Let’s get to the what and how
People frequently come to therapy with a desire to understand ‘why’ things are as they are. The ‘why’ of it all is typically the easy part. Questions of ‘what, how, when and where’ often are more useful. This is therapy where the rubber meets the road. Time to change. Why? Because it’s time to change.
Not what you want not what you’re trying to do.
We start with what is real for you. A lot of what causes all distress in our lives is our ability to avoid life as it is. Sometimes life is miserable. Avoiding this fact is human. We’re wired to avoid pain and seek out pleasure. And you can have more than moments of muted anxiety and fear of judgement. You can experience it all.
Here and Now
Together we can grow beyond fantasy. Beyond imagining what we do or don’t want. Or how life should or shouldn’t be. Together, we work to develop your own personal tool box to deal with life as it actually is.
What’s yours and what isn’t
A lot of the time people get confused about what is their problem and what isn’t. Knowing what we can change versus what we can’t change brings us up to our limits as people. This can be both liberating and painful. Working with me, you’ll learn to accept yourself as you are. Then you can chose to live differently.
You might thing that you are either good or bad, lazy or productive. Us humans? We have endless capacity to see ourselves and the world as being one thing or another. Funny thing? Over time, though this work, you might discover that the word ‘or‘ can be replaced with ‘and‘.
All of this takes work and time.
How long will therapy last? Everyone is different. Period. End of story. Recent research suggests that therapy typically lasts for 15 to 20 sessions. For clients who attend weekly, this means that four two six months can result in lasting change.
Who should go to therapy?
It depends. I use a wellness approach. It’s my belief that you are functional. When you are dead? You aren’t functional. Though your level of function may vary, together we build on your awareness of how your strengths can be weaknesses and how you may have some real power in parts of yourself you’re not entirely fond of.

Group therapy? NO Way.
Group therapy is better. People are lonelier than ever before. Social anxiety can only be cured through social contact. Your therapist can only see you through their eyes. With a group? more eyes. Not convinced:

Group therapy works better
This video is a bit detailed. And it captures well why groups are so much better at helping people become more comfortable with themselves
