Therapy at its best is a collaborative relationship that supports change and personal growth. It encourages exploration of what needs to change and how to make it happen. It can reduce suffering, eliminate unwanted behaviors, and remove barriers to change. And it provides a vehicle for increased self-awareness and an overall sense of wellness.
As a Clinical Psychologist in practice for over 30 years, I have witnessed the powerful behavioral changes, personal growth, and self-awareness that can be achieved through therapy.
Every individual is unique, and I welcome the opportunity to discover each person's potential through the therapeutic process.
