We all carry around a metaphorical bag of stuff with us. That bag is filled with our thoughts, feelings, experiences, identity—everything that makes us who we are. In individual therapy, we unpack your bag together. We explore each item, get curious about it, investigate it. How did that item get in the bag? What is the impact of carrying it around with you?
Together, we make meaning of your items. Some items you will decide are essential. Others are weighing you down and preventing you from being your authentic self. I help you decide what you want to do with those items and then figure out how to do it.
While this is certainly an oversimplification, it serves as a good introduction to what you can expect in therapy. During our work together, I pay special attention to the relationship that you and I build, your emotional experience as we process what is in the bag, and the impact of our identities, both different and shared.
Opening the bag for the first time can feel overwhelming, but it's the first step in a journey that can bring positive, lasting change into your everyday life. Most importantly, you don’t have to do this alone.
