What is psychotherapy? How can a psychologist help you?
Psychotherapy is different things to different people. Mostly it is a place to heal, and to grow. It can be a quiet space to reflect on your life path and work through choices you may need to make. Therapy can challenge your perspective and help you look at life anew. It can be a supportive space in times of sadness and loss. Therapy can be a place to learn ways to manage uncomfortable emotions and situations. It can be a room to grow and learn about yourself, especially during periods of transition. Therapy can help you negotiate relationships. Therapy can be what you need it to be.
It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing and growth process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and therapist alike.I approach therapy as a collaborative endeavor. I bring to the process knowledge and expertise about human behavior and you bring to it your experience of yourself, your unique strengths and struggles. We will work together to help you reach your goals.
