Beginning the process of Psychotherapy is a courageous step! I believe that the emergence of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, addiction, reltionship difficulties, grief & mourning, sexual orientation/identity, work/career issues, self-esteem, spiritual, and others are often a call from psyche, announcing the arrival of a new level of self-awareness, consciousness, and psycho-spiritual integration. We become introduced to previously-unknown aspects of ourselves which come "online" when it is time to transition to a new phase of our life and development.
These psychic eruptions often make themselves known in such recognizeable phenomena as dreams, fantasies, images, and emotional/psychological symptoms. Most of us need an experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate guide to help us navigate this sometimes difficult yet potentially fruitful period. I feel privileged to be called-on to respectfully accompany my patients on this powerful and profoundly-meaningful journey.
