When it's time to find a safe and supportive place to explore life
"It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings."
A Bit About Therapy
Personalized Support for Mindful Change
WHAT KIND OF SUPPORT WOULD MAKE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE?
Some people come to therapy because they need an advocate, someone who will help them explore their goals and values, who believes in and supports them to be more self-directed, uncover the obstacles and discover strengths to creating the life they want.
Others want a sounding board and reflective feedback for important life transitions.
Therapy for others means having more choice and control over memories, thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
Some feel best supported with structure: step-by-step plans and accountability for actions and goals.
And some people care most about developing insight, and using mindfulness to gain insight, self-awareness and appreciation, and develop a greater purpose for their life.
Together, we will discover:
* Your expectations for therapy
* Your interest and readiness for change: unwanted behaviors, thoughts, feelings and circumstances
* How you relate to your self-care and regard
* How you relate to others and understanding and integrating your life experiences
* The most effective ways we can work together to meet your needs

We'll explore ways to increase your self-understanding and how you can best support yourself for sustained wellbeing.
It is important to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that takes some time, and necessitates participation and investment from client and therapist alike.

Children and their development are as unique as snowflakes. In an initial session with parents and caregivers, we'll discover your goals for therapy for your child. Ongoing check-ins and reflection will assist you in supporting those goals at home. Parenting skills and tools for improving behaviors, providing space for your child to explore and expand his or her own self-understanding and learning new behaviors and ways of thinking about things, may be a part of helping your child
A person between 12 and 18 years may be one of the rare types who willingly comes to counseling, but others are reluctant and mistrustful. Finding a place where you can have a supportive, private and confidential conversation to explore challenges in your life and important relationships can make all the difference. We'll work toward self-awareness and acceptance, perspective and expression where you will discover and create a solid, centered self you can count on to navigate life's ups and downs.
