"Things do not change; we change."
Henry David Thoreau
Deborah Barkley MA, LMFT Psychotherapy
Taking the initiative to seek support requires courage, so congratulations for taking a step toward unlocking your truest potential.
Therapy offers a way for us to develop deeper understanding and awareness with our inner self and our relationship to and with the world around us.
Our relationships both with ourselves and those around us may feel unsatisfying or we may be suffering from feelings related to grief or loss. We may develop symptoms that feel frustrating, unmanageable or feel our quality of life diminishing. Moving to a place of understanding and insight unlocks our power to make choices that improve our lives and our relationships.
My role is to support you with identifying life enriching goals and resources while removing obstacles that may be hindering you from living a more gratifying life.
The first step toward change is often the most difficult, but it is also highly empowering. I believe that people are resilient and that you are your most valuable resource. That being said, receiving support in a non-judgmental environment while navigating the challenges of life provides a space for nurturing strengths, developing a deeper awareness around thoughts and feelings, cultivating new skills and experiencing healing and relief. It would be my privilege to support you in your journey.
