Psychology and Psychotherapy have not always been seen from a positive light. People have seen therapy as part of a treatment for a “mental illness”. Our approach is from the position of maintaining your “mental health”. We live in a demanding highly stressed society. By developing a deeper understanding of ones behaviors, stressors, moods and thoughts and changing the unhealthy and enhancing the healthy, one will develop a healthier attitude towards oneself and society.

Our focus is to empower people to break these unhealthy patterns: unhealthy relationships, negative thinking patterns and difficulty establishing and maintaining connections. Change is not easy, but it is a personal choice, we can support you through this process, therapy will not change you – you will change you.
