The Process

“The secret to your recovery is to learn to embrace your own history. Look at it, become aware of it, and experience your feelings about the less than nurturing events of your past because if you don’t, the issues from your history will be held in minimization, denial and delusion and truly be behind you as demons you are not aware of. And the situation will continue to make you miserable through your own dysfunctional behaviors.” — Pia Mellody

The Benefits of Therapy

By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life. Through this process you can move from what your past has programmed within you to who you choose to be! Therapy is a collaborative process where your therapist will work with you to understand your historical experiences and how they are impacting you currently. It’s a partnership, and your active participation will be key to your progress. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire. It’s a space where you can explore your feelings, identify underlying issues, and develop strategies to build a stronger sense of self.
