"I once read a story about a man who would talk reassuringly to his cactus, letting it know that it was safe. The cactus learned that it no longer needed thorns. If you have had experiences that have closed off your openness to the world or your authentic self, you may have also grown thorns. Whether you have been touched by trauma, grief, loss, or simply an environment that does not understand you, I want to help you to find a way to live more fully. You have a place in the world. Let's try to find it together."

"You feel frustrated with your anxiety and the more you try to understand it and make it go away, the larger your anxiety gets. You have regular visits from your inner critic that replays every detail of your conversation, all the ways you failed, and all the ways people will judge you for it. Your thoughts spiral out of control when someone makes a comment about you. From the outside, you’ve got it together. You’re tidy, well kept, and apologetic to a fault; it’s rare if someone doesn’t like you. But underneath, you’re depleted, exhausted, and anxious. Life feels out of balance and you’re worn out with worry and stress."
