People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.


The client and the therapist will work together to identify goals for the therapy. Common issues include: general anxiety and stress, difficult childhood and family experiences (past and present), relationship struggles, depression, homesickness, and eating and body image issues. Clients also come to work toward developing a better self-image or to achieve personal growth. The approach to such treatment varies from person to person, but may include a good deal of initial work involving the client's past experiences. For others, treatment may emphasize current experiences. We hope to provide a supportive environment in which our clients are able to work toward their unique goals.
