I imagine that your decision to begin therapy is a complex one. 

You might be wrestling with thoughts and fears that you aren't even comfortable with yet, let alone sharing them with a complete stranger.

I get it. 

You might be feeling really vulnerable right now and you're hoping that this giant leap is worth it and that you might leave feeling better. You're hurting, you don't know who you are anymore and you're not sure how to get to where you want to be.

I want you to know that you matter and that you deserve to live your life with a clear sense of identity. 

I could list all my credentials, training and expertise here, but i'm sure you're more concerned with whether we like each other, whether you can trust me and how I can help you. 

I can offer you a connection, hope, guidance, a space free of judgment, and  practical strategies to get you feeling well again quickly. I will do that all while treating your fears and pain with the respect they deserve. 

Alliance Therapy Practice is driven by a passion to help people feel less isolated on their journey to living a fulfilling life.  Whether you're seeking direction for the first time or struggling to rediscover your sense of self after a life transition, I can help you and I would be delighted to work with you. 

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please call me at (203)921-6653 or email me at carolyn@alliancetherapypractice.com to schedule an appointment.
