Therapy was something that I had considered for many years (since I was in middle school), but I was always reluctant to go. I feared that it would not actually alleviate my stress and anxiety, so I never went. As a college student, the academic challenges, difficulties of navigating relationships, dealing with breakups, and taking on more leadership roles in organizations worsened my anxiety. I decided it was time to make a change to live a healthier life and seeking therapy with Amaris was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
During my sessions with Amaris, she truly provides a listening ear and creates a space where I can be transparent and honest about the things I have been struggling with. By talking things out, I am able to recognize the sources of the deep-rooted issues I face and with Amaris’ help we are able to devise ways for me to overcome those struggles. Within each session, I learn something new about myself and gain a different perspective on the various situations we discuss. Since I have been seeing Amaris, I have noticed a boost in my confidence and most importantly a stronger peace of mind.
