Often times when our emotional needs aren't met early in life and our interactions with our caregivers are fraught with tension and conflict, we develop adaptive ways of being and relating to others to help keep us safe. As we grow older these mechanisms that were once protective may begin to negatively impact our moods, decision-making, and sense of purpose in life, as well as affect our capacity to maintain meaningful relationships. I will work collaboratively with you in determining your goals for therapy. My intent is to support you in gaining more self-awareness, self-compassion, and confidence. You don't have to continue suffering alone. When we are seen, heard, and understood, within a trusting and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship, the unbearable becomes more bearable, as does our innate capacity for resilience and growth.
