Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am so glad you are here. Whatever challenges you may bring, I welcome you. I think of therapy as time we set aside to dedicate ourselves to moving beyond what keeps us stuck. It is a time of learning. A time of exploring who we are and how we want to relate to the world around us. I believe in you and trust that you have what it takes to become more of the person you want to be. Let's figure this out.
