Most people can benefit from psychotherapy at some time in their lives. In general, people who seek therapy are not mentally ill, but are dealing with problems that affect how they feel and how they feel about themselves.
Psychotherapy is an intimate relationship between a client and psychotherapist, which is characterized by one single rule: the relationship primarily serves the client’s needs and facilitates his or her emotional well-being and personal growth.
My role as your therapist is to help guide you to your own solutions, break ineffective patterns of behavior, and help you resolve deeper issues in a safe and supportive environment.
