    As you consider the idea of therapy and begin your search for a therapist, I’m guessing you may feel pretty vulnerable. I get it, I’ve been there. Trusting another with your personal story and letting go of some of the protections you have put in place over the years takes time. As your unique story unfolds, we will get there - together.

    Traumatic experience occurring in early life, as well as ongoing instances of neglect, loss or unmet need, may significantly affect our sense of self. Negative events act as filters that constrain our development and perceptions. But things can get better. Psychotherapy can help to us to understand ourselves more fully, develop more satisfying relationships, and live the lives we long to lead.
