Hello! I’m Ryan.
You have felt pressure to succeed your whole life. It may have been pressure from your family: a successful parent’s expectations to live up to, or a family culture where second-best wasn’t good enough. Or maybe it has been pressure you put on yourself to make others happy, to always do more, or to be the best. You find yourself stuck in a cycle of achieving but never feeling good enough, not really liking yourself, and feeling a lack of joy, freedom, and ease in your life. You want to break free from self-doubt and finally find true self-acceptance.
Change is possible
Through the many complex situations of our lives, our socialization, and our upbringing, we often learn to think of ourselves and our lives in ways that are self-limiting, self-defeating, and even harmful. Therapy is a process of relearning new, more flexible, and healthier ways of thinking, of gaining self-awareness and self-understanding, and of changing old patterns and rediscovering who you are. Whatever you have been through, these changes are possible.
How I can help
I help my clients overcome problems like depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, self-doubt, and self-criticism by transforming the way they relate to their thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and beliefs. I can give you the tools and teach you the skills to manage and change intrusive thoughts, develop healthier beliefs about yourself, and achieve balance in your life.
