Individual Therapy

"Self movement is where change occurs, not outside forces."
~ Phyllis Fortunato

individual therapy with phyllis fortunato

Whatever you feel in the present moment can be lifted so it becomes part of your past -- opening yourself to a brighter future.

This journey starts with you and I collaborating. I believe that clients have an innate ability to heal current and past pain that may show up as anxiety, depression, grief, confusion, trauma, anger, relationship stress or life dissatisfaction. I strive to meet you where you are in a non-pathologizing way and focus our work through an Attachment based approach in therapy. I have completed Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically valid treatment approach for adults and individuals and couples.

As your therapist, my goal is to work collaboratively to support you in developing a better understanding of yourself in order to embrace your individual strengths and vulnerabilities and create desired life changes.

We will work together to clarify your cycles and patterns, to increase awareness of your feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Connecting with these parts of self offer a better understanding of the impact you have on yourself and others.

Together we work to strengthen your connections within yourself and/or within your relationships, change unwanted patterns and behaviors, or heal echoes of the past. 

You've taken the positive step to reading this right now. Take the next step to schedule a conversation to see how we may work together.
