Working with me might include a comprehensive assessment, in terms of daily patterns and health issues, so that we can understand all that might be playing into the current difficulties. I believe that you know yourself the best, though might need some help tapping into that knowledge, and have the power to move through challenges. I believe that us taking a collaborative approach, drawing on your self-knowledge, leads to the best result. I often suggest some things to do or practice in between sessions. This way, growth continues outside of my office and you have practical tools for feeling better in between sessions.
If this sounds good to you, I would encourage you to reach out so we can set up an initial session and discuss your goals. I look forward to working with you.
