Contrary to popular belief, not everyone that seeks therapy is depressed!
Individuals who want to grow
Personal growth is a lifelong process unique to each individual. By exploring your values, attachments, desires and aversions to thinking and behavior patterns which inhibit your growth, we will be able to increase your personal awareness and mind-body balance.
Individuals looking to boost creativity
For those looking to boost cognitive ability, reduce over-justification, create psychological distance, surround themselves with inspiration or reconceptualize a perceived problem.
Individuals looking to be challenged positively
An unfortunate aspect of life is that we often create obstacles, usually unconsciously, that may serve some sort of immediate purpose, but end up being long-term liabilities.

Regrettably, these obstacles become intractable and end up preventing people from changing when they shift from beneficial to burdensome.

Unfortunately, the same people often feel they failed as a result of not having a "sounding board" to process or not being held accountable to their goal.
