Psychotherapy invites you to delve inward to understand the intricacies of your behaviors and where they are rooted. The purpose is to create a brighter and better informed future. I know we often think about reaching out for help and making an appointment long before we actually take action. Regardless of if you work with me or another therapist, know that you’re awesome for taking actionable steps towards health and positive change!
