Individual Therapy Can Help Adults:
- Deal with the stress and anxieties of life

- Explore feelings and find their life’s purpose
- Create healthier and more trusting relationships
- Attain self-acceptance and experience more joy
A therapist isn’t a friend or family member that you need to protect or impress. Therapy exists to provide professional help so you can take control of your life and create the changes in your life you desire.
The special relationship that you develop with your therapist allows you to be more open in your explorations and focus solely on learning more about you and what you need to do to create the life you want.
I have a wide range of experience working with women and men who are struggling to cope with stress, relationship, family, and career issues, and I provide a confidential and compassionate environment in which my clients can explore their lives honestly and objectively.
Should we choose to work together, our initial efforts will focus on helping you develop insights about yourself and on helping you experience less stress and anxiety about your future.
I will also encourage you to examine the tactics you use to avoid experiencing painful emotions and how you suppress your desires. Avoiding your feelings prevents you from knowing your own truth and experiencing and enjoying your life to the fullest. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to be aware of your life’s purpose or the direction you would like your life to take when you are cut off from your own feelings and thought processes.
Through our work together, you will learn strategies and tools to decrease negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors and work toward improving your relationship with yourself. Becoming more mindful of your own thought patterns and how they affect your physical and emotional well-being can make an enormous difference in your ability to stay calm and deal with life’s inevitable frustrations.
You will also have the opportunity to discover destructive emotional cycles that may be coming up in your professional life, with your friends, or in your intimate relationships. Once acknowledged, we can work together to find the triggers for these cycles so you can begin to create different responses that allow you to feel better about yourself and others.
Individual therapy is not always easy or straightforward. And the length of time, and amount of work, it takes to be effective depends on your goals and your commitment to affecting change.
However, if you’re ready to learn more about yourself and what you can do to create the life you’d like to be living, there are few alternatives as effective as individual psychotherapy.
