ABOUT THERAPY

therapy is…

  • A therapeutic relationship, between you and a trained mental health professional, that promotes growth and healing.

  • A place where you are accepted and met where you are, while still being challenged to grow and change in ways that are in alignment with your goals and who you are.

  • A place where you can feel safe, comfortable, and uninhibited as well as seen, heard, and understood.

  • A place to develop more awareness about yourself, others, and your environment.

  • A place to gain knowledge about psychology and health.

  • A place to acquire and develop healthy coping skills.

  • A place to learn how to problem solve, take action, and create change in your life.

  • A place to share your joys, hopes, dreams, and triumphs as well as disappointments, hurts, traumas, and setbacks.

  • Comforting, relaxing, exciting, fun, liberating, empowering, and life-changing.

  • Uncomfortable, painful, shocking, difficult, scary, exhausting, and LIFE-CHANGING.


requirements

People usually seek help when symptoms and situations become unbearable, and they are often entering therapy with many years worth of emotions, struggles, habits, internalized messages, and beliefs. Consequently, please be aware that long-term growth and healing require many things—time, patience, consistency, authenticity, diligence, courage, compassion—and therapy progresses differently for each person.
