The decision to begin therapy can be exciting, humbling, and empowering – all at the same time. I’ll help you work through your challenges and areas of struggle, as we make progress together toward inner healing and emotional strength. Taking the first step is always the most difficult, and please remember there is never shame in seeking help on your journey to improved mental health and well-being.
Step 1: Deciding To Seek Therapy Services
In the fast-paced modern world, it is completely normal to face stressful situations and personal struggles. However, when your mental or emotional health begins to infringe on your daily happiness, or interfere with your ability to function at home, work, or in social situations, therapy will help you take back control of your life with the help of a trusted professional. Seeking therapy is not only empowering, but will enhance your personal relationships, promote greater self-awareness, and provide proven tools and coping strategies to use during times of challenge.
Step 2: Finding The Right Therapist
Especially at the beginning of your therapy journey, it can be difficult pouring your heart out to a therapist, defining your internal truths, and facing your personal weaknesses. I strive to provide a safe, confidential space that is established on a foundation of care, compassion, and trust, giving my patients an encouraging and highly collaborative environment in which we’ll grow together as we connect on a personal level. I cultivate an open environment of honest communication and mutual respect as we progress forward to a place of positive change and personal development.
Step 3: Getting Started
I am happy to offer my patients an initial phone consultation at no charge prior to our first scheduled session. This call will serve as a way to get to know a little bit about each other, discuss your therapy goals, and talk about any questions you have about my practice or the therapy process in general. Simply contact us here to set up your free consultation. Once you feel comfortable in moving forward, we’ll work together to come up with a therapy plan and meeting schedule that fits your specific needs. I offer both in-person sessions and tele-health therapy sessions for your convenience.
STep 4: Benefits of Therapy
I truly believe in the power of using a holistic, customized therapy approach that integrates memories and emotions from the past into the present, allowing for full-circle inner healing to take place. Through the process of internally recognizing, not suppressing, your thoughts and emotions, therapy allows you to move forward toward meaningful change and powerful insights rooted in self-awareness. Rather than internalizing your fears and emotions, we’ll work on strategies that allow you to externalize parts of yourself with vulnerability, while avoiding your personal triggers and overcoming self-limiting behavioral patterns.
