Message to clients

My clients generally come to me seeking help with eating and body image issues, anxiety, feelings of depression, or some other life challenge. Working together, we use a combination of psychotherapeutic approaches to understand causes and contributors and plot a course of action. The process of therapy of therapy typically involves helping clients get in better touch with their feelings and values. Over the course of our work together you can expect to move from a problem solving mode to one of deepening self knowledge and expanding potential. Most clients find psychotherapy a rewarding, and often exciting journey.
