No matter what the problem may be, for many, the frustrations come down to the Groundhog's Day principle (as in the Bill Murray movie), i.e. you come up against the same blocks, unsatisfying results, impasses, and unrealized goals that have troubled you for years, and you just can't seem to break through. Your life may be constricted by self-defeating behaviors, or you may feel stuck in unsatisfying relationship patterns. Feeling unsatisfied and unfulfilled contributes to unhappiness and an eroded sense of self. Early life experiences and relationships help to shed light on these issues.
Behavioral and emotional reactions can be understood, even when they seem perplexing. Therapy provides you with an opportunity to understand what drives your behavior and what keeps you stuck. Once you become aware of the motivation for your behavior, you can focus on achieving your goals. I work collaboratively with clients to help unravel the mystery of the 'whys' of behavior, so you can unlock destructive patterns pave the way for new and more productive behaviors, and obtain desirable and gratifying results.
