Psychotherapy

Welcome, I am so glad you're here!

"The courage to tell the story of who you truly are is a difficult, yet meaningful task.  As a therapist, I deeply admire my clients for their bravery and I am here to support them on their journey towards self-discovery."

                                                    -Joanna Tonken, RP

Who is Psychotherapy for?

 You find yourself at a pivotal moment in life. You feel dissatisfied or overwhelmed  by everyday life events. You are unsure of how you got here but you are longing for change. Although you may be skeptical about therapy, you are ready for that change and your search has led you here. Asking for help is not a weakness, it is a sign of courage.

Is therapy right for you? Therapy is for everyone.

     While your experiences are unique, it is important to know that you are not alone. Everyone has obstacles in their life that can make them feel anxious, confused, afraid and sometimes full of despair - it is all part of being human. Therapy is a powerful experience that allows you to sort through your past and to examine your present so that you can engage fully in a meaningful and intentional future. Being seen, heard and understood by another can open you up to new avenues of thinking and, in turn, change your life.
