Return to You

Do you ever feel lost?  Or as if some part of yourself has been forgotten or left behind? Do you ever wonder about your own habits and behaviors and long for understanding?  Have you ever thought "I just want to feel like myself again?" 

 

Perhaps you have a sense that you are still becoming "you," and you seek transformative growth to enhance the process.

 

Maybe you need help processing a trauma or crisis that is changing how you understand yourself and the world.

 

The search for self can be challenging (and deliciously rewarding). The presence of a compassionate other person can be a remarkable catalyst for self-discovery and healing.

 

It's easy to lose oneself in the stresses and traumas of life. The world provides countless disappointments, hardships, crises, and heartbreaks that leave us feeling shattered, scattered, lost  and uncertain.  We might find ourselves acting in destructive ways, or frantically disorganized, or parlayzed by indecision, fear or apathy. We have become separated from our true selves.When we are un-aligned in this way, life can feel empty or painful. Reconnecting to your essential Self can relieve your suffering, leading to a more fulfilling life, with stronger relationships, greater energy, and more joy. How can psychotherapy help?

 

Psychotherapy offers the extraordinary experience of an exclusive relationship with a non-judging, and non-defensive other. As your therapist, I am fully dedicated to knowing you, treating you with compassionate positive regard, and supporting your  unique process of healing. Together we can discover who You are, and work through the obstacles that block your connection to your Self. My job is to help you access the wisdom, strength, and resilience that is inherently yours.
