While every person has a unique story, there are certain life circumstances, events and feelings that can lead people to seek healing through therapy.

Common themes include:

  • Cycle of failed relationships
  • Breach of trust in a significant relationship
  • Problems with substance abuse and addictions, or a family member suffering from addiction
  • Feelings of being disconnected, confused or overwhelmed by life
  • Captivity to negative, self-defeating thought patterns
  • Desire to better understand and know yourself and your emotions
  • Sense that your experience of personal happiness could, or should, be deeper

"Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference." ~ Virginia Satir, psychologist and educator (1916-1988)
