Entering psychotherapy is one of the most important decisions a person can make in life, requiring courage, humility, and a powerful desire to resolve one's difficulties and become the person you want to be. I know because I've done it several times! It will be a privilege to earn your trust, make you feel comfortable, and join with you in a collaborative process to unlock your inner resources and reach your personal goals.
