Helping Adults and Teens Live Happier Lives
Anxiety and depression can be overcome. It may feel discouraging and you might feel alone. If you or your teen suffer from anxiety or depression it can feel like you’re on an island with no way to get back to the people you once were – the people you’re meant to be. You start every day with a pit in your stomach, not sure how you’ll face the day. You might experience panic attacks and a consistent state of worry. You could lack motivation, have trouble getting out of bed, and feel like a black cloud follows you around throughout the day.

So What Will My Sessions Look like?
In your first session, we will complete an assessment to identify what your challenges are and what goals you want to work towards. This session is also about us getting to know each other and seeing if we “click.” Together, we will come up with what is called a treatment plan (which is really just a grand game-plan for how we’re going to tackle what’s holding you back) during our second session and then we will then begin to meet regularly to work towards your goals.
I know therapy works.
But. (Isn’t there always a but?)
It only works if you feel comfortable with your therapist; if you “click” and if you are willing to do the work. Now doing the work is different for everyone. For some, showing up is a huge effort and is enough to create meaningful change, for others you need to learn new skills and practice putting these into practice in between sessions. Your therapist will create a safe, empowering space to help you do both.
Sometimes you need to become dependent before you can become independent. What this means is that in the beginning we may need to work intensively (once a week) to build a strong relationship and help you gain an understanding and awareness of what’s going on. Then we begin to make changes. Eventually, you will become more independent and sessions will move to bi-weekly or monthly until you feel ready to end therapy.
If you’re reading this thinking “I am simply too sad or too tired or too unmotivated to work with you” then you’re in the perfect place.
This is exactly what we are trained to support you with. You can learn to take small steps. Then bigger steps. We’ll tackle leaps later. And we will do it together.
