Individual Therapy

Therapy is a process of self-reflection, growth and self-discovery. The therapy room is a safe environment where an individual externalizes thoughts, emotions, visualizes goals, gets support during difficult times, builds awareness, learn about onseself maladaptive patterns and dynamics of relationships and also, have the opportunity to create a long lasting change in life.
