What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a very personal and specific process of exploration and discovery pursued for the purpose of emotional healing and personal growth. 

Therapy can introduce a number of benefits. Those who engage in therapy often report gaining effective and sustained relief from a wide range of difficulties. 

These include not only healing from past hurt and trauma, but also learning the kind of internal and interpersonal tools and skills that can help you better flourish in life and relationships.

In therapy, your psychotherapist teams up with you to facilitate the kind of changes that you desire. Because every person is unique, your therapist will seek to understand your specific life situation and background. This is to maximize your chances of success.

It is normal to feel nervous about contacting a therapist. It is not unusual to worry that you will be misunderstood or perhaps even judged. Some are not sure that a therapist can help them. Most notice their nervousness fades as their concerns are met with respectful, compassionate attention.

Therapy can enhance your quality of life, not only for yourself, but also for your most cherished relationships.

I invite you to contact me for a free confidential 20-minute phone consultation. I would be happy to discuss your specific situation and how I can help.
