In therapy, I integrate essential elements into the healing journey. Together, we will explore aspects of your life that may have been overshadowed by depression, evaluating their value and reintegrating them to build a stronger foundation capable of withstanding challenges. Additionally, we'll consider adding further components to enhance this foundation as you move forward. I eagerly anticipate meeting you and collaborating on your path to healing.
