for something more. I often help people with the following goals: symptom relief, improved insight, greater personal agency, a strong and cohesive sense of self, higher self-esteem, recognizing and handling emotions, freedom to feel pleasure and serenity, and a capacity for love, work, and mature dependence. You can expect to speak freely without being told what to do or be given advice. Sessions are 45 minutes long and you will determine the pace and depth of our conversation.
