What We Do ?

We know it’s not easy asking for help. You have probably contemplated many times if therapy is really what you need. Will that be helpful? Will it be confidential? We know what’s that like, we once experienced it and we have heard it many times. You are probably used to doing things on your own. You are STRONG AND EXHAUSTED. It’s hard sharing what you are experiencing because usually, you are the person everyone goes to for help. You probably fight daily the struggle of getting out there and making things happen or just Maybe you are single and constantly wonder why you keep dating partners who just don’t love you the way you deserve. Maybe you are in a relationship that isn’t working for you but you are scared to completely let it go because the idea of being alone is daunting and you don’t want to miss the physical touches even if it’s not always consistent. Maybe you are in a relationship that has some strength but needs some fine-tuning. Maybe you are a parent, who is concerned about your child’s development or emotional well-being. You may struggle with feelings of powerlessness and fear about the future of your child. If you can relate to any of these, you are in the right place. We offer a calm, warm place for you to talk, learn, unlearn, and be empowered so that you can be graceful with yourself, your past, and those around you. You learn strategies and unlearn unhealthy mindset. You learn to heal from experience so that you don’t have to live day by day just coping. We are a team of a psychologist who believes in educating our clients about their ‘Why’s. We allow you to be your true authentic self by allowing you to show up as all of you. All parts of you are welcome. Our Mission is to Educate. Empower. Grace because We See You. We Hear You. What’s the benefit of working with one of us? We have asked our clients what has been their experience working with us and we have consistently heard this feedback: I was hesitant at first because I was worried about confidentiality and wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share but from I entered the office it felt warm and welcoming. My psychologist listened and for the first time, I didn’t have to worry about how much to say. I have found myself. I use to second guess things even when I appeared sure. It’s such a relief to not second-guess myself. It’s freeing I wasn’t sure how to support my child based on my child’s needs. One of the things I like the most is that parents are involved in the process and get feedback. How to book an appointment with us?
