A PLACE TO BE UNDERSTOOD
My clients are typically young people who are often working through stressors and anxieties related to school, work, art, family, romance, health, and friendships, among other challenges. They are navigating the end of adolescence into early adulthood and the decisions and experiences which accompany this time of life.
I find psychotherapy to be most effective as a means to help clarify your feelings and thoughts, to understand yourself better. It’s a place to reflect on and consider your life and how you want to grow as a person and in relationships. It’s a process of designing how to get from here to there, and also removing resistances which hold you back.
