I believe that our environment has a lot to do with the unhealthy thoughts or behaviors we develop. Sometimes we are blamed for these habits and feel like an outcast, or a burden on others. You didn’t ask for these issues to appear. You didn’t singlehandedly cause them. Everyone deserves someone in their corner who validates their struggle. Society tells us that if we don’t ask for help, then we just don’t care. That’s a lie. One of the hardest steps toward getting help is what you’re doing right now. I am proud of you.

Welcome! I’m glad you made the decision to seek counseling and I look forward to helping you reach your therapeutic goals. Counseling is more than just venting. It’s a process that requires commitment, transparency, and honesty- for the client and the therapist. Counseling can lead to increased self-awareness, a better understanding of behaviors, and peace regarding your past. It can help you discover your purpose, improve relationships, develop effective coping skills, and find hope in stressful situations. Counseling can be challenging and consists of taking an in-depth look at yourself. However, it is worth it!

Do you feel like the most wounded person in the room? Chronic pain/illness can make one feel that way. Regardless if your pain is visible or not, it can lead to a complicated journey of many unwanted symptoms such as anxiety and depression to name a few. Seeking therapy is a call to action to what is possible for healing, change, and growth. My goal as a therapist is to strengthen your capacity to understand perhaps some unresolved trauma and how it may be affecting your ability to manage your pain more effectively.

There are moments we face challenges that are difficult to overcome alone. Taking that first step to seek assistance can be terrifying, yet create relief at the same time. You deserve a place where you feel safe, heard, & respected! My role is to provide a safe place for you to feel validated in moments of discomfort & help create balance within your life. A place where your feedback is held in confidence. A place where we can work together to see noticeable improvements as we strive towards your goal. Does that mean it will be easy? No. However, as you enhance self-growth you'll begin to find new strengths from within.
