We all need respect, compassionate understanding, and faith in our inherent goodness. From this nurturing foundation we can create satisfying relationships and a meaningful life.
People seek counseling for many different reasons. Some want to improve their relationships. Others want relief from anxiety, depression, anger, stress or grief. Some are confused or troubled by transitions in their lives. Some want to be free of addictions or unhealthy habits. And some want to heal from painful experiences in their past.
Counseling can empower you to make the changes you seek. It can also help you learn to accept yourself more fully. There does not have to be something "wrong" with you for you to benefit from self-reflection under the guidance of an experienced therapist.
