    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.

    “If every event which occurred could be given a name, there would be no need for stories.” - John Berger, Once in Europa. Our lives unfold in the telling, and in our listener’s responses. Through telling and being heard we may be altered, our symptoms changed. This is the vision of possibility that the psychotherapeutic process offers.

    Everyone struggles with something, even if they don’t show it. Struggling alone is no way to live! And there is no shame in needing help, as humans don’t thrive alone. Psychotherapy can help you find your way to a greater sense of self and wellbeing.

    With therapy we have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of who we are, what internal motivations drive us, and why. This knowledge can positively affect the way we see and feel about ourselves. We can use it to change how we act and relate.

Such patterns mark an effort to cope with excessive anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, or other difficulties. Sharing this with others isn’t easy, but I offer a safe, confidential space to reflect on what’s happening in your life. Deeper self-understanding can shift your struggle.

    Beginning psychodynamic therapy is beginning a journey of self-knowledge. This journey leads to greater self-esteem, agency, resilience, vitality, and insight. It moves us from feeling disengaged in our lives to finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, allowing us to see the treasure of the present moment.

    We sometimes doubt that others truly understand what we are feeling, so we struggle in silence. This takes a toll on our minds and our bodies and leaves us feeling anxious or depressed. I offer a place to have these thoughts and feelings held, respected, and cared for. A place for you to explore yourself with another.

    If you find yourself dissatisfied with your life or merely going through the motions of living, you may benefit from psychotherapy. A strong therapeutic alliance can help anchor you and prevent you from sliding toward impulsive tendencies or repetitive behaviours. A confidential therapeutic situation can help contain feelings of shame, guilt, or grief, and address low self-esteem that is compounded by self-destructive thoughts or behaviours.

    There seems to be an expectation when asked “How are you doing?” that only a positive response is invited. If we’re all “good”, why are many of us actually feeling bad? Psychotherapy provides a space where what you are truly feeling will be heard. Together, we will reflect and attend with care to whatever you are feeling.

    Emotional suffering is painful and lonely. It doesn’t have to be. Psychotherapy is talk therapy that promises change through self-awareness. The more understanding we have of our-selves and our feelings, the more choice, fulfillment, and peace we have in our lives. Under-standing our emotional life contributes greatly to the joy of life.

    Good psychotherapy can be powerful work. It expands our personalities and ability to think, feel, and connect in new, more deeply satisfying ways. It orders our chaos and clarifies who we are. Entering therapy is a courageous move toward change, and toward creating and enjoying a life of our own conscious design.

    At times we can be strangers to ourselves; our actions and responses seem mysteriously out of place and "not me”. If we slow down enough to approach these moments with curiosity and without judgement, we no longer have to remain under the thumb of what lies beyond our awareness. Therapy helps slow things down.
