You're looking at therapy websites for good reason. Maybe you're stuggling with a relationship or with negative thoughts or feelings. Maybe you want to stop a bad habit like smoking or overeating or picking the same type of partner. Maybe you just want to stop hurting inside. 

Emotional concerns seldom just go away and can get worse with time. Think of this as Mother Nature's way of telling you it's time for change. 

In the same way your home can feel different after you rearrange the furniture, therapy does some "emotionally redecorating." Just like keeping the same furniture, therapy can't change who you are, it just shows you better ways of using what you have so you're more comfortable. 

Here are a
few ways that therapy, premarital counseling and hypnosis can help. If you have any questions please call me and I'll be happy to speak with you.
