Ready to heal?

Take the steps today to live the life you yearn for...

It's a big decision. It's hard to ask for help, especially when the issue is as personal as what you have been struggling with. How can you know that therapy will help? How can you know that this therapist can be trusted? Perhaps you have tried therapy before. If it was a good experience you may be concerned that another therapist will never understand you as well as the last one. If it was a bad experience you may have lost trust in the therapeutic process. Maybe you have already spoken to a Rabbi or Rebbetzin, a teacher or a friend. It made you feel a little better or a little worse, but the situation didn't really change. You've perhaps read self-help books and articles on the internet dealing with the issues that you struggle with, but you have not found substantial help. The idea of even speaking out loud about the thoughts that have been going through your head is overwhelming, how will you be able to speak to a stranger about such things?!?

 

Picking up the phone to call a therapist and make an appointment takes tremendous courage, but the pain and frustration that you feel are strong enough to push you to try to make a change. 

 

I know what that's like.

 

I understand how hard it is to take that brave step to turn to someone for help. I have seen numerous people start therapy scared, overwhelmed and frustrated, yet after a number of months they have seen major changes in their lives, sometimes in ways that they never expected. 

 

I am committed to doing everything that I can to make the therapeutic experience a safe, healing, and supportive experience for each of my clients. I invite you to come and meet me. We will discuss your concerns, hopes and fears and build a treatment plan to help you meet your needs and goals. We will work at a pace that feels challenging enough to help you grow and slow enough to maintain your safety and security.

 

I look forward to seeing you...
