At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want.
~ Lao Tzu

To have joy and fulfillment in our lives is a desire we all share. At times, though, the path ahead becomes unclear, and we can lose faith in our ability to meet life with clarity and confidence. In an attempt to manage feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and fear, we may unconsciously return to self-limiting habits of thought and behavior. This can disconnect us from our inner wisdom and those with whom we want to be connected. These patterns can intensify the difficulties we want to overcome and undermine our ability to successfully navigate the process of change to create the life we envision.

Our decision to seek assistance in reclaiming our well-being is a courageous act of self-compassion. The therapeutic relationship presents an environment of collaboration and safety in which to thoughtfully explore how we engage in self-limiting perspectives and behaviors. Through deconstructing the psychological misunderstandings that cause our suffering, we gain the opportunity to experience relief while cultivating internal peace and happiness. The steady presence of a psychotherapist provides the guidance to discover different ways of responding to life’s challenges, as well as life’s calling, while offering encouragement to clarify and follow one’s path with personal integrity.
