What you’ve been dealing with has really taken its toll. You’re here to find a way to eliminate stress, anxiety, and feelings of overwhelm. You may be feeling irritable, anxious, short-tempered, and tense. You know that there is more to what is going on and there is a deeper, core reason you are struggling.

Individual psychotherapy encourages you to dig deeply into your experiences. You can develop the skills, insight, and knowledge to achieve a great deal of confidence in your ability to confront and resolve difficult situations and experiences with ease. The work of psychotherapy is to help you connect your experiences and emotions so that you can better understand the struggles you are having and you will have greater insight about how to heal and move forward.
What to expect in psychotherapy:
- Psychotherapy works best when you are committed to the process. There are no quick fixes in psychotherapy, though you may have many “Ah-ha” moments that clarify exactly what you have been struggling with and what you might begin to do differently. Just like when you start an exercise program, you might first feel uncomfortable, stiff, and sore afterwards, this can be true, too, of the psychotherapeutic process. But soon, you will begin to see the results and feel the reward of your commitment.
- Psychotherapy is about being heard in a whole new way. Psychotherapists train for many years in the art of listening. Combined with empathy and regard, this type of listening helps you examine your struggles, frustrations, and hurts in a new, different, and empowered way. Many clients I work with say at some point in therapy: “I can’t believe one conversation just led me to a life-changing moment.”
- Psychotherapy is not about “advice giving.” Though at times we might talk about the next step to take, and I might encourage you to try new and different types of strategies or skills, my role is simply not to give you advice to solve a problem. My role is to help you find the answers and solutions that are meaningful to you. After all, you are the expert about you.
- Psychotherapy is about change. It is possible to change your reaction to certain situations, people, or events. You may find greater peace, relief, and empowerment. You are capable of making changes in the direction you need. You can expect that change will not always be easy, but you will find it is worthwhile.
