Therapy provides a safe space to explore and make sense of life patterns, and to discuss difficult experiences, negative thoughts and emotions, and symptoms of stress that hold you back. Our compassionate therapists will help you unpack and reorganize how you understand yourself, the circumstances around you, and what you need to navigate the stuck spots.
What to expect
At Shift, we hold true to the value of a collaborative, positive, and genuine therapeutic relationship. We believe a non-judgmental and affirming space is essential to change.
The process typically begins with discussing reasons for initiating therapy, setting goals, and gathering current and historical information about you. In subsequent sessions we work to expand your awareness, challenge patterns, explore and process life events, and identify what you need to thrive.
Authenticity is often something we take for granted. We assume that being ‘me’ just happens on its own, when in reality it takes work. The human experience is loaded with social expectation and messages to be or become something. These pressures often stop us from being true to our own spirit and character. Therapy can help you find your truth and the courage to live it.
