I understand that beginning therapy can be a challenging experience, but it can also be highly rewarding. It does require an openness to commit to change what currently is not working in your life. By entering into therapy, you are choosing to learn ways to change behaviors, thoughts, and relationship patterns that may be contributing to the distress you currently feel. Or you may be seeking ways to cope with a current stressful or negative situations. It is courageous to begin the process of counseling, and I will support and facilitate your treatment needs and goals for healthier, more fulfilling life.

Life can often be challenging. You may feel you've gotten "off track" and need some direction. You may be overwhelmed with things and don't know what to do or how to make it better. It may be starting to affect your relationships, and you don't know how to stop it. You may be wondering what's wrong with you and why this keeps happening, or whether you're depressed. Perhaps you're having panic attacks that come out of nowhere. Or maybe you seem to have developed social anxiety. Perhaps you just don't feel like yourself or aren't content with your life. You want things to be different, you just don't know how to make that happen. You might be wondering whether you're always going to feel this way. You've got a lot going for you, you've accomplished quite a bit, but it still feels like there's something missing. You're not sure what else to do. Most of us feel this way at some point in our lives. Especially when trying to handle the stress of life, relationships and the impact of certain events all at once.

This was not the life you envisioned when you decided to have a family. You knew there would be tough days, of course, but not that nearly every day would be really, really difficult to get through. The tantrums that can last for hours, the almost constant arguments, the exasperating sullenness; you do not feel in control of your life anymore, much less your child’s behavior. Most days you just find yourself giving in to avoid major blow-ups and you know this is only making everything worse in the long run.
