HELPFUL RESOURCES & WHAT TO EXPECT
Therapy begins with discussing your reason for seeking services and identifying goals you would like to accomplish.
Our time together will consist of identifying your strengths, patterns of behavior, challenging old beliefs and learning new ways of living.
We will work with you to build an emotionally safe and respectful relationship.
Therapy is a safe place but the process can cause uncomfortable feelings at times. This discomfort is a part of the growing process for change to occur. Our work is a collaborative effort and we will work at your pace, be respectful of your boundaries while providing a protected and warm environment.

10 helpful Emergency Stress-Stoppers:
Count to 10 before you speak or react.
Take few slow, deep breaths until you feel your body un-clench a bit.
Go for a walk, even if it's just to the restroom and back. It can help break the tension and give you a chance to think things through.
Try a quick meditation or prayer to get some perspective.
If it's not urgent, sleep on it and respond tomorrow.
Walk away from the situation for a while, and handle it later once things have calmed down.
Break down big problems into smaller parts. Take one step at a time, instead of trying to tackle everything at once.
Turn some chill music or an inspirational podcast to help you deal with road rage.
Take a break to pet the dog, hug a loved one or do something to help someone else.
Work out or do something active.
