"Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth." -Pema Chödrön

I believe that you have a deep wisdom inside you that talk psychotherapy can help you to access, understand, and learn from. In my experience, the path to this type of understanding is not linear, and while you may find some relief after our sessions, this type of work is rarely expedient or quick. It may feel frightening, at times, to learn about yourself. I believe that what we are most frightened of are the parts of ourselves that need the most care and attention.
