People seek therapy for so many reasons, but mostly we all want to feel loved, safe & understood. We want to feel a sense purpose & feel good enough as we are & yet so many of us struggle to feel these ways.

Are there moments when you feel overwhelmed, tired of feeling stressed, anxious, and discouraged from life events that are out of your control? Maybe you have experienced a significant loss like a relationship ending, a job loss, a move, loss of financial security, or the death of a loved one? All life changes both positive and negative can throw you into grief, a state of disequilibrium, where you struggle to find a new normal or you experience difficulties in your relationships.
Do you feel overwhelmed by stress, anxiety or defeat, as a result of a significant life change or trauma? Maybe a relationship has ended or a new phase of life has just begun. Perhaps you’re living with the long-term effects of abuse, assault, or other traumatic experiences. You may feel unsafe & out of control of your life or emotions. Eventually, these things start to overflow into other areas of life...and yet despite how hard things are right now, you know there’s more to life than this.
You feel like you are on the verge of losing your mind. No matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to quiet your worrying thoughts. On the inside, you probably feel dread in the pit of your stomach as a constant reminder that something bad could happen at a moment's notice. This makes it very hard to concentrate or to let your guard down. Constant worry or intrusive thoughts leave you feeling exhausted and irritable. An unspoken consequence of your anxiety is a defeating sense of shame.

Couples seeking to feel a great sense of relief from the cycle of fighting/conflict. Couples that are feeling disconnected and want to figure out a new of of being together that promotes healing, understanding and acceptance.
So many of us are searching for who we truly are. We’re so encapsulated in who we should be being for others, that we end up losing ourselves. This shows up most frequently in intimate relationships. Our desire for unconditional love from another supersedes our need for physical connection. Emotion trumps sexuality. And what goes on within our mind shuts down the abilities of our body. Are you feeling lost in your relationship? Are you craving more intimacy?
Do you sometimes feel stressed, exhausted, unfulfilled, or disconnected? When triggered do you shut down, have unexpected emotions, or dissociate? Do you work hard to please others and be successful, but no matter what you do, it never feels like you are good enough? Therapy may be able to help you learn new coping skills, decrease painful emotions and negative thoughts about yourself related to past events, and become more resilient.
