During the first twenty-five years of our lives, we go through vast growth and change. With each age and developmental stage, we are faced with unique stressors and challenges. Sometimes we master these challenges and changes, and sometimes we experience difficulty or obstacles and can’t figure out the best direction for us to take or how to navigate moving forward. When this happens, it’s a sign that we can benefit from and may need some help and support.
Whether you’re having difficulty mastering social anxiety, figuring out friendships and relationships, handling all the pressures on your shoulders, navigating “adulting” or the teenage years, struggling with self esteem, liking yourself, or managing depression, anxiety, or uncomfortable feelings, therapy can help. Therapy is a place where you can take the time and have the space to focus on yourself when life becomes difficult.
In the beginning of therapy, our first task will to be building a relationship. We will be new to each other, so it will take some time for you to trust, feel comfortable, and secure with me. When that happens, we will begin to form a kind of team so we can collaborate together to help you with what you’re struggling with. Most importantly, I want to create a comfortable, secure, and trusting space and environment for you. One goal of mine is to help you begin to feel that when we meet you are in a space absent of judgement and instead filled with acceptance, compassion, and support.
