Pronouns: they, them, theirs

Are you wondering about yourself, your life, your motives, your dreams and desires?  Do you want to find out more about yourself or your relationships to others or the world?

I believe we are all living documents, ever-changing and ever-curious. And I think the goal of therapy is to provide a platform for that curiosity.

Many people come to therapy to explore: past lives, present lives, and future possibilities.  In therapy, you can get to know yourself — the person who has been through all of it.

As a therapist, I help provide a home base so you can explore all that you want to and build the skills to do so. I know beginning therapy can be nerve-wracking and may open the door to changes that can be uncomfortable, so I try to make it a welcoming and understanding environment, no matter your curiosity or uniqueness. If you are interested in exploring, I hope to find an email or call from you soon!
