The Benefits of Therapy

Therapy is a personal choice. It is a process that gives liberation and freedom to the person receiving it. It motivates and inspires. It promotes growth and progress. It is a process of self-discovery that can help people learn how to deal more effectively with situations in their lives such as relationship issues, anxiety and depression. Therapy can help people feel more comfortable with themselves and with some of the struggles that come from their daily lives.

The therapy process helps people get “unstuck”. Through insight and increased self awareness, people are able to gain a better understanding of their own behavior, their feelings, thoughts and past events that motivate them. The most useful benefit of therapy is often an improvement in health and well being. This often translates into increased self-confidence, productivity, and a greater sense of vitality and peace of mind. People of any age can grow and profit from the experience of therapy. There is no “wrong” time to begin.

Issues That Bring Individuals Into Counseling:
A feeling that life could be more satisfying than it is, that one could feel better about oneself, feel less stressed, and more easily reach one’s potential goals.

Wanting to feel more effective and comfortable in relationships, wanting to stop repeating the same problems with your partner or your children, parents, coworkers and friends. Wanting to communicate better and resolve conflicts more effectively.

Feeling stressed and anxious; having difficulties at work or school, problems concentrating or sleeping, fighting with family members, and experiencing failing health.

Coping with stressful life events such as a relationship breakup or divorce, a chronic or life threatening illness or death of a loved one.

Feeling as if life is too difficult to manage. Wanting to stop feeling trapped and victimized by one’s past. Wanting to move beyond haunting memories of early experiences such as growing up in a family with addictions or being abused as a child or adolescent.

Wanting to gain greater insight into oneself. Wanting to discover why one behaves in certain ways and to learn why certain experiences trigger feelings that seem to come from nowhere.

Anxiety is general definition for a broad spectrum of issues that could be impacting your life. Social anxiety, PTSD, phobias, or general anxiety and stress could be overwhelming you and making a serious impact on the way you live.

Anxiety can impact your daily decisions, your social life, your stress levels, your physical responses to situation, and many other aspects of living.

Through collaborative therapy and/or Neurofeedback, an alternative treatment to medication, we can discover what will work best for you.


Depression affects a number of people throughout the world. While it may or may not be clinical depression, it still makes a great impact on our lives. It changes the way you feel, the way you react, your sleeping patterns, your eating patterns and in general, makes it more difficult to function doing everyday tasks.

If you or someone you know is experiencing depression, we can talk about the ways in which I can help you, whether it is talk therapy, Neurofeedback or both.

Life Transition

We are constantly in a state of transition. However, major transitions in life can sometimes rock our feeling of stability, like the birth of a new baby, moving in with your new spouse or partner, engagement, marriage, losing a job, the end of a relationship, divorce, and retirement. All these things and more may impact how you feel about yourself, your choices and may change the way you interact with others.

If you are experiencing the shift of change and would like to talk through it, please contact me, and we can figure out how to handle it together. Remember each person is different, so each conversation and solution will be different as well.

Self Esteem

Our self-esteem and self worth is how we define ourselves on a daily basis. It impacts our choices, who we spend time with, how we communicate and interact with others and most importantly how we feel about ourselves. When you do not feel good about yourself, you tend to seclude yourself and judge yourself harshly.

Therapy is a place where you can communicate your thoughts and not be judged. It can help build you up and make you feel like the wonderful person that others see in you.

Call me for more information on how we can work together to build you up and make you feel like you are the best person you can be.
