Many times, people come to my office and tell me how they feel empty or lonely. Others talk with me about symptoms of depression and anxiety such as worry, irritability and circular thinking. It’s as if we lived caged in our own minds and bodies sometimes.
Psychotherapy can address these concerns. By looking at the barriers that prevent us from communicating directly and freely with others, we discover blocks to our own internal development. Addressing these emotional, psychological and relational barriers in a mutually created therapeutic process can lead to an engaged way of relating with oneself and others. It can help relieve depression, anxiety, self-criticism and loneliness.
