How I Can Help

All of us would like to be happy and successful.  But sometimes life gets in the way.  Whether you feel completely overwhelmed or just a little stuck, it can be helpful to talk with someone who has the education and experience to help you.  Ask yourself:

      Have I forgotten what it’s like to feel happy?

      Is anxiety preventing me from doing what I want to do?

      Am I facing a complicated decision?

      . . . going through a difficult transition?

      . . . discouraged about an important relationship?

      Do some memories keep me from moving on?

The decision to begin therapy does not mean there is something “wrong” with you.  It means that you believe that your life could be better, and you might be ready to make some changes.
