Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We all face problems in life which can at times seem overwhelming. We may not be able to clearly see solutions to those problems because of our own stress level, emotional pain, and confusion over what is best. In therapy, I can help you by giving you a compassionate, safe, non-judgemental place to express your deepest thoughts and feelings, explore options to resolve the problems you are facing, and support and encourage you as you face them. In therapy, you will gain insight, wisdom, and practical coping skills to deal with your personal issues with more confidence.
