Common Therapy Issues

You may seek professional help for many reasons. Perhaps you are facing life changes, a divorce, relationship issues or need help understanding and managing mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression. It is a common misconception that people who go to therapy are “mentally ill” when often most of our clients are simply people struggling with lives everyday issues.

Many people seek help because they have identified specific goals or issues that they want to work on. Some may be encouraged by family, friends, or medical professionals to seek help. No matter what brings you here, it takes great courage to admit you need help and a compelling vision to see it through. Together, we can make healthy life changes and heal blockages from the past to promote self-actualization, empower self-growth, improve relationships, and reduce emotional suffering.
