I believe most people have the desire and capacity to create meaning and purpose in their lives.
Over time we develop behavior patterns and strategies in order to negotiate life more smoothly.
When life events create excessive stress, our usual behavior patterns may no longer work. This certainly affects how we feel about ourselves and others.
There are times when individuals need help exploring and understanding what they want to change. Since it is difficult to see ourselves objectively, therapy can help clarify what is working and what is getting in the way. Many times we sabotage our efforts by not being able to see how our behavior is making a situation worse.
Lasting change requires insight and practice so new responses can become integrated over time.
I encourage clients to use opportunities to practice what they learn in between sessions in order to experience the results they want. This also builds momentum.
Most of the people I see are those struggling with: anxiety, panic episodes, addictions, strained relationships, depression, phobias, trauma (PTSD), feelings of despair and life changes.
