The human experience is a complicated one. Our journeys are filled with great joys, pains, and struggles. It can be incredibly helpful to have a confidant outside of your personal circle to gain greater insight and bring your life back into perspective when you need it. Therapy can help you get the most out of your time in this world. Why not invest in your emotional health and build a well-lived life?

Therapy is a process. Dr. Craven understands that trust and openness on behalf of her clients is earned. She is warm and personable and adapts to meet her client's needs in the moment. She is intentional in her approach to check-in often about how a client feels about their therapy, re-assesses what is most helpful, and works collaboratively to ensure her clients get the most out of their experience in therapy. Dr. Craven's aim is not just to help clients manage a particular "symptoms" superficially, but help them gain a richer understanding of their experience and gain a greater sense of relief from their distress at a deeper level for long term benefit. Although Dr. Craven's approach varies depending on the needs of the unique individual sitting across from her, she is inspired in her work by the great minds before her that brought insight into how to live life well regardless of what challenge lies ahead. Dr. Craven hopes to help her clients find their own way of taking the reigns in life; even in situations that they cannot change. We always have the option to change ourselves.
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” ― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
