About Therapy

Taking the first step is not always easy...

Many issues you struggle with may stem from loss, a loss can and does cause a fluctuation of emotions that feel impossible to manage and like they are encompassing all of you and all of your life. Loss can derive from a multitude of experiences, such as:

Loss of relationship or loved one


Loss of trust

Loss of control

Loss of health, ability, independence

Loss of job, career, income, status, responsibility, position.

Loss of a dream

Trapped potential.

Loss of identity

Fear has the potential to limit and to lessen the ability to participate fully in one’s

life. If fear is left unchecked, the resulting dependency can result in irrationality and the

loss of autonomy. Fear can also cause the loss of relationships and connections through

the isolation that fear-based decisions often create.
